PRESS RELEASE (from Ghana Rugby Association)

Ghana Rugby To Bid For 2017 West Africa World Rugby Tournament

The Ghana Rugby Football Union (GRFU) has been invited to tender to host the Africa Rugby Cup 1D - West men’s 15s Rugby tournament between Ghana, Benin and Togo in April 2017.
...
The Africa Cup 1D - West 1 tournament forms part of World Rugby’s regional tournament structure designed to eventually decide who will participate in the Rugby World Cup. A win for Ghana will mean that Ghana Rugby will get promoted to the 1C level in Rugby, and continued success can see Ghana being given a shot at a Rugby World Cup spot.
...
“Countries who will be taking part in this year’s World Rugby men’s 15s tournament include Ghana, Benin, Togo, Mali, Niger, Burkina Faso, Nigeria, Côté d’Ivoire and Sénégal. The leg between Ghana, Benin and Togo form part of the continental encounters and media exposure will reach well beyond just Ghana,” Hanson said.

What I mean is that according to WR's website the African fourth division (that previously was called "2nd division") wasn't part of the Qualy!

And if it is now 1D it means there will be at least 5 divisions?

Its not a "free pass". Its a reorganisation of Div 1A which has been on the cards for some time now and Zim and Tunisia were included because they are the next 2 best nations outside Namibia, Kenya, Uganda and Senegal (According to the league system)

Unless you are worried the results won't go your way against them?

Im hoping any other team can qualify apart from Namibia. It would be nice to have a different African team for a change.

Should have been Zimbabwe in 2015 had they remembered to score one last try to qualify.

Kenya also needed just to draw with Zim or loose with less than 7 to qualify.

World Rugby and Afrique Rugby caught in complete failure. A new explanation was publish today for the RWC qualifying.
http://www.rugbyworldcup.com/qualifying/africa/bracket
Sorry guys, I still have the original one... Proving they changed the rules in the middle of the qualification. What a sign of disrespect...

Even the new one is not clear. It shows 6th from 1A must play in 1B in 2017... lol

Yes, I still can't understand completely their graphic. Why there's the flag of Mauritius and no one other? And that line going from 1B 2017 to the right seems meaning that the winner of 1B 2017 will qualify for the World Cup. It's incredible that no one of the website curators thinks that the page worths just a little effort and a little precision more

From what I can see, the top 5 nations in the 2017 Division 1A advance to 2018 Division 1A.
The sixth place nation is relegated to 2017 Division 1B ( making a 5 nation tournament).

The winner of 2017 Division 1B advances to the 2018 Play-off.

The Winner of 2018 Division 1A qualifies for 2019 Rugby World Cup as Africa 1.

The runner up of 2018 Division 1A advances to the 2018 Play-off against the winner of 2017 Division 1A.

The winner of the 2018 Play-off advances to the Repechage Tournament as Africa 2.

The confusion arises as this could lead to only 5 teams in the 2018 Division 1A.

These graphs are absolutely terrible. Why they can't have a written explanation along with the graph is beyond me.

Good change in the names of the division. Gold, Silver and Bronze is better than 1A, 1B and 1C.
