Ireland beat the All Blacks 16-9 :clap:. A very special day for our sport! I'm still bouncing round the room :d

First time since 1995 that a team from the northern hemisphere has kept the All Blacks try-less in a match. That stat blew my mind. Just shows how awesome the All Blacks are.

Watched the second half on TV. Looks like Irish D forced some key stops to prevent at least two try drives from NZ. I have no idea how strong the NZ team was, maybe they send some back-ups for this Tour?

So with today's 27-10 victory against Hong Kong in Marseille, Canada becomes the 20th and final nation to book their place at next year's 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan. In doing so, Canada maintain their record of appearing at every single edition of the Rugby World Cup :yes.

 

And we now know the make-up of each of the Pools for the World Cup. There are no debutants, with each qualified nation having made at least 3 previous appearances at the World Cup. The notable absence is Romania, who will miss the World Cup for the very first time having appeared in each of the previous 8 editions.

Pool C is the group of death this time but Pool D is very interesting too.

 

 

Pool B
 :NZL New Zealand
 :RSA South Africa
 :ITA Italy
 :NAM Namibia
 :CAN Canada
Pool A
 :IRL Ireland
 :SCO Scotland
 :JPN Japan
 :RUS Russia
 :SAM Samoa

 

 

Pool D
 :AUS Australia
 :WAL Wales
 :GEO Georgia
 :FIJ Fiji
 :URU Uruguay
Pool C
 :ENG England
 :FRA France
 :ARG Argentina
 :USA United States
 :TGA Tonga
