Rugby Europe Preview

Spain are one win away from qualifying for their second Rugby World Cup after defeating Germany 84-10 last weekend, while Georgia move even closer to reclaiming the Rugby Europe Championship title with victory over Russia.

King Felipe VI of Spain was among a bumper 15,753 crowd in Madrid as Los Leones recorded an emphatic 84-10 win over Germany to take another step closer towards automatic qualification for Rugby World Cup 2019.

Following their second highest score in test rugby, Spain will head into the final round of Rugby Europe Championship 2018 fixtures knowing that victory over Belgium in Brussels on Saturday will secure them the Europe 1 spot in Pool A in Japan.

Romania achieved the bonus-point win they needed to take the race for the Rugby Europe Championship title and RWC 2019 qualification to the final round. Romania face off against Georgia this weekend in a match that will have effect on their hopes of qualifying for the World Cup but they could still retain their Rugby Europe Championship title with a bonus point win over Georgia. If Spain fail to beat Belguim Romania will go to the Rugby World Cup in their place.

The Lelos now need just one point from their final round match against traditional rivals and 2017 winners Romania to be crowned champions for the seventh time in the last eight years.
