The Rugby World Cup 2023 draw took place.
On December 14, the draw for the tenth in the history of the Webb Ellis rugby tournament took place in Paris.
A number of countries that played among themselves at the group stage of the 2019 World Cup will face each other again. For example, Ireland and Scotland, as well as England and Argentina, again fell into the same group. However, a real furor occurred in pool “C,” where Wales, Australia and Fiji again found themselves together. Georgia will join them if they win European Rugby Champions Cup.
Group A: New Zealand, France, Italy, America 1, Africa 1;
Group B: South Africa, Ireland, Scotland, Asia/Oceania, Europe 2;
Group “C”: Wales, Australia, Fiji, Europe 1, qualifier winner;
Group “D”: England, Japan, Argentina, Oceania 1, America 2.
The Rugby World Cup 2023 will be held from September 8 to October 21 in nine cities of France.
