World Rankings as at 12th June 2011


There is currently no official system of World Rankings for Australian Football, as the international game is still mostly amateur, still maturing and there are often difficulties in nations having all their best players available. However, due to popular demand, since 2006 worldfootynews.com has been providing rankings.

This is the first update since 4th April 2011 and is the last prior to the 2011 AFL International Cup. Only two eligible matches have been played, with Ireland (ranked 4th) comfortably defeating Great Britain (10th) in England, whilst in Paris home side France lost fairly convincingly to Germany (13th). It was the debut for France in full field internationals, remembering it takes 8 matches to be consider fully ranked on our table. The results saw all teams hold steady in their positions.
