Prior to the current rankings, the Eagles were ranked 92nd in the world. Botswana, on the other hand, have plummeted from 71st  to 76th in the rankings. 

Ghana, who won the Challenge Trophy at this year’s Africa Men’s Sevens in South Africa qualified to the pool stage of the newly-created Rugby Africa Cup.

The Eagles will clash with Zimbabwe who moved up just one place to 30th  in the world rankings and Tunisia who maintained their 39th position.
