    Thanks for that. Now, see, netball wouldn’t have to be quite that complicated. But it’s clear that Soccer knows that the importance of their biggest event should impact on the rankings.

    Yes if England can consistently beat NZ (and Australia – can’t see that happening personally) then the points will come and they will move up but as you say NZ have had a particularly shab year but with the talent at Pulse I can’t see that always being the case.

    Four years is too long. Ideally the rankings would reflect the probability of one team beating another right now, and I would expect England to be favourite to beat New Zealand, for example, if they played a game tomorrow.

    The teams have to play a certain number of games in the past 4 years to qualify (it’s only 8 which isn’t really enough) but it’s the last 3 year’s results which count towards their ranking. And the past year’s games are worth double what the previous 2 years were worth. So on July 1 the results from 2014/15 will be wiped from the system, 2015/16 and 2016/17 will remain and be worth half of the results from 2017/18.

    That was how St Lucia qualified for Glasgow. I think they played exactly 8 games in the 4 year period, most of which came at a single Caribbean tournament where they went pretty well but they did little or nothing for the rest of the 4 year period. And we saw how that turned out. Not good. A minimum of 12 games would be better, so at least an average of 3 per year.

    Wow. Has England ever been in second position, and has New Zealand ever not been in top 2. + good on Jamaica for that achievement. Top 5 teams are getting really close now. Malawi and Uganda not too far behind. Exciting stuff for world netball

    When is INF updating the world rankings in light of all the recent test matches?

    Not sure but it should be pretty soon. And it’s going to be REALLY interesting.

    If any of the teams end up with the same about of points, how would they determine the rankings. Would they just make the teams equal in the ranking, or do they use another stat to separate them?

    England should lose more points for sending such a poor team to Jamaica.  Hell even Uganda might beat them.

    Can’t agree mcleod. They rested a few of their big stars – who absolutely need a break ahead of a big 2019. Overuse injury concerns/off season surgeries/mental freshness/occ health and safety are all valid reasons. They gave their next players down valuable court time, and these players are going to be the future of English netball. How else will they learn other than playing against the best nations. No point sending them to Europe Netball style tournaments – they need to see what it’s like playing top 5 sides.

    Yes all the players are in need of a break, but England are playing Uganda in December in 3 tests.  Um why and just why.  I thought NZ played a lot of tests, but clearly England do as well.
