Even if France is the clear favorite to win in 2019, the spectacular international matches in the autumn have given us cause to believe that the Rugby World Cup in 2023 will be the most entertaining in history.
A few won. France, Ireland, and South Africa have a chance to win. Also competing are New Zealand and Australia.
Due to losing three title matches, the French couldn’t win the World Cup.
In 2007, Argentina beat France twice and finished third.
Coach Fabien Galthie has helped France strengthen their defensive performance while maintaining many of their great offensive players. If Antoine Dupont and Romain Ntamack were injured, the team’s development would be slowed.
France’s first Triple Crown came following a 35-17 win against Japan on the final day of the year. This follows France’s wins against Australia and South Africa earlier this month. 2022 Six Nations Grand Slam winner France. 13 straight wins versus the opposition.
8th in France “We need to work harder and maintain doing what we did this fall,” says Gregory Alldritt. Need cite: Not a good turn of events. The word says we must maintain our minds clean and not act like someone else.
Despite playing outside the fall window and being short on players, South Africa beat England 27-13 at Twickenham towards the end of the year.
A fresh set of wings helped Kurt-Lee Arendse score his sixth try in as many games, and the powerful Springbok pack let the backs shine.
The South African skipper said “the change isn’t that big,” but “we’re discovering openings we didn’t notice before.”
With their win over Australia this month, Ireland became the first side since England in 2002 to beat the All Blacks, the Springboks, and the Wallabies in the same calendar year.
Ireland has never reached the World Cup quarterfinals, whereas England won in 2003.
Irish beat Australia despite lacking having Jonathan Sexton. Andy Farrell said after the game, “We found a way,” and that this is what successful teams do when they aren’t playing well.
Owen Farrell, Farrell’s son, captained the side and guided them to their lone win in November against Japan.
Argentina beat them in their World Cup opener. They trailed New Zealand by 19 points with 10 minutes left in their second game, but they knotted it 25-25.
The road to the final is the same one England travelled to Japan. With wins over Australia and New Zealand, they reached the semifinals.
England coach Eddie Jones has guided his team to three World Cup finals. After Saturday’s encounter, he said, “I have a strategy for winning the World Cup, but it’s not linear.” He meant England’s route to become champions.
Despite tying England, New Zealand’s campaign failed. After losing to Ireland and Argentina, Coach Ian Foster was fired.
According to Foster, his side “played some fantastic rugby” and “in our perspective” should have won, but they didn’t in the closing 10 minutes. The loss against Scotland in early November was his first as coach.
Argentina thrashed England 30-29, but their 20-13 loss to Wales showed they still struggle to be consistent.
Even though Australia lost to Italy, the Wallabies were injured after five tests in the fall. Injuries kept the Wallabies from fielding a complete side against Wales.
Saturday, they were behind by 13 points with 58 minutes left, but they rallied 26 consecutive points to win 39-34.
The Australian national team’s coach, Dave Rennie, said, “We may have lost or won all five.”
After losing 13-12 to Georgia, Wales lost in Cardiff. This year, they won three tests out of 12 for a total of three wins. Not sure what will happen with Wayne Pivac.
