Kenya dropped for a second week in a row in World rankings to position 30.

The Simbas dropped one places due to their 17-42 defeat to Hong Kong at the ongoing 2019 Rugby World Cup repechage in France. 

With 53.85 points, Kenya went down as a result of Hong Kong’s rise to 22nd. World Rugby Rankings are calculated using a 'Points Exchange' system, in which sides take points off each other based on the match result. Whatever one side gains, the other loses.

Kenya exchanged places with Chile who suffered a 0-73 defeat to touring Maori All Blacks.

Canada, who beat Germany in the other repechage match, remain 21st with the latter dropping two places -from 26 to 28th. 

Kenya’s next match is against Germany in the last round of the repechage on Friday Nov 23 at 8pm in France.
