Turf Bar Melbourne 2019 Rugby World Cup

Turf Bar Melbourne 2019 Rugby World Cup
New Zealand again, or maybe it's the turn of a northern hemisphere team, or South Africa, the only undefeated side in 2019.
 Without doubt, the 2019 Rugby World Cup is one of the most open in decades, with questions being asked of the All Blacks as they got in search of another world crown.
 Japan's hosting of the event, which began on September 20 and runs through to early November, will undoubtedly be a sporting triumph off the field, such as their attention to detail, but on it, many are predicting some upsets.
 The host nation Cherry Blossoms caused an upset in 2015 when they beat the Springboks 34-32 – and interest in the game has grown steadily since. The coach Eddie Jones has moved to London, but the hosts will be no pushovers, a blueprint for rugby success has been paid down, and in true Japanese business-style, they won't let up until victory has been achieved.
