Here we go, draw numbers happening in random order:


17. Izzy

Japan 250/1

QUOTE
The 2019 hosts, as the World Cup is played in Asia for the first time. The Brave Blossoms caused the greatest upset in World Cup history in 2015 when they beat giants South Africa, thanks to an injury-time try. Back then they were coached by Eddie Jones, the man at the helm of England now. They are still a minnow in rugby circles, but are serious about becoming a tier one nation sooner rather than later. They've beaten Tonga and Fiji in 2019, and Italy, Georgia and Russia in 2018. They also led England at Twickenham in November at half-time before losing 35-15. They are the reigning Pacific Cup champions and with a home crowd on their side they will be expecting to get out of the group stages at least.

10. Riser

Canada 1000/1



QUOTE
They won't like the comparison, but they are very much like the USA. They are a likeable side, with a lot of goodwill toward them. They play with a lot of passion and hard work and have some notable names in their squad that have done well in Europe, but again lack the quality to ever be a tier one nation and they also lost every game in 2015, although they should have beaten Romania and Italy. In the 90s they threatened to be the next minnows to break into the top ranks, but they never kicked on and instead have gone backwards, despite being coached by the former Sale boss Kingsley Jones. They were the last team to qualify for Japan, taking the last spot through the repechage tournament with Hong Kong, Kenya and Germany and have lost all four warmup matches to date.

9. Houdini


Samoa 500/1


QUOTE
The name sends a shudder down the spine of opponents, as these boys have always been brutes. Physically almost perfect, they combine awesome power with great handling skills. However they are sadly a fading nation due to a lack of world support. Other nations regularly steal their players, and those left behind rarely get to practice together. That's shown by the fact they finished behind Tonga and Fiji in qualifying and had to beat Germany to reach Japan. In-game their physical dominance often goes over the top, with many red and yellow cards issued against them. With the new strict tackle laws, it means a lot of their traditional power tackling has been taken out of their game, which was one of their biggest weapons - much to the delight of opposition.
