Women’s Rugby World Cup 2022 Pool Tables

In Pool A, New Zealand secured top spot with a 57-0 victory over Scotland at Northland Events Centre and go through to the knockout stages as the top seeds. They will meet pool opponents Wales again in the quarter-finals.

Australia are confirmed as runners-up after they beat Wales 13-7 in the first game of match day five and they will meet England in the last eight.

Scotland have been knocked out after that heavy defeat by the Black Ferns.

Canada ensured they would finish as second seeds for the quarter-finals with a bonus-point 29-14 win over the USA. That put them top of the table in Pool B with the maximum 15 points.

The USA still progress to the quarter-finals as one of the best third-placed teams while Italy took the runners-up spot with a hard-fought 21-8 win over Japan in their final pool game.

It will be Canada v USA again in the quarter-finals while Italy will take on France.


England became the first team to reach the quarter-finals when they beat France 13-7 in Whangarei last weekend and they confirmed their place amongst the top three seeds with a 75-0 win over South Africa. The Red Roses will face the Wallaroos in the quarters.

France are also through after they wrapped up their pool campaign by beating Fiji 44-0 to confirm their own place in the last eight, where they will play Italy.

Fiji and South Africa are out of the tournament.
