A look at the pools


The 20 best sides in the world have been split into 4 pools based on their rankings in 2020. As of 21/05/2023, Ireland and France are the two best teams in the world, however they were put in band two, whilst England and Wales are in band one. This has meant the pool stage is much more spicier than people may have imagined it’d be.

Pool A

Pool A features the first casualty of the French and the Irish, with France in this pool with New Zealand. An absolutely killer clash and whoever comes out on top of that group is in a much stronger position. Don’t count out the Italian’s causing some concern though.

Pool B

Pool B sees Ireland in with holders South Africa. This means that if France, New Zealand, South Africa and Ireland all qualify out of their pool, they will be facing each other in the quarter-finals. However, that isn’t a certainty, as Scotland join them in Pool B. A phenomenal last two years have meant the Scots have put themselves on the map and up to fifth in the world rankings!

Pool C

Pool C isn’t exactly incredibly exciting. Wales and Australia are in Pool C as the two top seeds and both of them aren’t lighting the world up at the moment. Despite that, there isn’t much competition in Group C. Both sides should be expecting to make it out of their group so the real battle  comes down to those two to see who’ll top Pool C.

Pool D

Pool D features three sides who are a far cry away from the top tier of sides, but definitely better than most. England, Japan and Argentina will be battling it out for two spaces in Pool D. England will be hoping to pull out some form from somewhere, so they don’t slip up against Argentina and Japan like Ireland have done in the past two tournaments.
