The Contenders

Wales head to Japan as the northern hemisphere’s dominant force, following a highly impressive Six Nations campaign which ended with them beating Ireland in Cardiff to secure the Grand Slam. This Rugby World Cup will be Warren Gatland’s swansong as Wales coach, with the Kiwi returning to his native New Zealand after the tournament following four golden years in charge. Well drilled and with strength-in-depth across the park, the Welsh seem to have peaked at just the right time, and they are currently on a winning run of 14 Test matches. But while things might be rosy in the Valleys, things are not so great Down Under, with Australia heading into the tournament in relative disarray. The Wallabies managed four victories in 13 Tests in 2018 – their worst calendar year since 1958 – while the murky Israel Folau saga played out in the background.
