Who is Playing in the 2024 Tournament?
As the 2024 Rugby World Cup approaches, fans are wondering who will be playing in the tournament. The answer is: we don’t know yet! The qualification process for the World Cup is not yet complete, so we’ll have to wait a bit longer to find out which teams will be competing.
What we do know is that Australia, England, France, Ireland, New Zealand and Wales will automatically qualify for the tournament as they are the top six ranked teams in the world. These six teams will be joined by the winner of the 2020 Rugby Championship (which is currently being contested by Argentina, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa) and the winners of two global repechage tournaments (one for Oceania and one for Europe/Africa).
So far, only Fiji have confirmed their place in the Oceania repechage tournament. The other teams that will compete in this tournament are yet to be determined.
