World News – AU – Wallabies meet RWC on Wales, Fiji around 2023


. .

History will repeat itself at the 2023 Rugby World Cup for Australia, which will face Wales and Fiji in their pool for the third tournament in a row after receiving a favorable draw.

The Wallabies, who finished sixth in the world at last year’s World Cup in Japan and lost in the quarter-finals, could have been thrown together in a pool with New Zealand, England or South Africa for the Paris flagship project.

Instead, they face Wales for the fourth time in five tournaments (9. ) and Fiji (11. ) as well as two other not yet qualified nations.

Wales beat the Wallabies in Japan but have struggled since reaching the last four of this tournament and lost seven of their last nine Tests.

But Wallabies coach Dave Rennie, who has had one win, three draws and two defeats since joining Michael Cheika after the World Cup, knows that there will be « so much water under the bridge » by 2023.

« We’re very excited from the World Cup perspective, there is still a long way to go, but it makes it a bit of a reality now, » he said.

« There’s no such thing as a simple pool we’ve all talked about. If you look at the three teams that we know are confirmed in this pool, they are all very tough.

« We’re every three years away, our teams will change a lot, different people will get through and I can imagine that in three years we will all get better. « . « 

Three-time winners and perennial favorites New Zealand face hosts France but both teams will be confident of moving forward as the third seed after Italy landed.

The Springboks have been grouped with Ireland and Scotland while 2019 runner-up England faces the potentially difficult double challenge of Argentina and Japan.

Sowing for the RWC was routinely set three years later, but this time, given the coronavirus disrupting the international calendar, the organizers decided to use the leaderboard late last year – four years before the tournament.

Therefore, Wales, who were beaten as a semi-finalist in 2019 but finished ninth, was one of the top four players, while France, hosts and now world no. 4, were placed in the second stage.

The RWC with 20 teams will take place from 8. September to 21. October in nine cities. The final will take place in Paris.

Eight qualifiers for the 10. The edition of the tournament has not yet been determined and will not be completed until November 2022.

« The COVID-19 crisis is terrible. In 2023 we want to offer what France can offer: the French way of life – friendliness, gastronomy, parties and culture. «
