No, it isn't disrespectful. They can gain respect and prove themselves by being competitive next week and being more competitive in repechage.

Okay, I've done a little bit of digging, and these are the results of games played between the Repechage teams in the current RWC cycle, Russia are also included, for all teams have faced them. Germany's results without WRA players are excluded.

2015 (Post RWC):

Hong Kong 12-31 Russia

2016:

Russia 46-20 Germany
Canada 46-21 Russia
Hong Kong 0-27 Russia
Kenya 34-10 Hong Kong

2017:

Germany 25-52 Russia
Kenya 19-19 Hong Kong
Kenya 29-30 Germany
Kenya 34-43 Hong Kong
Hong Kong 13-15 Russia
Hong Kong 40-30 Kenya
Kenya 10-31 Russia (N)

2018:

Canada (A) 20-43 Russia

Canada's had a far higher level of general matches than the other three, and the other three are extremely even so I can't see much other than Canada coming through the middle, perhaps picking up a loss on the way.

This going to be a great mini-tournament I think. Highlight of November for me after NZ v Ireland ...... Although to be honest it would be a much stronger tournament if it was Spain/Romania rather than Portugal.

France as a neutral venue is a good idea, is a big country with decent record of turning up as neutrals to watch.

The actual match venues chosen may make or break the feel of the tournament though. Probably needs to be at the bigger venues of D2 clubs in the south-western heartlands? Traditional rugby towns now 'starved' of T14 rugby. Like the 3 venues in use currently for the U20 JWC (Carcassone, Bezier, (although Perpignan will be back in T14?) plus also Biarritz, Bayonne. Grenoble or Vannes would also be good choices outside of the south-west. One of the 2 smaller rugby venues in Paris would work as well.


The venue has been confirmed as the 5000 seater Stade Pierre Delort in Marseille.

I like what you have put together there, but it doesn´t really serve justice to the research as all games have different situations with player release / preparation / venue. The exciting thing of the upcoming Rep. is that all teams seem to be (at first glance) in a similar level, with not that many thrashings between each other, and I´m hoping they ALL get their BEST TEAM AVAILABLE.

Canada will indeed come as a stronger candidate for various reasons, but most importantly, regardless of their current form they have RWC experience.

They also had to go to uncontested scrums in the second half for Canada's safety.

From the La Depeche report (https://www.ladepeche.fr/article/2018/0 ... le-co.html):

'Alas, the Canadian opposition was particularly weak at the front, so that after a closed scrum, where the Canadians were unable to cope, Mr. Poite returned to the posts for a second penalty try.'

And from the (damning) Rugbyrama report (https://www.rugbyrama.fr/rugby/top-14/2 ... tory.shtml):

'The OC fell on a really harmless opponent and the Tarnais public could fully enjoy the return of the champions who had not played for two months'

'This Canadian national team will have to show a lot more to at least make an illusion at the World Cup. "In the second half, we were even asked to stop pushing the scrum. In fact, it is true that the opposition was quite weak. There wasn't much rhythm in the game, that's for sure, but it's classic for a restart match.' From the CO coach, so it looks like Canada were just getting utterly pummelled in the scrum.

Hong Kong have never qualified for a rugby world cup final tournament. Also will be debuting if victorious are, Germany and Kenya. For Kenya to be anywhere near contention they must overcome a strong dominant Namibia side. Canada and Namibia are the only teams in the equation with world cup experience.

Really hoping for a Kenya win today and then either Germany or Hong Kong to win the repechage so we have 2 new teams at the World Cup.
