ようこそ! (Yōkoso!)(Welcome!)

Rugby World Cup 2019 came one step closer on Wednesday, with New Zealand formally handing the William Webb-Ellis Cup over to the host nation, Japan.

Japan scored possibly the easiest draw of the tournament, getting Ireland and Scotland, as well as European winning qualifier and the Play-off winner, in Pool A.

South Africa were drawn with New Zealand, Italy, Africa 1 and Repechage Winner in Pool B.

Pool C is being deemed the ‘pool of death’, as it has England, France and Argentina, as well as the Americas 1 and Oceania 2.

Michael Cheika, coach of Australia, was caught with a huge smile on his face following the draw, possibly as his Australian team have been grouped with Wales, Georgia, Oceania 1 and Americas 2 in Pool D.

So the countdown has officially begun for Rugby World Cup 2019, which starts on September 20, with the final to be played on November 2.
