  1. Thanks for this!! Is there any scenario where Italy, France, or Spain (or all 3) could be seeded at the World Cup?

    1. France and Spain are very close to 7th (and thus a seeded) spot in the predicted October ranking. So one slip of Wales (the current predicted number 7) is probably enough for that to happen.
      Italy is much too far away (in points) to have any realistic chance to be seeded. First task for them is to try to qualify via the play-offs.
      The predicted October 2017 ranking.
