    Here are the rankings from October 2016 when this thread started:

     

    1 Australia 206
    2 New Zealand 185
    3 England 165
    4 Jamaica 147
    5 South Africa 140

    Although teams 2 to 4 have moved around a little the only big change is Jamaica seem to have grabbed most of NZ points slide.

    Aust +3
    Eng +8
    Jam +25
    NZ -13
    SA +3

    And that has basically coincided with the SANZEA Quad Series starting which Jamaica is not involved in. 😕

    Those rankings are bizarre, how many games have Jamaica played since the 2018 Comm Games?

    3 against a very average at best England B- team, and what else?

    2 against T&T I think. Or was it Barbados? One of the 2.

    As for the weak opposition, that’s one of the things about the rankings. They don’t take into account whether a team is “very average at best B-“. Jamaica’s 3-0 series win earned them just as many points as if they had beaten an absolute full strength England team 3-0.

    By the way, these were the rankings just after the Comm Games last year…

    1 Australia 213
    2 New Zealand 175
    3 England 169
    4 Jamaica 161
    5 South Africa 140

    You have to remember that every year on July 1, one whole year’s worth of results are tossed out of the rankings, meaning that if the year in question was a bad one, that in itself can mean a big jump in a team’s rating without them having to do anything.

    Jamaica has been quite consistent of late. Remember, not only did they beat that under-strength Eng 3-0, but they’ve also beaten the full strength NZ the last 3 times they’ve played them as well.

    And if a country wants to send a very average at best B- team to an international series, they must wear the consequences. Everyone knows “the rules”. :shrug:

    It certainly wasn’t their A team,  that’s for sure.

    I can’t believe Jamaica are 2nd, when they hardly even play.  They play less than Malwai and Uganda.

    Doubt the stupid game against the Men, and the meaningful game against the All Stars will count as anything.  Fiji maybe.

    There is only 1 point between 2nd, 3rd and 4th.  Netball rankings are like Tennis rankings, often mean not much.
