2019 rugby world cup : 8 teams made their way to the quarter finals but only one will win
20 teams came to Japan to play the 2019 rugby world cup. The pool stage is over now and only 8 teams qualified.
The big teams are still there, including the current world champion the All Blacks from New Zealand. The two other big teams from the South also qualified, South Africa and Australia. But Argentina failed in the “pool of death” as France and England beat them.
From Europe, 4 teams qualified. France and England as previously said, but also Wales and Ireland. Italy and Scotland were kicked out during the pool stage.
The surprise of this world cup came from the hosting country, Japan. They were in a though pool with Ireland and Scotland. But they were able to beat everyone and finished at the first place of their pool.
Now serious games will start. From 8 teams, only 4 will pursue. Then only 2 will remain for the final game. And only 1 will be world champion.
We guess these games will be very exciting as we get closer to the cup final.
Take a guess and find out who will win the 2019 Rugby world cup ?
The final of the 2016 Rugby H-Cup will see the Saracens facing the Racing 92. Who will be the European Champion ?
On May 14th 2016, the rugby union H-Cup final will take place in Lyon, France. Racing 92, french team near Paris and its star Dan Carter will face the Saracens, english team near London.
In quarter final, Racing 92 defeated the RC Toulon team, who was the H-Cup champion three times in a row in 2013, 2014 and 2015. Then, in semi final, Racing 92 went to the Leicester Tigers stadium to get their ticket to the final game by winning the home team 16-19.
The Saracens beated english teams on their way to the final. First they defeated Northampton in quarter final and then the Wasps in semi final.
The final game is going to take place soon. Both teams want the cup so badly that we guess it will be quite a game. Players are ready to give everything they have to be able to lift the cup at the end of the day. But despite all the efforts, only one team will be crowned champion !

September will see the start of the 2015 Rugby World Cup. New Zealand won the 2011 Rugby World Cup on their home soil. Will they be able to win the tournament twice in succession? Or will the northern hemisphere teams be able to use the “home” advantage to overcome the traditionally strong southern hemisphere teams.
Pool A is considered by many to be the Group of Death, how will the outcome of this group affect the tournament? South Africa are strong favourites for Pool B, although second place finish is up for discussion.
