The countdown starts now! RWC 2023 kicks off in less than a year – and you can be there with Gullivers Sports Travel
Rugby World Cup France 2023 With Gullivers
Even if you’re one of the few who is not already excited, the coming weeks are sure to whet the appetite for Rugby World Cup 2023. There is a feast of November Internationals on the agenda in Europe over the coming weeks, including several fixtures that will also be played out during the pool stages in France.
There is less than a year until the tournament kicks off in Paris next September and countries now have only a limited number of matches to nail down their best team and game plans. By the end of the month, we should know which teams are looking like genuine contenders to lift the Webb Ellis Cup – and who is off the pace.
Ireland and France have led the way in 2022. France won a Six Nations Grand Slam for the first time in 12 years while Ireland’s historic series win in New Zealand saw them take top spot in the world rankings. Andy Farrell’s side kick off their November campaign by playing South Africa, the reigning world champions and their Pool B opponents, in Dublin and that should provide a good gauge of their Rugby World Cup chances.
France also face South Africa and another of the southern hemisphere ‘big three’ – Australia – as they look to continue developing the all-court game that has so tested rivals ahead of a home Rugby World Cup.
England and Wales face pool opponents this month, too. Eddie Jones’s side take on fellow Pool D teams Argentina and Japan before playing New Zealand and South Africa – all on back-to-back weekends at Twickenham. It should be a fascinating quartet of fixtures.
After facing New Zealand and Argentina, Wales meet Georgia and Australia, who are both in Pool C next year, as they look to build on the promise of their summer tour to South Africa.
Scotland aren’t playing any of their Pool B rivals but do have a taxing autumn, following up an October Test against Australia with matches against Fiji, New Zealand and Argentina. That last fixture will give the Scots a chance to avenge their last-minute third-Test series defeat in Argentina in July.
This November, as well as all the autumn Tests, we’ll find out which team will complete Pool C alongside Australia, Fiji, Georgia and Wales. The Final Qualification Tournament takes place in Dubai from 6 to 18 November, with Hong Kong, Kenya, Portugal and USA all vying to be the 20th team at RWC 2023.
So by the end of November we’ll know the complete line-up for France 2023 as well as which teams are in the best form less than a year out from the tournament. The countdown has well and truly begun – and if you want to be there to see the action, book with Gullivers Sports Travel.
