Despite suffering a loss of nearly six-tenths of points, Kenya Simbas remain in 28th place in the World Rugby rankings released on Monday.

Namibia confirmed their place at RWC 2019 after the 53-28 win a result that lifts them above Canada in the rankings to 22nd place. Namibia are now less than half a point away from catching Hong Kong in 21st.

Kenya will now play Canada, Hong Kong and Germany for the right to claim the 20th and final ticket to Japan at the RWC 2019 repechage tournament in November.

After securing their place in the Gold Cup for next season with a 38-18 win away to Uganda, Zimbabwe climb eight places in the rankings to 37th. Uganda fall six places to 41st.

Tunisia also live to fight another day in Africa’s top-tier competition, thanks to their 36-13 win over Morocco, and as an added bonus they climb two places to 40th, overtaking Sri Lanka and Colombia in the process.

Morocco's fall of four places to 47th sees the Ivory Coast and Guyana shift up one, to 45th and 46th respectively.
