2015 RWC draw,,,,
December 02, 2012, 21:57:02

from what ive been able to gather, the 2015 RWC draw will look something like this,,,

pool A
All Blacks
england
argentina
fiji
????

pool B
Springboks
ireland
italy
canda
????

pool C
wallabies
wales
tonga
japan
????

the No1 ranked team in the world generally has the hardest pool, its very fair that way IMO, but while england and the Boks will provide a great challenge, im sure the All Blacks can continue their record of winning all their pool matches in the RWC, the only team to do so.

 

official 2015 RWC draw should be announced in eng sometime tomorrow.

Yeah, that looks a little better. If it does pan out that way then NZ are going to be in a pretty tough group, because England and Argentina could possibly both beat the AB's, and Figi are also not an easy team to play, AB's will beat them for sure, but they are very physical and could cause a few injuries.

I saw these updated provisional RB rankings

 

Provisional latest IRB World Rankings

(Official rankings will be published at 12:00 UK time on Monday 3 December, on irb.com)

1 NEW ZEALAND - 90.08
2 SOUTH AFRICA - 86.94
3 AUSTRALIA - 86.87
4 FRANCE - 85.07
5 ENGLAND - 83.90
6 IRELAND - 80.22
7 SAMOA - 78.71
8 ARGENTINA - 78.71
9 WALES - 78.39
10 ITALY - 76.24
11 TONGA - 76.10
12 SCOTLAND - 75.83

I am very pleased we will have no Islanders sides in our group. Their main aim is to eliminate ab oppostion by head hunting etc. We have had two of these sides in our group for the last two WC s and possibly longer. Samao shou ld be in agains tthe abs where he ycan return the compliment.

Sad to see Wales implode.

Nice to see abs drop a couple of points! We are closing in.

Still a pretty huge gap between us and the AB's, but I guess there is nothing wrong with positive thinking. Yeah, I always get nervous when we have any of  the Pacific Isalnders in our group, the games are pretty much a foregone conclusion, but injuries are almost sure to follow.

Sasue

What I do know is that the main teams in the various pools will be as indicated by you - biut qw do not know how the rest of the allocations are made.   As far as I know the next four teams (5 to 8)  on the log is allocated to the pools on the issue of drawing of lots.  After that the process is repeated on the same basis for the teams ranked 9 to 12  on the log.

I may be wrong on this one - but if I am right there is no way we can say how the lower-rated teams will fearure in the Pools.
