Ireland could face the women’s Rugby World Cup group with the United States and Canada if it qualifies for the tournament hosted by the Black Fern next year.

With European qualifiers postponed due to the epidemic, Ireland must compete with Scotland and Italy or Russia or Spain to become the last team from the continent to participate in the 12-team competition.

Should they reach the tournament, Ireland will avoid the top three teams of the 2017 edition, which was hosted by IRFU.

There is still no date for the European qualifiers, which were due to take place before Christmas.

The tournament, scheduled for September and October, will be held in Wangari and Auckland, with the 60,000-seat Eden Park scheduled to host the competition’s opening match, in addition to the semi-finals and final..
