Australia’s defeat means their rating has slightly shrunk but they still occupy third, 1.51 points above the leading northern hemisphere nation England.
South Africa remain second with an unchanged rating point total after surviving a massive scare against Argentina in Salta, a late penalty from Morné Steyn securing a 33-31 win and denying Los Pumas a first ever win over their visitors.
Argentina stay 12th in the rankings as The Rugby Championship takes a week’s break, resuming on 6 September when Australia host South Africa and Argentina travel to New Zealand.
