Rugby World Cup 2019: Fixtures, Results And Tables

Rugby World Cup 2019: Fixtures, Results And Tables

The Rugby Union World Cup Group Stages are all decided after a few weeks of high scoring games and a few major surprises, with Japan and Scotland saving the best game for last.

Hosts Japan made it through to the knockout stages for the first time by beating Scotland 28-21 in an enthralling final group game match that was nearly called off thanks to Typhoon Hagibis.

The bonus point win for Japan sent Gregor Townsend's side home and sent themselves through as group winners to face a rematch with South Africa, who they beat in the group stages four years ago.

How do the Group Stages work?

There are four groups of five with the teams playing each other once. Top two from each group go through to the quarter finals, and third place are guaranteed a place in the 2023 World Cup.

It's four points for a win, one point for a draw and nothing for a loss however there are bonus points on offer.

A team earns a bonus point either by scoring four tries or by losing by less than seven points.
