There are six countries taking part in the 2019 Pacific Nations Cup in July and August 2019 and all six will later be playing in the Rugby World Cup which starts in September.

The six countries are Canada, Fiji, Japan, Samoa, Tonga and the USA. For those six countries the Pacific Nations Cup is an ideal warm-up series.

Not all of the match officials have been appointed to duty at the World Cup. Those appointed are Luke Pearce, Andrew Brace, Brendon Pickerill, Jérôme Graces, Ben O’Keeffe and Nigel Owens.
