Uruguay RWC 2023: Ready to ramp up preparations

Uruguay RWC 2023: Ready to ramp up preparations

With two test series against Uruguay, Japan and Romania will have a clear picture of where they stand against their Rugby World Cup 2023 rivals when their action-packed summer games end. A historic year for the burgeoning rugby nation as they qualified for America 1 for the first time. The four games gave Los Teros their first competitive knockout round since 2021. Rugby World Cup 2023 fans can buy New Zealand Vs Uruguay Tickets from our website.

But until October, they had never competed in the game’s flagship tournament as the best team in America before. Uruguay has played the past two and four matches and is no stranger to the Rugby World Cup.

Uruguay is no stranger to the Rugby World Cup

After trailing the United States by 3 points in the first leg in Glendale, Colorado, Los Teros won the return leg 34-15 in Montevideo to go straight to France 2023 with a total of 50-34.

More matches against opponents that they will test in different ways. A qualifier for America 1 gives Los Teros extra time to prepare.

With many of the players still in the squad to this day and trip to Japan will bring back fond memories of the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

Uruguay defeated Fiji 30-27 on a thrilling day at Kamaishi Restoration Stadium, their third tournament win since their 1999 debut.

The first game of the Japan Tour will be held on June 18 at Chichibunomiya Stadium in Tokyo with a capacity of 27,000 fans. While the second game will be played with a capacity of 15,000 fans at Kitakyushu Mikuni Stadium.

“For Uruguay, the opportunity to play two games against a team like Japan is very important to prepare for the next World Cup,” said Uruguay president Santiago Slinger.

“Brave Blossoms is one of the fastest growing elite teams in recent years and is undoubtedly an example to follow.”

“It is very reassuring to visit Japan again after an unforgettable experience at the 2019 World Cup, as it is a country that has hosted us in a spectacular way. We are excited to be back and participate in these important matches.”

FAMILIAR FOES

In 2015, Uruguay only played twice against the Brave Blossoms in Japan, both 40-0 and 30-8.

But since then, great strides have been made to take advantage of Uruguay’s high-performing centres and involvement in the Pro Club Leagues, American Rugby Premier League and Major League Rugby.

Coach Esteban Meneses has also done an excellent job of motivating and bringing together a team that has grown in scope, after which he won a lucrative foreign deal in France and featured some of Los Teros’ star players at the Rugby World Cup 2019. Rugby World Cup fans can buy France Vs Uruguay Tickets from our website.

While Japan is nine places ahead and nearly 12 points ahead of Uruguay. Uruguay has placed the two teams not far apart in the World Rugby Men’s Rankings in the second half of the testing window.

Only two places and a half point apart is more known compared to Uruguay’s short association with the Brave Blossoms.

“The two games against Romania will be a huge opportunity to continue preparations for France 2023,” Meneses said.

“It will be a great opportunity to rank the inductees who play in Europe today, along with those who play in the MLS and NFL, against their direct opponents as they are currently number 17, and we are number 19.”

“We must use this opportunity to continue to grow in the game and as a team to achieve our great goal, the World Cup.”

Romania has only played Los Teros once before on Uruguayan soil, 21-21 in Montevideo in 2010. It was the first leg of the 2011 RWC final qualifying round and the South American missed a trip to New Zealand after a homecoming loss by 39-12.

The Oaks have won eight of their remaining nine games since a separate draw, with Los Teros’ only success in a 27-20 win in Bucharest in November 2018.

In the 2023 Rugby World Cup, Uruguay will face New Zealand, France, Italy and Africa 1 in Group A.

Preparations for Japan’s Rugby World Cup are serious with a comfortable 34-15 win over Uruguay in Tokyo today.

Brave Blossoms will face the same foe again this summer as part of four home tests, including two against France.

Japan was too hot on fire against Uruguay, stemming from the combination of young players and veterans making their historic run to the quarter-finals of the 2019 World Cup. Rugby World Cup fans can buy Rugby World Cup 2023 Tickets from our website.

Coach Takanobu Horikawa took over after Jamie Joseph’s departure. But the New Zealander will return next week for Kitakyushu’s second game against Uruguay.

“For 80 minutes we were in control and we were able to take it easy,” Horikawa said.

“We’ve been able to show our style and do what we’ve been working on for the past two weeks on both sides of the floor. I’m very happy with today’s game.”

At the World Cup next year, Japan will take on England, Argentina, Samoa and qualifiers from America.

Koga Nezuka and Tevita Tatafu tried to give Japan the lead against Uruguay in the first half. After which Kosuke Horikoshi, Koji Iino and Takeshi Hino scored after the break.

The four starters in the starting lineup in Japan made their debut.

“It’s great to meet new, up-and-coming youngsters,” said Wimpie van der Walt one of the few World Cup veterans, on the second row.

