Rugby World Cup Squads Wait For Players Due To An Insurance Dispute

An insurance wrangle between World Rugby football and the leadership is threatening to severely hamper Rugby World Cup 2019 preparations for nations like as Wales and Scotland who might be deprived of their players within the buildup to the tournament.

Wales would be without a host of most important international tournaments including Taulupe Faletau, Dan Biggar and Liam Williams for their strategic altitude training camp in July similarly as their initial World Cup preparation match in contradiction of England at Twickenham on Eleven-Aug.

Scotland who might be denied quick contact to Stuart Hogg dependent on the terms and begin date of his Exeter contract would be hit hard, having included 9 Premiership Rugby Limited (PRL) players in their squad this season, whereas Italy and a host of tier 2 nations would also be disrupted.

Warren Gatland selected Josh Adams, Tomas Francis and Luke Charteris for their summer tour however PRL refused to release them for the fixture against South Africa in Washington DC in early June as a result of it fell outside the official summer Test window.

As Gatland said: “I understand completely what PRL are trying to do in the autumn when we organize a fourth international. They’re protecting their own competition. I realize that too. However, I just can’t comprehend why they would stop players from joining us a week or too early.”

Rugby World Cup 2019 – Warren Gatland’s ability to grab best from Wales bodes

The Six Nations trumps the rugby football Championship for preparation. Wales, European country and Ireland have an opportunity of glory in Japan. Before the beginning of the Six Nations this month, Ireland was thought to be Europe’s prime challengers within the Rugby World Cup. Then it had been European country when their emphatic victory in the capital of Ireland and denuding of France at Twickenham, however within the third round the odds on the favorites New Zealand turning into the primary team to win the Webb Elis Trophy for a 3rd consecutive time shrink.

“Wales won by default in Six Nations clash with England,” blared one headline in New Zealand this week. The rubbish remarked to the lack of space either side manufactured with the ball in hand however, matches within the knockout stage of a World Cup can be just as claustrophobic.

Gatland’s ability to squeeze the most effective out of his team has made him the media favorite to interchange Eddie Jones as England’s head coach, whenever which will be with the Australian contracted until 2021. England sounded out Gatland, who had enjoyed a trophy-rich stint with Wasps earlier in the decade, in 2007, a few weeks before Wales called him, however, failed to follow it up.

England, the country everybody likes to beat, would vary, as would its domestic system. Gatland is that the master of Welsh rugby football wherever, as in Ireland and New Zealand, the national team is at the highest of the pyramid. Jones needs to deal with a strong union of clubs who have become emboldened by an infusion of cash from a private equity company. There could be trouble ahead. Jones has largely remained above the politics however, non-interference has not been an approach taken by Gatland.

England thrash France 44-8 in 2019 Six Nations

England have continued good run in Six Nations Championship 2019, with 44-8 victory against France on 10th February 2019 at Twickenham Stadium, London. England have won second match in a row in 2019 Six Nations. This is France’s second defeat with largest margin versus England, after their 37-0 loss in 1911. This is second biggest loss for France against any team in Six/Five Nations history since that drubbing. Six Nations Championship offers adequate training for Rugby World Cup 2019 to rugby union teams hailing from northern hemisphere.

England attacked on France right from the start of match. Jonny May opened scoring with a penalty on 2′. English captain Owen Farrell kicked a penalty on 7′. Morgan Parra opened account for France by nailing a penalty on 10′. Farrell smashed his second penalty on 13′. Jonny May booted his second try on 24′.

With a 22 point deficit, chances of revival were bleak for France. A penalty try on 49′ all but sealed the game for England. Owen Farrell hit a penalty on 55′ and did a subsequent conversion himself on 56′. Scoreline read 44-8 in favour of England and remained so till match finish time. France were so devastated that they could not manufacture another scoring shot. Game closed on 44-8 with England emerging as victorious team on the closing time.

England coach Eddie Jones stated: “We weren’t happy at half time; we felt we had gone off the boil a little so I was really pleased with the second half as we shut them out … left a few scoring opportunities out there but certainly our second half was better than our first. It is a difficult game, you get points in front, your natural tendency is to get seduced by the scoreboard and you start doing things you wouldn’t normally do but we kept to our discipline. That’s the way the game is going (the kicking). If teams defend like that (with a high line) then the space is there in the back field and we have the pace. I’m sure teams will start defending us differently and that will create space in other areas.”

