RESUME VIDEO. Ireland thrash All Blacks to clinch world No. 1 spotAnother historic weekend for the nations of the northern hemisphere with the victories of Ireland and England in their series against New Zealand and Australia. Last week, all European nations had won their match at the expense of their southern counterparts. Sending a strong signal 14 months from the World Cup in France. For the time being, it is indeed the nations of the Tournament who are in a position of strength in their relationship with the southerners. But we know very well that things can change between now and next year. The situation could be very different at the time of the competition. Just as it could be reversed in November when the selections from the south arrive in Europe. However, not all of them will have the opportunity to take their revenge.
Indeed, if Japan will again cross the road of the Blues and the Pumas that of the Scottish, the All Blacks will not challenge the Irish in Dublin as last November. Which does not mean that their program will be any easier. They will face Wales, Scotland and England. As for the Wallabies, beaten by the English, they will go to France, Italy and Ireland as well as Wales. A very tight schedule for the Australians still in the run-in. By then, the Rugby Championship will have been there and they could have regained their luster. What about the South Africans who lost for the first time in their history at home against the Welsh? They face the Irish in what promises to be a very high-level and instructive encounter. Their trip to Marseille will also be a real test, both for the Blues and for the Boks. And what about the match at Twickenham, remake of the last final of the 2019 World Cup.Rugby. The solid program of the French team before the World Cup known!Note that this won’t be the last time the northern and southern nations meet before the World Cup. Although the July tour is not taking place in 2023, warm-up matches are on the schedule for the competing teams. Thus, we already know that Australia will find France to refine the latest launches and gauge itself. We can imagine that other clashes between the north and the south will be on the program before the group matches. Indeed, the southerners could arrive quite early in their respective base camp in France in order to best prepare for the competition.World Cup.
