Some doubt cast on USA qualifying for Pool A. They might be in Pool D instead, with England, Argentina, Japan and Samoa. (possibly even Pool C)
Good Americas and Pacific-6-Nations rivalries in that group. The ghost of Sunwolves vs Jaguares too.
Depends how well USA bounce back next Saturday for the return leg. (rather inauspicious date for it)

I'll have 2 early guesses at how RWC 2023 will go

Pool A: 1st NZ, 2nd Fra OR 1st Fra 2nd NZ
Pool B: 1st RSA, 2nd Ireland
Pool C: 1st wild card, 2nd meh
Pool D: 1st Eng, 2nd wild card

QF1 Wild card
QF2 RSA < France OR South Africa > NZ
QF3 England > meh
QF4 New Zealand > Ire OR France > Ire

SF1 France > wild card OR South Africa > wild card
SF2 England > NZ OR France > Eng

3rd F New Zealand > wild card OR England > wild card
Final France > Eng OR South Africa > Fra

So 1st France 2nd England 3rd New Zealand OR 1st South Africa 2nd France 3rd England
4th could be any of Wales, Australia, Japan, Argentina

He who winneth QF2, winneth the cup

And so it is. The Qualifier for Pool A is Uruguay (16) - they will join New Zealand (2), France (6), Italy (14) and e.g. Namibia (25)

USA (17) now have to face off with Chile (26) for the right to join Pool D - with England (4), Argentina (8), Japan(10) and Samoa (13)

Canada (23) won't be participating in RWC 2023, they just got eliminated by Chile.
