    I think the format has been exactly the same for the last four RWCs.

    QF1: Winner pool B vs runner-up pool A
    QF2: Winner pool C vs runner-up pool D
    QF3: Winner pool D vs runner-up pool C
    QF4: Winner pool A vs runner-up pool B

    SF1: Winner QF1 vs winner QF2
    SF2: Winner QF3 vs winner QF4

    Thanks, but Wikipedia is only as good as the referenced souces. Nothing there.

    I could edit the page now and change it another way. :)

    Clicking on Note 9 delivers a 404 error. - There must be a WR doc somewhere.

    You would think that makes sense.

    But has something explicitly stating that been officially published?

    If it has, it's hard to find.

    It's not a research essay.

    Yup, it's a mere cut'n'paste from 2015.

    Not worth the electrons it's printed on.

    Ha ha ha ha, I just read a Jim Tucker article - Dick Graham is the Georgia backs coach.

    I didn't know whether to laugh or feel sorry for them...

    This is merely the first phase of our plan - he will work his way up the ranks, destroying opposition teams from the inside until he gets to the All Blacks HC position. From here, he will quietly dismantle the on and off-field departments, introducing arrogance, nepotism and shitty play into the NZRFU and All Blacks to help the Wallabies finally reclaim the Bledisloe Cup. You see, he is on our side. I mean, just look at his face - his smile disguises his true intentions:

    RedsHappy, we found a use for him - he is an Agent of Evil in the service of the ARU.

    Our version of Robbie Deans (at least according to many conspiracy theorists on this site).;)

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ what makes you think Deans & Graham aren't Master & Apprentice? Makes perfect sense if one believes that Deans was an NZRU plant to begin with, NZRU apparently being rugby's Dark Side......

    Graham Henry reacts to accusations that he Belichick-ed the Wallabies.

    Canada USA 2 in Pool D.
    Fiji - Oceania 1
    Samoa - Oceania 2
    Europe 1 - Romania
    Africa 1 - Namibia

    I hope we don't have the exact same teams as 2015. Kenya and Zimbabwe were both very close to qualifying ahead of Namibia last time so perhaps one of them could come through as Africa 1 this time.

    I also think Spain are a decent chance of getting through, either by beating Tonga in the playoff or more likely winning the repechage. They have quite a few professional players in France - most only play for them sporadically so they're not often at full strength, and probably a number of others who are eligible through parents or grandparents that might put their hand up if Spain were to be so close to qualifying (Russia are still a chance at beating them to the playoff spot).
