This year, the Rugby World Cup will be held in Japan. There are 6 Rugby World Cup 2019 teams and all of them will be gunning for the gold. It is pretty wide open as there are favorites and there are dark horses. The past two tournaments were won by New Zealand and there is no reason to believe they won’t win it again this year. They have almost the same roster intact plus the same coaching staff. Their opponents are much more prepared this year though. They have a huge target on their backs and they know it.
How Ireland is Too Strong for 2019 RWC?
Ireland is coming in strong as the third-ranked team in the world so they can’t be taken lightly. However, they have recently lost to some lower ranked teams this year. Thus, they should step their game up a notch so they can show everyone why they were ranked that high. Each sport is a toss-up between several teams and it would be hard to imagine Ireland not being one of them.
Wales Team Preview
One country that has Ireland’s number is Wales as they recently beat them. In fact, they have such an impressive winning record against them so Ireland fears theme every time they face each other. Due to the number of impressive victories Wales has garnered, they are currently considered the second best team next to New Zealand. They recently won a Grand Slam so a lot of analysts think they have a lot of momentum heading into the Rugby World Cup. In fact, the fact that it will be held in Japan will hardly matter to them. If they set their minds on the tournament, it is going to be pretty hard to stop them.
England in Confident to win the Rugby World Cup 2019
The recently concluded Six Nations tournament saw England finishing as a runner-up. That will definitely boost their confidence coming into the Rugby World Cup. They lost a pretty close game and that will not deter them in their mission to win the tournament. There are times when they lose games that they had already won. One good example would be their game against Scotland when they jumped out to a big lead. Good for them, they have enough time to talk about what went wrong in that game so they could regain their focus heading into the Rugby World Cup.
Scotland didn’t show much determination in the Six Nations tournament. However, they still deserve a mention as one of the teams that could win it all. They’re one of the Rugby World Cup 2019 teams that not many people are considering to win. However, it would be wrong to underestimate this team as they have all the tools to win. They just need the right amount of encouragement as their recent losses have shown. Also, their team has suffered a bunch of injuries. Injuries are a part of this game but that doesn’t mean the injured players won’t come back. If their injured players will come back in time for the stsart of the Rugby World Cup, it is going to be very interesting.
