RWC Preview

Hope is well and truly over Australia after the Wallabies’ Rugby Championship which included a victory over their nemesis, the All Blacks in the Final. Sure it was dampened a bit after a poor Bledisloe Cup showing, but that match was played at the fortress known as Eden Park in New Zealand, and history says the All Blacks are beatable away from home, as seen in 2007 when surprisingly knocked out in the Quarter Finals.

It should also be noted that host nations and regional powers have a great record when it comes to the 2019 World Cup of Rugby, so that bodes well for Australia, who along with England and South Africa are one of the main threats to the All Blacks. With this said, the Australian public love their Rugby, so there’s much pressure on the Wallabies to advance and share in the excitement generated by the Australia during their Cricket World Cup matches just a few months back.

What’s New in the 2019 World Cup?

In terms of representation, of the 20 countries that competed in the previous World Cup there is only one change with Uruguay replacing Russia. It will also come of no surprise to see the ‘big four’ of New Zealand, Australia, South Africa and England being pushed by the likes of Wales and France.

When it comes to prize money, the Rugby World Cup is really the only major international tournament where it isn’t awarded to the participating teams. Instead, each national Rugby Association representing at the World Cup will pay their players fixed bonuses provided the team achieves the goal and/or goals set by their respective association. For example, The Wallabies players will get $250,000 each if they are to win the tournament.
