Alternatively the northern and southern hemispheres could find themselves jostling with their geographical neighbours to a greater extent than normal. Three of Cal Ripken Youth Jersey the four teams in the Rugby Championship could theoretically end up in direct pool opposition along with two of Fiji, Samoa and Tonga, with the All Blacks coach, Steve Hansen, among those conducting the draw; similarly five Six Nations teams could be randomly shoehorned into just two pools, with Georgia featuring as well. Men's Replica Majestic Jonathan Villar White Alternate Jersey - #5 MLB Milwaukee Brewers Cool Base Will England and Wales be pitted together again? It could happen, although Gatland hopes not. Wales currently have two provisionally scheduled warm-up games apiece against England and Ireland and would have to amend those plans. Ireland, for their part, will be having flashbacks to all their uncomfortable meetings with Argentina in past tournaments. It would also render largely irrelevant the decision to hold the draw slightly later than normal (albeit still two years in advance of the event) to try to smooth out form-based kinks.

Imagine the tournament kicking off on 20 September 2019 with a fixture between Japan and New Zealand in front of a mad-for-it, sold-out local crowd, beamed live to a global audience of millions. An experimental World Cup staged in a sporting and commercial backwater? Hardly. So good luck to all the frequent fliers and never mind that wet weather forced the tournament organisers to shift the venue for the pre-draw reception. In the land of the sumo wrestler something seriously big has materialised on the horizon and its name is not Bill Beaumont. Regardless of the impending pool outcomes, all connected with rugby are winners this week
