Ireland have been brilliant all year, have won a Six Nations Grand Slam and have beaten the All Blacks in the last 12 months.

France's win over Italy ensured that New Zealand will finish second in Pool A.

The Kiwis also have a lot of pundits writing them off after their opening-day defeat to France.

Do so at your peril.

Who could England be up against?

Quarter-final 3 – October 14 (4pm) – Marseille

England vs Fiji/Australia

As Wales and Australia found out, Fiji are a very, very dangerous side.

Scotland crash out

Quarter-final 4 – October 15 (8pm) – Paris
