Four years after Australia held the previous Rugby World Cup competition coming runners up to England, it is now France’s turn to host it. The upcoming tournament runs from 7 September to 20 October with matches being played in all regions around France in cities including Paris, Nantes and Bordeaux. Some matches are also taking place in the UK.
Teams are divided into four pool groups of five teams each - Australia is in pool B and France is in pool D. The teams who finished in the top eight in the 2003 World Cup are automatically entered. These include England who are in Pool A and New Zealand who are in Pool C. The remaining teams have had to qualify for the tournament.
Australia has won the tournament more times than any other country having held the title two out of the five times the event has been held. France has been runners up twice but never won the competition. For Australia and France to meet they will both have had to make it through to the final. So go the Aussies and bon chance to the French.
