Which team should be the best team in the Rugby World Cup?
The IRFU is planning to put the spotlight on the top three teams in the world when they hold the Rugby Championship.
The World Cup will be played in France and Italy, with Wales the tournament’s third-placed team.
There is no doubt that Wales will be hoping for a first-ever World Cup appearance, with a victory at Twickenham in 2019 having been an impressive first test in the last seven years.
But with England, Wales and Ireland playing for the Rugby Cup in 2019, it will be interesting to see how many players will make the move to France and which team wins out.
It is believed the IRFU will give the all-star team a break after the World Cup, with the selection committee looking to get some experience.
However, the selection of the team for the tournament will be decided by the IRF’s medical director, Dr Nick Taylor, and the IRB, who will then make the final call on the team.
The full squad will be announced in January.
