Rugby World Cup 2019 tables and results so far, as the quarter-finals kick off

These plugins are adorable.

The Rugby World Cup is made up of 20 teams, divided into four pools of five teams.

Each team plays four matches, one game against each side, to determine which two teams will go through to the knockout stages.

Four points are awarded to a side for a win, two points for a draw and zero points for a loss.

There are also bonus points available during the pool stage. One bonus point is awarded for scoring four tries, irrespective of the result. One bonus point can also be gained by the losing side if they lose by seven points or fewer.

Unfortunately, Typhoon Hagibis forced the cancellation of three games, but the quarter-final line-up is now complete and taking place on Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 October.

How many pools are there?

There are four – A, B, C, D – containing five teams each.

Which pool were England in?

Eddie Jones’ featured in Pool C along with Argentina, France, USA and Tonga.

What about the other home nations?

Scotland were in Pool A with Ireland, Japan, Russia and Samoa. Wales, meanwhile, take on Australia, Georgia, Fiji and Uruguay in D.

How many went through in each group?

The top two made it through to the quarter-finals, taking place on October 19 and 20.

What are the final standings?

Which games were cancelled?

Due to Typhoon Hagibis, three matches had to be called off – New Zealand vs Italy and Canada vs Namibia in Pool B and England vs France in Pool C.

Each team will take two points (a draw) from the abandoned games. New Zealand and South Africa have therefore qualified for the quarter-finals from Pool B, and England and France from Pool C.