Diego Magno and Manuel Ardao scored in the second half for Uruguay. Which faces host countries France, New Zealand, Italy and African qualifiers at the World Cup.

“Our plan is to gain experience by competing at such a high level to prepare for the World Cup,” said Uruguay coach Esteban Meneses.

“I think today’s game has a lot of good things to learn from. When the World Cup comes, we will try to improve and be at our best.”

Japan defeated Uruguay 43-7 in Kitakyushu to warm up for their series against France.

The hosts made six attempts on Saturday to back up last week’s 34-15 win over the South Americans in Tokyo.

Captain Atsushi Sakate gave Japan a good start when he crossed the line five minutes later, and three penalties from Takuya Yamasawa in eight out of five quickly gave the hosts a 14-0 lead at the Mikuni World Stadium.

It then stagnated for a while, but midfielder Dylan Riley fiddled with a cross just before half-time, winger Ben Gunter scored a touchdown shortly after the break and South African-born winger Gerhard van den Heever made his test debut.

Riley centre Yusuke Kajimura scored the last goal for the Sakura, making it 36-0 after Uruguayan winger Santiago Civetta was sent into the penalty area.

Lee Seung Sin replaced Yamasawa, who missed four conversions and went into the extras after Kajimura’s five-pointer extended the lead to 43-0.

Los Teros finally reached the board through Manuel Ardao, number 8, six minutes from Japan. When a man fell to the ground after prop Keita Inagaki was shown a yellow card.

The 2019 World Cup quarter-finalists will face the 2023 World Cup host nation at Toyota Stadium next Saturday for a second test at Tokyo’s National Stadium next week.

Should the Rugby World Cup extension be done? And what about France’s top stadiums

Should the Rugby World Cup extension be done? And what about France’s top stadiums

Since 1987, the Rugby World Cup extension has been considered the pinnacle of international competition and is held every four years. Before its founding, there were no real global championships except regional competitions, starting with homegrown championships. This included England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Which grew into the Five Nations with France in 1910 and then the Six with Italy in 2000. Rugby World Cup fans can buy Rugby World Cup 2023 Tickets from our website.

Nevertheless, due to the growing popularity and participation of the sport around the world. The idea of global competition was floated repeatedly, especially in the 1950s. However, any proposal to host the Rugby World Cup is regularly opposed by national unions within the International Rugby Board (IRFB). But when the World Cup concept resurfaced in the 1980s, it was finally accepted.

Any proposal to host the Rugby World Cup extension is regularly opposed by national unions

The inaugural tournament was co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand in 1987, which is interesting considering they are two of the most ardent supporters, with 16 of the strongest national teams from around the world. The IRFB later changed to the International Rugby Board (IRB) in 1998 and then back to World Rugby (WR) in 2014.

The Evolution of the FIFA World Cup

Ironically, the Football World Cup has become one of the biggest events on the global sports calendar, as the Football Association actually grew out of the original Rugby League competition. With football (or soccer) quickly becoming a professional sport and the rugby league long retaining its amateur status, it was inevitable that the ‘beautiful game’ would become the most popular sport in the world.

The first FIFA World Cup was hosted by Uruguay in 1930, with 13 teams taking part, notably excluding the ‘mother countries’ England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland, who have their own champions, which they consider even better. But with the success of the event and subsequent championships in 1934 and 1938, after World War II, these ‘home countries’ decided to participate, using their original ‘home country’ championships to qualify.

In total, 13 teams took part in the 1950 World Cup, although the number of participating countries grew as the event’s global reach has grown. In 1954 there were 16 countries and in 1982, when Spain hosted the World Cup, there were 24 countries. Since the 1998 World Cup in France, the league has grown again to 32 teams, and Qatar will remain the same in 2022 before expanding to 48 teams for the 2026 World Cup.

The need to expand the Rugby World Cup extension

While there is a clear power base on the International Rugby Union stage, there is growing awareness that the sport could benefit from further integration, especially at an event as important as the Rugby World Cup. The current 20 teams participating are far too few, especially considering that 93 teams have participated in the qualifiers and 109 countries are in the official world rugby rankings. Rugby World Cup fans can buy rwc 2023 Tickets from our website.

The Rugby World Cup 2023 starts in France there will be only 20 teams
The Rugby World Cup 2023 starts in France there will be only 20 teams

The fact that rugby is now valued in more countries around the world than ever before suggests. That world rugby might be wise to expand and add more teams to its flagship international competition. When the 2023 Rugby World Cup starts in France there will be only 20 teams. The 2027 Rugby World Cup in Australia and the United States Rugby World Cup extension in 2031 will remain unchanged.

