Qualifying for the women's world cup? Don't make me laugh. They might make Japan play Fiji, and Spain take on the bottom 6N team and call that a qualification process.

There might be something involving South Africa and Kenya as well. And remember for 2017 Scotland missed the WRWC losing to Spain. There is room for something that looks like a Qualy.

They could give Rugby Europe one direct spot and do a Repechage with:

- Bottom team of the 6N
- Asia runners up
- Africa best (or RE runners up)
- Oceania best

There will be a European qualifier involving more than one W6N side, or at least this is what was promised to Spain with our staff saying test matches from this season and ranking will be key for seeding.

Well, it would be cool to have Spain playing all Wales, Italy and Scotland in a WRWC Qualy.

I imagine it would be more like bottom two W6N sides and top two REWC sides with highest seed hosting. But let's wait until official confirmation, our officials were convinced WRWC was going to be in Australia and we all saw what happened.

Well, England, France and Ireland are already qualified for the 2021 WRWC. It leaves Wales, Italy and Scotland from the 6N.

Top 7 from 2017 qualified:

Europe: England, France, Wales
N America: Canada, USA
Oceania: Australia, New Zealand

In Europe that leaves Ireland, Italy and Scotland from the 6N, and Spain - plus potentially Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, Belgium, Czechia, Finland and Russia - competing for three places.

It is maybe interesting that the 2017 qualification was partly based on the 2015 and 2016 W6N - so if the same process was to be used WR really should (surely?) have announced that next year's W6N (and 2020) would be part of the process, but they have not (yet) publically said anything. So maybe something slightly different is planned for Europe?

It has been said that next year's Oceania championship will be part of the process, so at a guess the winner, plus at least one team from Asian championship (maybe two) and an African team, will be playing off for maybe two places. Only Africa currently lacks a women's 15s championship but Rugby Afrique have said it is the intention to organise one at some date in the future - maybe in 2020?

Yunque at FER website: "This year's European Championship won't qualify for anything, unlike next season where champions will earn a spot for RWC qualfiers. We still don't know if repechage will be strictly European, with European champions and three teams from W6N still not qualified for WRWC (Ireland, Scotland and Italy) or whether it will be a global repechage with 8 teams, but we will fight so for seeding purposes World Rankings are taken into account and we want to reach that stage at the highest rank possible, so a victory against Scotland is key for our goals".
