Coetzee - It Doesn't Matter Who Boks Draw At RWC

In the last World Cup, England found themselves in the group of death and duly became the first host nation to crash out of the tournament without making it to the knockouts.

James Haskell has insisted England will adopt a phlegmatic approach to staring down the Rugby World Cup 2019 pool of death.

"Every pool in a World Cup is challenging and the reality is you need to win seven games, regardless of who is in your pool, to win the tournament".

The remainder of Pool A is made up of the qualifers from Europe 1 possibly Romania and the victor of the Play-off between Oceania 3 and Americas 3.

Jones' men are ranked second in the world, while an improving France side are now sixth and Argentina, twice semifinalists, are ninth.

One of the myriad of possibilities within the draw could see a Rugby Championship dominated pool with New Zealand or Australia, South Africa and Argentina. The other two members of the pool have yet to be decided, but one will be a European team such as Romania or Germany, and the other will be the victor of a play-off between the third team in the Pacific Nations Cup (possibly Tonga) and another more lowly-ranked European team.

"Everyone will get excited by it, and we know each other pretty well so we'll just continue to get to understand each other before we get here", Hansen said.