But will World Rugby follow the example of their FIFA cousins and decide to increase participation in the Rugby World Cup? That is still an open question at the moment, although it should be taken seriously. Especially given the growing popularity of the sport. In addition, there is growing evidence that quality has improved significantly in countries. I have never participated in the World Cup before.

Major improvements require approval

When assessing the need to expand the Rugby World Cup, we need only look at the example of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. Football fans will no doubt be looking for Arab betting sites for the 2022 FIFA World Cup. As five teams from the region will be competing, including Saudi Arabia and Iran. As well as host countries Qatar, as well as Morocco and Tunisia.

However, fans of these teams will not see their cherished rugby team at the Rugby World Cup 2023. This is not a problem for them as teams like Tunisia and Morocco are in the top 60 of the official rugby world rankings. It’s actually quite frustrating. Tunisia is currently in 40th place in the global rugby ranking.

Until the 2031 American Rugby World Cup and future plans, perhaps World Rugby should seriously consider expanding their game, perhaps following the same example FIFA set during the FIFA World Cup. Nothing inspires sports fans more than greater inclusivity, which is exactly how rugby can provide stronger support in the future.

France’s Best Rugby World Cup Stadiums

Stade de France, Saint-Denis
Stade de France, Saint-Denis

1. Stade de France, Saint-Denis

We start with France’s number one stadium in the country. Which regularly hosts rugby leagues and football matches on the sports calendar. Built for the 1998 FIFA World Cup, the stadium is now the home of French rugby, with 97 caps, including the 1999 RWC quarter-finals and the 2007 RWC final, with South Africa winning 15-6 against England. With 80,000 seats, the Stade de France will host a total of 10 games and kick off the highly anticipated match between host Le Blues and the All Blacks.

2. Stadium Municipal Toulouse, Toulouse

Since its creation as the home stadium for the 1938 FIFA World Cup, Toulouse Stadium has undergone three renovations. As well as hosted many European and Top 14 rugby matches. Rugby club Stade Toulousain plays its home games here. So it’s no stranger to elite competition in one of the world’s top rugby leagues. The stadium is located in the south of France, just a few kilometres from the Spanish border, on a picturesque island in the Garonne River. It has scheduled five RWC 2023 games in its 33,000-seat stadium, including two for the Japan national team and one for New Zealand.

3. OL Stadium or Parc Olympique Lyonnais, Lyon

The Parc Olympique Lyonnais is home to the football team Olympique Lyonnais. But since opening in 2016 it has hosted some extremely important rugby league matches. The Champions League and Challenge Cup finals are held here and are almost full. 14 Montpellier HR and Lyon OU collided in 2018. This state-of-the-art stadium has “hybrid turf” sewn onto the pitch, with a layer of sand and cork fibres beneath the natural turf before hitting the ground, said to reduce the risk of injury by up to 40 decreases.

4. Allianz Riviera, Nice

The Allianz Riviera usually hosts Liga 1 side OGC Nice. But Toulonnais rugby club is known to play a few domestic matches there as well. The stadium has only played 1 Rugby League game to date, with France comfortably beating Scotland 32-3 on 17 August 2019.

The Nice stadium will host just four matches during RWC 2023. Sharing the 35,169 capacity with Wales, England, Japan, Italy and Scotland some teams. Located on the Cote d’Azur (hence the name of the French Riviera), just west of Monaco, it offers fans a unique view of the coast, allowing fans to immerse themselves in the Mediterranean and the enchanting seaside resorts of St Tropez and Cannes.

5. Stade Pierre-Mauroy, Lille

In northern France, close to the French border, you’ll find the Stade Pierre-Mauroy. Which hosts events ranging from football and rugby to concerts. This is largely due to the state-of-the-art pitch configuration, where you can mechanically design the turf layout through a series of moving parts below the pitch surface.

It opened in August 2012, playing its first rugby match just 3 months later, with France beating Argentina 39-22. It is currently used by football club Lille OSC, but thanks to the retractable roof. RWC 2023 will host 5 matches in all weather conditions against countries. Such as France, England, Scotland and Samoa for up to 50,000 spectators.

Kerevi missed the All Blacks game in Melbourne after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament at the Commonwealth Games, with the injury sidelined until next season.

That means the 28-year-old will miss the entire rugby championship. As well as the upcoming year-end season in the Northern Hemisphere.

There were fears he would miss the Men’s Rugby World Cup 2023 in France in September, but Kerevi has allayed those concerns.

May return

“The best scenario is a return (in) April or May,” he told the Sydney Morning Herald. ‘Then I’m ready to come back. May at the latest.

“Hopefully I can play a few (Japan First Division) matches before the final. Next year there will be bigger fish to fry.”

Kerevi’s original ideas were to play in the Commonwealth Games and then return for the last four games of the rugby championship, but those plans were disrupted by an ACL injury.

“I thought I had a broken bone, (but) I got up and walked away, feeling good,” he said.

