Tonga stay fourth but have narrowed the gap on England after beating Great Britain and Australia, while Papua New Guinea have climbed four places to sixth via Saturday's win over the Lions in Port Moresby .

"I would like to congratulate New Zealand on achieving their No.1 position," IRF CEO Nigel Wood said.

"They have certainly cemented their place as a genuine top-four nation and, along with other Pacific nations, throws the competition wide open for Rugby League World Cup 2021."
