The question on every rugby fan’s mind . . .

The one about whether France can beat New Zealand in the opening match on September 8th (they can, but it won’t be easy).

We all know about the logic behind holding the draw three years before the tournament. (Yes, the top four sides in the world right now are on the same side of the draw – we live with it).

This is not the one about whether misfiring England will make it out of their pool. (No comment).

What’s going on with the opening ceremony?

We know that Jean Dujardin is involved

In advance of the opening match on September 8th, the Oscar-winning actor and French rugby fan will host the opening ceremony at Stade de France.

Meanwhile, we’ve been promised, “a cast of stars in a show that will celebrate the best of France,” according to World Rugby. 

Nevertheless, the governing body announced that 33 high-profile guests, including an internationally renowned music act, and 200 volunteers will “represent France’s unique savoir-faire in gastronomy, sports, and arts”.