“Then the doctor looked. He said my ACL had no end. I started to get a headache.

“After an hour I accepted what was going on regardless of the outcome. When the scan came back I was found to be broken. I knew it was part of football. So, I don’t regret it.”

“I wasn’t sure at the time how they (his club Tokyo Sungoliath) would react, but after talking to them they were really supportive.”

“They understand it’s part of football. Nobody wants to get hurt, it’s part of the game. They’ve been a huge support to me and I’ll be back in December to finish my rehabilitation.”

Advice from The Wallaby legend

Kerevi spoke to Tim Horan, one of Australia’s great centres, about how he recovered from a similar injury in 1994. Interestingly, despite being 28 years apart, both have the same surgeon.

“The same doctor who operated on him also operated on me. Hopefully, I’ll have some luck with it,” Kerevi added.

“Shout out to Peter Myers, he is a great surgeon and he has told me so many great stories about the boy recovering from his ACL. I am very confident that I will be well again.”

France Rugby World Cup 2023 chief executive Claude Atcher was suspended

France Rugby World Cup 2023 chief executive Claude Atcher was suspended and the Match schedule final qualification

Claude Atcher, director of the Rugby World Cup 2023 organizing committee, has been suspended after an initial investigation into his workplace behaviour. L’Équipe reported in June that the 66-year-old had seen an “atmosphere of terror” at Groupement internet Public (GIP), where staff suffered panic attacks, burnout and verbal abuse. Rugby World Cup fans can buy Rugby World Cup 2023 Tickets from our website.

The newspaper also claimed that Atcher had paid bills of tens of thousands of euros by ordering small taxis for personal use.

Atcher denies financial impropriety and bullying. The allegations sparked an investigation that also revealed possible corruption and supported the claim that Atcher acted out of fear and did not follow financial rules properly.

Atcher’s suspension was supported by World Rugby, the governing body of the global rugby league. Atcher’s deputy Julien Collette has been installed as a temporary replacement.

France’s Sports Minister Amelie Oudea-Castera said the government must “act quickly” after an official report pointed to “worrying management practices” and “violations of financial integrity” within the organizing committee. She added that Atcher will face disciplinary proceedings that could lead to his dismissal.

Oudea-Castera continued: “The report identifies violations of economic and financial integrity and confirms the serious social problems [within France’s 2023 public interest group], a serious crisis of confidence, suffering for workers and psychological and social risks.”

The French Labor Inspectorate has ordered the release of a second report that will determine whether the management behaviour is a criminal offence.

“World Rugby is deeply concerned about the allegations made through the French media,” World Rugby said in a statement. “The well-being of the Rugby family is paramount and is at the heart of the values of unity, inclusion and fun that epitomize the Rugby World Cup, the ultimate celebration of unity in sport.”

“While the final assessment report has not yet been completed, it is imperative for World Rugby to continue to provide full support and assistance to the France 2023 Organizing Committee in working together to host a special Rugby World Cup in France.”

The development anticipates the trials of French Football Federation (FFR) presidents Atcher and Bernard Laporte in a separate corruption case. Laporte, who is also vice president of world rugby, faces six separate charges over his dealings with Mohed Altrad, who owns French club Montpellier and his company sponsors the French national team. Rugby World Cup fans can buy rwc Tickets from our website.

Laporte was charged with “corruption, peddling of influence, breach of trust to undermine the FFR, and unlawful gain by persons accused of carrying out public service assignments.”

Altrad faces several financial charges, including “active bribes from individuals accused of carrying out public service assignments”.

Atcher, FFR vice president Gilles Simon and Atcher partner Benoit Rover are also on trial. All five have denied various allegations. The trial begins on September 7.

Current Bookie’s favourite to win the Rugby World Cup 2023

Are you a big fan of rugby? If the answer is “yes”, we are 100% sure that you will hardly wait for the World Cup. In 2023, some of the best teams in global rugby will have the chance to confirm their quality.

In most cases, you’ll hear sports analytics showing that neither team has a major advantage over the other. We have to agree with that because the motivation of every player is high. In this case, miracles are always possible.

In reality, however, the quality of each team is very different. Online bookmakers are aware of this and have prepared a list of odds. This way people can know who has the best chance of winning the most valuable trophy (according to many players).

Overview of online betting options

Before we get to the point, we’re sure you’ll want to learn more about betting options. Well, believe it or not, you can bet on the winner of this game even today. They already exist and you can find them at various online bookmakers. However, make sure you have the best odds in front of you.

At www.bestbettingsites.com/ireland/skybet/ you can learn more about one of the betting sites where you can bet and make sure you have good betting conditions. Isn’t this a great way to wait for the World Cup to start?

But who has the best chance of becoming a world champion? Well, this is a question that deserves a longer analysis. So let’s see what bookmakers have to say. You might find some helpful advice there.