France coach Jacques Brunel said: “It was obviously very disappointing, especially the first half. The kicking game created pressure that we were not able to overcome. The same things happened throughout the game. We found ourselves on the line without anyone in behind and we were punished.”

New Zealand favourite for Rugby World Cup with Ireland following

Three times world champions New Zealand are favorites for 2019 Rugby World Cup. But they will have to keep close eye on Ireland. World number one ranked All Blacks had a seesaw year in 2018 with highs and lows. World No. ranked Irish side had defeated New Zealand 16-9 in Autumn Internationals 2018 at Aviva Stadium in Dublin. Steve Hansen’s All Blacks have now lost two out of three last games played against Joe Schmidt’s Irish team. Johnny Sexton, Ireland vice-captain played important role in the wins. Ireland have revealed that there are some weakness in New Zealand’s arsenal in a long while. This opens up the stacks for the Rugby World Cup 2019 in Japan.

All Blacks head coach Steve Hansen said: “As of now they are the number-one team in the world. So if you want to make them World Cup favourites, go ahead. I guess they are favourites.”

New Zealand top the World Rugby Rankings, closely followed by Ireland. While other top Rugby Union teams like Wales, England, South Africa, Australia and Scotland are trailing closely behind. It is hard to think of a World Cup like the 2015 edition, when all four semi-finalists came from the southern hemisphere.

This comes after All Blacks lost 34-36 against South Africa in September 2018 at Wellington, thus ending 15-match winning streak by New Zealand. It was first loss at home by All Blacks versus an international Rugby Union side since 2009, apart from defeat against British and Irish Lions in 2017. New Zealand are ruling the World Rugby scene since their third Rugby World Cup title win in 2015. All Blacks are double defending champions as they had won RWC edition at their home turf in 2011. New Zealand were also world champions of the inaugural Rugby World Cup in 1987.

South Africa coach Rassie Erasmus said: “We’ve shown on the day when everything’s aligned and the guys are all in the same frame of mind, we can beat the All Blacks away and win a series against England”.

“It’s wide open,” he said of the World Cup. “I’ve been involved in World Cups since 1995, but really this one I couldn’t put money on who’s going to be in the semi-finals.”

England beat spirited Japan in Autumn Internationals 2018

England defeated Japan 35-15 in the 2018 Autumn Internationals match at Twickenham Stadium in London. Danny Care, George Ford, Elliot Daly, Mark Wilson, Joe Cokanasiga and Dylan Hartley scored for English side. Japanese team scored with Ryoto Nakamura, Michael Leitch and Yu Tamura. This game was part of preparations of Rugby World Cup 2019 for national rugby union teams of both England and Japan.

England scored first in the match with Danny Care smashing a try in 4’ that Red Roses captain George Ford converted in 5’. Japan answered with Yu Tamura kicking a penalty in 17’. Ryoto Nakamura hit a try on 22′ that Tamura converted. Elliot Daly of Red Roses responded with a 28’ penalty. Brave Blossom’s skipper Michael Leitch kicked a try in 31’. Scoreline on break time was 15-10 with Japan leading. It was a remarkable performance by Brave Blossoms, and hinted they may be on mission of another giant slaying.

England had to field co-captain Owen Farrell in the second half to take back the control. George Ford started English attack after break with 56’ penalty. Mark Wilson upped the ante with 59’ try that George Ford converted in 60’. George Ford scored second penalty of his own in 65’. Joe Cokanasiga hit a 71′ penalty that George Ford converted in 72’. England regular captain Dylan Hartley scored a try in 76’ to make team total 35. Japan could not score in the second half unfortunately. England have won two matches in Autumn Internationals 2018 so far. This match served well in English preparation for RWC 2019. Japan will pride in taking Red Roses to the limit in first half. Being the host of 2019 Webb Ellis Cup means that Japanese preparation for RWC 2019 should also be on song.

England head coach Eddie Jones said: “We wanted Japan to be at their best so we’re so pleased with that game; it’s the sort of game we needed. They had a few things go their way and got back into the game and it became an arm wrestle for a while. We had a team with 11 changes and there wasn’t a lot of cohesion, but Owen Farrell made a difference for our team because he’s an influential player.”

Japan head coach Jamie Joseph said: “We gave sloppy penalties away and allowed England back in which was a little bit disappointing, but I’m proud of the players all the same. Comments in the media helped our motivation. Eddie Jones’ comments fired me up a bit but at the end of the day we still prepare how we prepare. Our mentality is slowly changing, we’re starting to believe that we can take these bigger teams on and that’s going to help us next year.”
