Check it out, the Kiwis have been knocked off the top spot for the first time in the history of the IRB world rankings:

IRB Rankings - 23 October 2007

Yes, I know, the rankings have only been in existence for a short time, but it's the end of a 40 month rein for the All Blacks.

Now it would be nice to see the Boks hold this spot for 40 months, but given the current political shenanigans, I don't think this will happen.