France was the country where one of the strangest rugby scenes ever took place

France: The Largest Favorite (2/1 odds)

Not so long ago, France was the country where one of the strangest rugby scenes ever took place. However, this is no longer the only reason why French rugby has become a viral topic in the world both online and offline. Believe it or not, bookmakers give France the best chance of winning the 2023 World Cup. Rugby World Cup 2023 fans can buy rwc 2023 Tickets from our website.

Their national team has some of the best players in the world such as Gregory Alldritt, Romain Ntamack, Antoine Dupont and more. The only reason they might miss this opportunity is that all of these players are inexperienced. For those who don’t know, most are 25 years old or younger. But until next year they have enough time to correct the mistakes they made in the past and gain the necessary experience.

The Second favourite: England (Odds 6/1)

The rivalry between England and France has been around for many years (not just in rugby). It seems that these two national teams have the highest chance of winning the most valuable trophy. In general, the reason bookmakers give England a big chance is Eddie Jones.

His so-called New England plan defines a 2023 World Cup title as the biggest goal. But winning championships is not his only goal. He wanted to change the style of rugby to make it more open. Logically, this will generate more interest in the sport, which will have a positive effect on the popularity of rugby in the country.

Ireland: why not? (Odds 8/1)

Who said Ireland had no chance of reaching and winning the World Cup final? At least that’s what the bookmakers say! Our beautiful country is third with 8/1 odds.

Ireland had no chance of reaching and winning the World Cup final
Ireland had no chance of reaching and winning the World Cup final

It’s hard to say whose name is more important in the team. Will James Lowe do anything special next year? Like online bookmakers, we believe Ireland has a chance to win. In the next period, they have the opportunity to correct all the mistakes made so far.

Ireland is still in the spotlight of rugby, which of course means there is no pressure on the players. In this case, it’s better to play than to be the favourite that everyone expects to win an international trophy, right?

Wales (25/1 odds)

The fourth place in Wales. Their national team even rose easily from first to fifth. However, we have to admit that they have a lot of injuries. It seems bookmakers know them too and have placed them fourth on this list. Gambling sites seem to think that Pivac has the ability to flip the Welsh side. He does have a tough job, especially when we take into account their negative record with the Six Nations. They only scored a total of 76 points, which would have been unthinkable a few years ago.

Final thoughts

These four teams currently have the best chances of winning the Rugby World Cup in 2023. We are not saying that this list will not change in the near future. It depends on many factors such as the fitness of the players, the form of each team, etc. Besides all the teams we have featured here, we have to say that Scotland and Italy are also close to the top of this list. According to online bookmakers, their chances may not be that great.

However, we should not underestimate these teams at all. As we said, the drive and desire of players to win is great, which can do wonders for us.

The Oaks were the representatives of the Rugby World Cup until they failed to qualify for the Japanese Championship three years ago.

Romania will be replaced in the final qualifier by Portugal. Who are just two points behind in the 2021 and 2022 tournaments?

The Oaks have won six out of ten Euro Rugby matches in 2021 and 2022, the most important being a 37-27 win over Portugal and a 38-12 win over the Netherlands at the final weekend.

Romania had to beat Portugal in Bucharest in February and trailed 22-13 at halftime. Attempts by Ovidiu Cojocaru, Alexandru Savin and Andre Gorin in the second half, however, resulted in a strong counterattack.

Going into the final round, Robinson’s side knew they had to beat the Netherlands to overtake Portugal in the standings, where they lead four times.

The Netherlands made two attempts to close the gap, but Romania finished strong again and sealed the victory with 26 points.

Robinson and his players didn’t know it then, but the victory in Amsterdam finally secured a place in France the next year. Their focus will now turn to compete against the best at RWC 2023.

Lemoine was named head coach of Los Teros in 2012. While his goal was to see Uruguay qualify for RWC 2015. A team that had already missed the first two games.

That goal came in a tense scene in the capital of Montevideo, with Uruguay knocking out Russia after the most dramatic replay.

Lemoine’s performance in Uruguay was extraordinary. But his achievement in leading Chile to the first Rugby World Cup was perhaps even more impressive. Rugby World Cup 2023 fans can buy France Rugby World Cup Tickets from our website.

Who and where to look out for in the final qualifiers for Rugby World Cup 2023

Who and where to look out for in the final qualifiers for Rugby World Cup 2023

In the World Rugby Men’s Ranking, powered by Capgemini, three teams are ranked between 19th and 22nd. While another team is outside the top 30, securing final qualification for the 2023 Rugby World Cup. The battle for the seats is already underway. Rugby World Cup fans can buy Rugby World Cup 2023 Tickets from our website.

The United States seem to be the favourite based on history and rankings. But Portugal is fast becoming a force in the European Rugby Championship under inspiring head coach Patrice Lagisquet.

