World Rankings as at end 20th August 2016
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, worldfootynews.com has been providing rankings since 2006.
This is our first formal World Rankings since 1st August 2015, and follows the completion of the 2016 European Championships.
There was a disappointingly small turnout for the full field tournament but it still created some movement in the rankings. Without their host of stars that are playing Down Under (both in the AFL and lower levels) the Irish went down to Great Britain in the final despite a narrow win a few days earlier. As a result Ireland dropped one spot in our rankings and Great Britain up two spots. The big winners were Germany, knocking off Sweden twice to rise 3 places on the ladder, with Sweden falling by the same amount. New Zealand now sit 3rd behind Australia and PNG courtesy of Ireland's slip.
