The final pool matches at the Womens Rugby World Cup 2017 take place on Thursday.
This tournament will no doubt favour those countries with strength in depth, at a World Cup where teams are expected to win five matches in 17 days.
England, with a fully proffesional squad, and great strength in depth, have a big advantage over their rivals, a fact confirmed by their coach Simon Middleton, and it is difficult to imagine that the Red Roses, along with New Zealand, will not make the semi finals.
That leaves the USA, Canada, France and hosts Ireland to fight it out for the final two places.
Ireland have to beat an inform French team who demolished Australia last Sunday, whilst the host nation struggled to see off Japan.
Canada will probably need a bonus point against New Zealand to have a chance of going through as the best runner up, as the USA are a point ahead of them going in to their last game against England.
So the semi finals could end up with New Zealand playing Canada for the second time in four days, and England facing either France or Ireland.
It’s going to be an epic day on Thursday
