Each team has two matches left, which means that, with three points for a win and a bonus point, Georgia and Romania cannot be overtaken. Whichever of the two ends top at the end - They play each other on 15 March - will be in Pool C with New Zealand, Argentina and Tonga and the African qualifier. The team that comes second will be in a pool with France, Ireland, Italy and Canada.
