Joe Schmidt: World rankings far away from Ireland’s thoughts

Joe Schmidt has brushed off Ireland topping the world rankings for the first time as irrelevant to the World Cup.

Ireland climbed to the summit of World Rugby’s rankings for the first time in Schmidt’s final match as head coach in Dublin, the hosts seeing off Wales 19-10.

Schmidt inherited an Ireland side languishing eighth in the world in 2013 and has turned them into a northern hemisphere powerhouse, and the Kiwi coach enjoyed an emotional last hurrah at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
