Ireland has ranked No. 2 again in the 2019 rugby World cup. Since the 2015 Rugby World Cup, they have won 22 of their 31 Tests. Including their first-ever win against New Zealand, a Grand Slam in 2018 and a first series victory in Australia. They have set high hopes of a good run in Japan. They have quality and depth in all the positions, and serious momentum ahead of the encounter against Russia. There is an increased expectation, and that’s something that Ireland often have failed to cope with.
Russia is also expected to advance from Pool A. With their upswing in fortunes under Gregor Townsend, the side pushed (and could have defeated) New Zealand in November last year. They defeated England for the first time in 10 years during the 2018 Six Nations. The Dark Blues have even more to offer, and they are a developed side into giving good results in the World cup. The winner of the encounter will not have to face the all blacks in the quarterfinals.
