The Fiji Airways Flying Fijians have dropped a spot to 10th in the World Rugby Rankings.
Fiji was in 9th place but as a result of losing to Japan in the Pacific Nations Cup saw them drop to 10th place.
Fiji finished second in the PNC this year.
Meanwhile England moved past the Springboks courtesy of their victory over Wales at Twickenham.
Wales had the chance to move to No 1 in the rankings above New Zealand – who lost 47-26 to Australia in Perth – but it was not to be as they succumbed to a 33-19 defeat to England.
Rugby World Cup 2019 hosts Japan equal their best-ever World Rugby Ranking in winning the World Rugby Pacific Nations Cup.
Japan now sits in 9th place.
