‍

The favorites

‍

france ⭐⭐⭐⭐

‍

At home, the Blues will advance as favorites. Second nation in the world, France won the Six Nations Championship by winning the Grand Slam in 2022. His start to the World Cup will be difficult with a potential quarterfinal against Ireland.

‍

‍

‍

‍‍

New Zealand ⭐⭐⭐⭐
‍

β€œOnly” third nation in the world and β€œonly” third at the last World Cup, New Zealand is not in the best period in its history. But the Blacks know how to win, more than anyone. They will be tough at the World Cup.

‍

‍

‍

‍

ireland ⭐⭐⭐⭐


The best nation in the world in 2023 is Ireland. Winners of the Six Nations Championship and world ranking leaders, the Irish are among the favorites. Their inexperience (no World Cup semi-finals played) could cost them in key matches.

‍

‍

‍

‍

South Africa ⭐⭐⭐


And here are the title holders! With their rough game, South Africans are always hard to take on. They will have to cough to get out of their hens and they could cross France or the Blacks in quarters: not an easy task.

‍

‍

The outsiders

‍

england ⭐⭐

‍

Winners in 2003, the English were beaten in the final four years ago. Since then, they won the Six Nations in 2020 before sliding slightly in the global hierarchy. To see them win this year would be a surprise.

‍

‍

‍

‍

‍

australia ⭐⭐

‍

4 years ago, Australia went through the back door of the World Cup, swept by England in the quarterfinals (40-16). In 10 years, she has only won one edition of the Rugby Championship.

‍

‍

‍

‍

‍

argentina ⭐

‍

In 2019, in the France and England group, Argentina did not play in the World Cup finals. This time she should have her place in the quarterfinals. And why not more?

‍

‍

‍

‍

‍

wales ⭐

‍

Wales will face Australia in Group C but should qualify for the rest of the competition. Only fifth in the last tournament, the Welsh are a notch below their European counterparts.

‍

‍

‍

‍

scotland ⭐

‍

Victorious over England in the last tournament, Scotland could play a spooky spot. But for that, it will take a feat in groups since South Africa and Ireland will be on its way.
