Rugby World Cup 2019 fixtures and results: Match dates, schedule and scores from tournament so far

I be mad for constituents, because they are glamorous!

The 2019 Rugby World Cup is now well underway as nations from across the globe kicked off the competition for the Webb Ellis Cup.

Here is the full list of fixtures for the 20 countries competing, along with the results of the tournament so far.

Where is the tournament being held?

Japan. See the full list of stadiums hosting the games.

The host nation had an excellent start to the competition, by winning their first game against Russia. They then went on to defeat Ireland, the world’s second-ranked team, in one of the biggest shock victories of the tournament so far.

Who are the competing teams?

What is the latest RWC news?

Here’s a basic run-down of how the tournament format works:

The opening group stage of the competition sees 20 teams attempt to battle their way out of four Pools – A, B, C and D. Each Pool contains five teams and only two can advance into the knockout rounds.

From there it is standard quarter-final, semi-final, final format.

England’s Pool is particularly tricky having been drawn in C with Argentina and France. It means one of rugby’s ‘big fish’ will suffer the ignominy of going home early.
