South Africa will climb above France into second with victory over New Zealand at Ellis Park.

Meanwhile, New Zealand will climb back above England if they avoid defeat in South Africa.

The All Blacks must beat the Springboks by more than 15 points to climb to third. A win by a smaller margin would still leave South Africa 0.02 rating points better off than New Zealand.

New Zealand can fall no lower than fifth even with an emphatic defeat as Australia cannot gain enough points in victory to leapfrog them.

Argentina will remain ninth whatever happens against Australia this weekend.

Australia cannot gain any places in victory but will drop below Scotland if beaten by more than 15 points to equal their lowest ever ranking of seventh.