Hong Kong will feel that anything is possible after overcoming obstacles
Hong Kong will feel that anything is possible after overcoming obstacles

Like Portugal, Kenya will look to its strengths with a fast handball game. While Hong Kong will feel that anything is possible after overcoming obstacles.

Here’s your basic guide to the final qualifiers.

When is the last qualifier?

It will take place in Dubai from November 6-18, 2022. The three-match days are: Sunday, November 6, Saturday, November 12 and Friday, November 18

What are the prices?

The team with the most match points at the end of the round-robin will receive the 20th and final ticket to the 2023 Rugby World Cup. Group C seats await winners, along with Wales, Australia, Georgia and Fiji.

How did they get to this point?

Portugal took the lead in securing a place in the final qualifying rounds by finishing third in the combined ranking of the 2021 and 2022 European Rugby Championships.

Kenya joined Os Lobos after Simbas defeated Namibia in second place in the 2022 African Cup of Rugby in France on July 10.

Portugal follows the United States in 20th place

Where are the teams in the World Rugby Men’s Ranking powered by Capgemini?

The United States is the 19th best-ranked team in the Capgemini-backed World Rugby Men’s Rankings, although they are only one spot better than their worst ever. Heading into the final Rugby World Cup, the Eagles climbed to a staggering 13th place.

Portugal follows the United States in 20th place, while Hong Kong is two places behind in 22nd place. Kenya is the lowest placed team in the 33rd final qualifying round.

Which team is in good shape?

Based on the results alone, it’s hard to say that both teams are going to Dubai with their momentum.

Portugal, however, stood out with a shiny, attacking rugby. Os Lobos tied Georgia 25-25 to end Lelos’ 20-game winning streak. Since then, only the Netherlands has been defeated in their five matches. But from losses to Romania (37-27), Spain (33-28), Italy (38-31), and Argentina fifteen (52-35). Many positive points can be drawn from Georgia and Georgia (23-14). Os Lobos has an average of 31 points in 2022.

Since the 2019 Rugby World Cup, the United States has won just 3 out of 10 matches. Chile (22-21), Uruguay (19-16) and Canada (38-16). The past four-year cycle has been disappointing after qualifying for the 2019 Rugby World Cup as the Americas 1 team.

The scope of the table has not been expanded for Hong Kong and Kenya. Hong Kong played just two games in the past three years, beating South Korea to win the 2022 Asian Rugby Championship. Before losing to Tonga in the Asia-Pacific 1 play-off. Kenya meanwhile defeated Uganda (42-7) and Algeria (36-33) before losing 36-0 to Namibia in the 2022 Africa Rugby Cup final.

Unforgettable matchups?

Although they are well-known opponents in the HSBC World Rugby Sevens series. The final round of qualifying will see the first meeting of the United States and Kenya at this level.

By contrast, the United States and Hong Kong have already played against each other seven times before. Making it the most frequent match-up in the final qualifiers, with the Asian champions leading 4-3.

To qualify for the 2023 Rugby World Cup, Portugal must make history as they have never beaten an opponent. The Os Lobos have lost to the United States twice, but not since 2010. When they were defeated by Kenya 41-15 and Hong Kong 16-13 in 2015.

Has a team played in the Rugby World Cup before?

The United States has the richest Rugby World Cup pedigree and has played in every tournament – South Africa in 1995. The Eagles comfortably defeated Spain in their last “rematch” to advance to the 2003 Rugby World Cup with a total score of 120 -26.

Portugal is the only other three teams to appear on the game’s biggest stage – at the 2007 Rugby World Cup – and hopes to book a return to France. Where they will have the support of a large ex-pat community.

What happened to the last qualifying finals?

Kenya and Hong Kong took part in the final qualifiers in Marseille in November 2018, with Canada and Germany also taking part.

Kenya, which lost three games by an average of 36 points, is Hong Kong’s only casualty. Canada won all three matches to win the competition and qualify for the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

Rugby World Cup: France are ‘favourites’ according to Jerome Kaino, but All Blacks remain in the lead

The back row played 81 games for the All Blacks and was a crucial part of their consecutive World Cup wins in 2011 and 2015. However, Kaino played the second half of his career in France, helping Toulouse from a slump to domestic and European champions.

Earlier this year, they won their first Six Nations Grand Slam. Since 2010 and dominated Ian Foster’s men in an international match in November 2021.

Home advantage

“Les Bleus is my favorite,” Kaino told Midi Olympique. “Because of the rugby matches they play, the confidence they have built from their recent success and the fact that the game is played domestically. The French supporters have a strong ability to lead their team.”

Kaino has also seen young Toulouse players grow into world-class players, including the duo of Antoine Dupont and Romain Ntamack.

