Eddie Jones dismisses pool of death fears after England are drawn against

STEVE HANSEN REACTED to New Zealand being drawn against South Africa at the 2019 Rugby World Cup by stating "if you're going to win the thing you've got to play all the good teams".

As one of the top seeds [fourth in the rankings], Joe Schmidt's men were drawn in with hosts Japan, Scotland and the victor of qualification matches from Europe and a play-off.

The Six Nations winners face another tough start against France, three times losing finalists, and Argentina but England coach Eddie Jones scoffed at the idea it was a deadly draw.

England were knocked out of the 2015 Rugby World Cup at the Pool stage, after losing to Wales and Australia.

Only 12 teams were in the draw at Kyoto's State Guest House with the other eight nations yet to qualify from various regional tournaments.

New Zealand lost to South Africa in the 1995 final, but they have won their last two World Cup meetings, including their 2015 semi-final. We're looking forward to it.

What do we want British Columbia to look like in 4 years, in 10 years, in 40 years? "I think people will be quite happy with him". The Liberals needed 44 seats for a majority, but they only got 43, surrendering 41 to the NDP and three to the Green Party.

"We've got two Tests against Argentina in June so we can practise a little bit. We're making a lot of changes in Italian rugby". The decision was made unanimously, and follows a long campaign led by World Rugby vice-chairman Agustin Pichot to reform the regulation.

Holders and favourites New Zealand were left unchanged at, while Ireland were regarded as winners in the draw by our betting partners - they were slashed from 14/1 to after landing in the same pool as Scotland and hosts Japan.

With two teams going through to the quarter-finals, qualification from Pool A should be a fight between those three.

They said: "Who's calling it the group of death?"

England will be hoping to do better the time round, after a bad performance in the last World Cup, when they became the first team to host the tournament and exit before the knockout stages.

"We will be ready".

"We know how risky they can be, having played them in the World Cup and on tour past year".

Wallabies coach Michael Cheika is playing down Australia's seemingly dream 2019 Rugby World Cup draw.

Hansen's New Zealand are striving to complete a hat-trick of World Cup victories, while England, up to second in the rankings under Jones, are dreaming of ending the All Blacks' dominance.

"World Cup is a special time obviously there is more excitement closer to it, but you really want to go there when there is someone in your pool that you really got to be on edge about", Foster said.

"Just choose smartly", said a chuckling Foster.
