Rugby World Cup: Pool C Preview

Countries competing in Pool (IRB ranking in brackets)

Argentina (8)
Georgia (16)
Namibia (20)
New Zealand (1)
Tonga (11)

Pool C looks to be fairly cut, with New Zealand and Argentina being the clear favourites to progress. However, Tonga will certainly have hopes of ruining that and qualifying for the knockout phases, almost certainly at the expense of Argentina if they manage to do so. As a result, this is probably the biggest game of the group, although I am sure Georgia will be looking to spring a surprise against Argentina and/or Tonga through their strong forwards, but I don’t think that they will. For Namibia, it looks difficult to see how they will manage a win in a tough-looking group for them.

Predicted final table:

1. New Zealand
2. Argentina
3. Tonga
4. Georgia
5. Namibia