“Antoine Dupont is unbelievable. I respect his composure under pressure. Romain Ntamack too. They are so calm,” he said.

“Whether it’s a round of 14 final or a chance encounter, they all have the same approach. They are very professional. Every week they want to improve.”

Next year, New Zealand hopes to challenge the French at the World Cup when they compete in the pool.

The All Blacks have had a tough year, but Kaino isn’t worried about their recent troubles.

“The current results are not up to our standards, but I’m not worried about it. I know the talent of the players,” he said.

“I distinguish Ian Foster too. I played under him for a long time and I know he is a very good technical man. Sam Cane is also a very good captain.

Foster’s reservation

Kaino said he was “delighted” to see Foster remain as head coach during the World Cup and believes their efforts could be beneficial in the long term. Rugby World Cup fans can buy France Rugby World Cup Tickets from our website.

“The players must be disappointed, but I know they will find a solution to come back. It’s been a difficult period for the fans, but I think black people will come out stronger,” he added. “Maybe even before the World Cup.”

“There was a lot of dialogue between the organizing committee, the Paris authorities and the wider government.

“We believe we can learn lessons from this, and we also believe we have a great safety plan, the spectator experience plan at the Stade de France.”

‘I felt no symptoms’: Vakatawa declares shock retirement

French midfielder Virimi Vakatawa has stated that he will immediately retire from rugby at the age of 30. The rugby world was shocked when the 32-year-old centre was suspended from the national team on Monday.

Medical Council of the Ligue Nationale de Rugby. Vakatawa is now holding a media conference at the Racing 92 training centre in Paris, explaining that a heart problem was the reason he had to stop racing abruptly.

“I didn’t feel any symptoms or anything like that,” said the New Zealand-born Parisian club legend who came to France from Fiji as a teenager. “

“I have discussed it with the doctor. I have no damage and everything is fine. I will not stay far from here to wake up.”

“I’m 17 and I don’t regret leaving my family at all. I know it’s hard. I always tell young people they’re lucky to be here. Fijians are still coming and I want to help them I am so grateful to have so many people by my side.”

Speaking at Plessis-Robinson’s media briefing on Tuesday. Racing 92 team doctor Sylvain Blanchard explained that it was too risky for Vakatawa to continue racing.

“He had to stop his career in France for cardiac reasons. Heart defects were discovered before the 2019 World Cup in Japan. This abnormality unrelated to rugby has been monitored, but it is a developing condition. The risk has become too great.”

Rugby tournament director Laurent Travers added: “The hardest part was waiting too long. The hardest thing was announcing Virimi, then to the whole team. We know his role in the ’92 and the French rugby team. Importance Virimi is there still and will now be on the sidelines. Virimi will have to settle in a different way, with rugby but in a different way. We’ve talked a lot with him and his goal is to stay in France. He hopes to join Racing 92 stay.”

The media briefing was a club event, but the French rugby world was shocked by the news of Vakatawa’s shocking retirement, with even French national team manager Fabien Galthie appearing in person to give the now-retired midfielder a message. “I want to thank Racing 92 for bringing me here today,” said the tearful test coach.

“I want to join Virimi, it’s special, so I’m very moved. Their fate means he will play his last two matches against Les Bleus in Japan. We will try to get over it because we know it can happen at a high-level movement. But we’re still going all out shock retirement.

“I was touched when he called me on Monday. Virimi has made many children’s dreams come true. He was a key figure in our adventure and our history when we took over the French team. He was an example of his life. We must tell our kids to enjoy all their games like it’s the last game.”

Rugby World Cup 2023: A year to go and still completely unpredictable

Rugby World Cup 2023: A year to go and still completely unpredictable

A lot can change in a 12-month period. Just ask Boris Johnson. Or actually Vladimir Putin. In politics, as well as in rugby union, there is very little responsibility. If someone had predicted a year ago that the yellow-and-blue Ukrainian flag would fly in every British city, or that Liz Truss would be Britain’s next prime minister, they would have quietly escorted out of the building. Rugby World Cup fans can buy Rugby World Cup 2023 Tickets from our website.

That’s why the world’s leading rugby nation is not allowed to make any assumptions a year after the 2023 Rugby World Cup. Now you could support France in beating New Zealand on the opening night of the match.

But if there was a premature French injury or a Paris monsoon, would you put your castle on it? It is called the truss effect. Because if the past two months have shown anything, it’s that the world of rugby is rarely so volatile or predictable.

Top-level margins have also been reduced to barely visible. Scotland, England, Ireland and Wales have all beaten at least one country in the southern hemisphere in the past two months. But how much does this prove? Argentina had just beaten New Zealand for a week before losing by 50 points. The Wallabies ate South African toast in Adelaide and reduced it to a mashed avo in Sydney seven days later and much more.

