    The Final (and 3rd place play off)

    Good start to the build up for England as Willie Heinz is ruled out with a hamstring and Ben Spencer is called up to replace him and presumably gets a spot in the XXIII.

    Always said we should've had three 9s in the squad...

    3rd place matches shouldn't exist outside of the Olympics.

    Kind of agree, but technically they're also obviously fine in qualifying tournaments where >2 teams qualify. The World T20 Qualifier for example has a 5th and 6th place playoff because six teams qualify for the World T20.

    Sure but a qualifying tournament isn’t the same

    Agreed, and I suspect they're the last thing either set of players wants. I don't recall the world being a worse place before they were introduced.

    Back in the day the 3/4 playoff was used to determine an automatic qualification for the next World Cup. I am not sure its the case anymore

    I have not heard any change to the automatic qualification rule for third place.

    According to this:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Third_place_playoff

    The Rugby World Cup used to give automatic qualification to all teams in the top three of the ongoing tournament to the one that would follow it four years later thus making the third place playoff game important, but this was later scrapped after the 1999 edition of the tournament allowing teams outside the top three to automatically qualify depending on their IRB co-efficient in the rankings.

    No one should automatically qualify besides the hosts who should be selected from countries that are in the top 16 on the day the host country is drawn. There is no reason rugby should play less games that mean something. Particularly when there is zero chance any of the teams that reach the quarterfinals wouldn’t make it in to the top 16 of the world.
