Well you would like to think they would beat any of the teams from Romania, Russia, Spain or Belguim to be honest.

Following the scandal involving Spain & Belgium, who along with Romania have all been docked points for fielding ineligible players in numerous matches, Russia top the Championship table & qualify for the Rugby World Cup. Fifth-placed Germany move up to second and will now play European Trophy winners Portugal in a European play-off, with the winner facing Samoa for a place at the World Cup.

Russia join Ireland, Scotland and hosts Japan in Pool A, playing Japan in the opening match of the tournament whilst the winner of the Germany/Portugal v Samoa will complete Pool A.