RWC 2023

Also, remember that South Africa’s twisty run to the title in 2019 culminated in a win over England in Yokohama. A year ago, under the same management and a similar lineup, it was a very different story. In the rugby tournament, the Springboks were defeated by Australia and Argentina, ultimately losing as many matches as they won.

When Siya Kolisi held up the Webb Ellis trophy, this small detail was rarely mentioned. The same would be the case if another team in the southern hemisphere won the 2023 title. The Boks, New Zealand, Australia and Argentina have all had their pessimistic days, but champagne or two in France cannot be ruled out.

Why is it so? Because the leaderboards have never been tighter, winning seven matches in a rally has become harder than ever. Take England, which shares Argentina, Japan, Samoa and Chile in a supposedly comfortable swimming pool. Which version of Pumas will appear? Are fighters so high in Christchurch booked their first Test win in New Zealand? Or something less scary? Rugby World Cup 2023 fans can buy rwc Tickets from our website.

The simple theory is that if England beat Argentina at Twickenham in November, they will most likely play the same game in Marseille in September. Arguments failed to convince the enthusiastic Agustin Creevy, the former Pumas captain who still hopes for the World Cup at 38 years old.

Agustin Creevy

“It’s not the same,” he said resolutely, explaining why France’s autumn international with the World Cup in the south was markedly different from the one in south-west London.”

“When you play in the World Cup, you have a lot of emotions in your body that you don’t have in a ‘normal’ test match. The winning team will be the one that has the most control over it. An interesting game.”

Creevy says it’s about more than just performance. With both hemispheres close, he truly believes Argentina will be a stronger proposition a year from now. “We’re going to get better and better,” said the Irish prostitute in London.

“We have a lot to develop, but the young guys we have are great. We’re not perfect – we have a lot of work to do in Scrum – but we want to be the best version of ourselves. I’m optimistic. We just have to be in ourselves believe and believe.”

With Johnny Sexton on the pitch, Ireland could be a dream come true
With Johnny Sexton on the pitch, Ireland could be a dream come true

Rugby World Cup Johnny Sexton

To be fair, family associations would say something similar. With Johnny Sexton on the pitch, Ireland could be a dream come true after their stunning New Zealand tour. Imagine Wales with the best players or Scotland turns the promise into sustainable performance or England has finally settled for their best and most effective combination. They are ranked fifth in the world and should be looking for additional gear this fall.

A week before he was in Ellis Park, Eddie Jones sat in Ellis Park to watch the Boks take on the All Blacks, which will remind Eddie Jones to outflank the two four world cups.

In that sense, England’s duel with the All Blacks in November will be a useful barometer of their current standings. It’s impossible for Jones not to notice the rise of Samisoni Taukei’aho as a frontline hooker in New Zealand, the lingering influence of Ardie Savea or the attacking threat of Rieko Ioane, who looked deadly against the Pumas in Hamilton. No frills, straighter and more dynamic running… even the old-fashioned New Zealand teams look good when they have a forefoot to play.

France 2023

However, no one can be sure that France 2023 will go as planned. Old-fashioned luck always comes into play, especially when it comes to keeping key players healthy. Nobody wants to see a French team without Antoine Dupont and Romain Ntamack, as well as the great Racing 92 centre Virimi Vakatawa, who unfortunately will probably already be a non-competitor.

High-profile shakeups at the top can also be transformative. Joe Schmidt and Michael Cheika are back on the dance floor, hoping to miss their former employers. Others, including Jones, have put things off. The only sure thing? The Rugby World Cup 2023 will be an event like no other. Rugby World Cup fans can buy rwc 2023 Tickets from our website.

Three countries were banned from Rugby World Cup
Three countries were banned from Rugby World Cup

Three countries were banned from Rugby World Cup

Romania is the last country to leave early when we look back at three other countries that have been excluded from the most prestigious rugby tournament.

#1. South Africa (1987 & 1991)

World Rugby prohibits South Africa from participating in all international competitions until apartheid (a policy or system of segregation or discrimination based on race) ends.

As a result, the Springboks were unable to compete in the 1987 and 1991 Rugby World Cups.

After the abolition of the legal mechanism of apartheid in the early 1990s, South Africa rejoined the International Rugby Union in 1992 and would host the 1995 Championship, which they famously won.

#2. Spain (2019 and 2023)

Spain has been kicked out of the 2023 Rugby World Cup and will be replaced by Romania after Los Leones was found to have sent an unqualified player, allegedly using a fake passport.

At the qualification. Spain reached the World Cup for the first time since 1999 after a dramatic victory over Portugal in March but was deducted 10 points and eliminated from next year’s tournament in France.

#3. Russia (2023)

World Rugby has refused to heed Russia’s call to lift a moratorium imposed on the country after its invasion of Ukraine.
