Considering none of the 2 probable teams from Europe played the other European ones in last 15 years I don't see the issue.


We could move that group to Europe. Oh wait, Japan is also in it :D

Look at the world ranking in July. Teams ranked 1-10 have to play one team from 11-20 (they don't play in a regular competition) away the next year. 11-20 play 21-30 away and so on. Yes, it really is that simple.

Question: in the European zone, what is the tiebraker? The matches between both teams tied or points (or tries) average?

2. Equal number of points at the end of Competition:

If two or more teams have same number of points the best ranked will be:

The Union having more number of match points in the games played between the tied Unions
The Union having best difference between points for and points against in the games played between the tied teams
The Union having scored more tries in the games played between the tied Unions
The Union having scored more points in the games played between the tied Unions.
The Union having best difference between points for and points against in all pool games.
The Union having scored more tries in all pool games
The Union having scored more points in all pool games

Unless I'm very much mistaken, today REC results put Romania a BP win away (OK, against Georgia in Georgia...) from an absurd situation: winning back-to-back European titles and risking to miss next RWC.

But yeah, there's nothing at all to fix regarding RWC qualifying berths.

Romania will leave both cups in Tbilisi. Lelos are waiting for this particular match almost 1 year.

10+ points for Georgia

Europe

The Rugby Europe Championship still has two possible entrants but Romania have played all of their games in the championship but must rely on Spain not winning both of their games remaining to automatically qualify for Japan.

Spain need eight points or more to qualify as their head to head with Romania is better so if they tie on points, head to head will offer us the answer to the equation sort of speak.

Update: 12/3/18

Spain wins at the weekend and they qualify automatically.




The runner up of the championship will book their place in a play off against round 5 winners Portugal who beat Czechia 45-12 and that also doubled a league match also.

The winner of the Portugal play off then will see them play Samoa in the Europe/Oceania play off match which will be a home and away affair in June.(The second leg will be in Apia, Samoa). Whilst the loser qualifies for the repechage which I will talk about later.








Asia

There are three teams for possible qualification from this continent as the ARC (Asia Rugby Championship) kicks off next month which sees teams like Hong Kong, South Korea and Malaysia fight it out for a play off place against Oceania cup winners, Tahiti for a berth in the repechage.





Africa

Six teams in the 2018 Gold Cup will contest the tournament in the hope of winning it to qualify automatically with the runner up hitting up the repechage.

Kenya, Morocco, Namibia, Tunisia, Uganda and Zimbabwe (former Rhodesia) are the teams whom are able to secure a place in next years world cup.

Starts in June the Gold Cup.


Oceania


Tahiti won the Oceania Cup in 2017 to guarantee themselves a place for a play off against the winners of the 2018 Asia Rugby Championships.



Repechage

This is a mini tournament and the last step for qualifying for Japan for the teams who didn't win their main championships. Unlike in previous repechage tournaments where there was a semi final and a final, this time round it will be a round robin league where each team plays one game and the winner of the league qualifies for Japan 2019.

Imagine if rugby were a big thing in the Balkans. THEN I think we'd see some real fights. Remove kebab and all.

@Canalina, what info do we have about the repechage tournament? Is it round robin? Is it all in one country?

I don't have any certain info. As we all, I suppose it will be a round robin in one only country.
It has to be played within november, this is one of the few known details about

On 19 May it rather would be GER v (probably) POR for REC 2019 berth

If it's all in one country it won't be round robin probably. It would make no sense for Romania to play Canada twice in some other country

Probably will be a tournament with 4 teams hosted in France.

2 semis -> winners in the final.

I think it's more likely to be a small, single robin championship where each team plays the other teams once and whoever has the most points goes to the RWC.

I think it's more or less the definition of "round robin".
A round robin doesn't implicate necessarily home & away matches, as far as I know

Haha iul, better late than never! :lol:

I'm sure it will be round robin over a week in one country. Where, who knows but I think it will either be the Asian representative if they make it past Tahiti, given this is an Asian host RWC, or if not WR will probably do as they have in the past for playoffs and hold it in the country that is the highest ranked of the 4 participating countries when all 4 become known, subject to logistical & security matters. I'm sure you'd rather Romania get past Samoa if Spain wins in Brussels rather than going to the "last chance bazaar" repechage, but if you do end up in the repechage, and WR does hold it in the highest ranked nation, you might end up seeing this tournament in Bucharest in October/November. Who knows, home advantage might still help the Oaks get to Japan yet ;)

AFAIK the Repechage will be on Hong Kong... It was said before but they are probably waiting Hong Kong to win the Asian qualy
