The round robin Repechage tournament comes to an end this Friday with the battle for the last spot for RWC 2019 in Japan up for grabs between Hong Kong and Canada.

Canada, who have been to every Rugby World Cup are two wins from two games, while Hong Kong lies five points behind them with one win (with a bonus point) over Kenya and an unforeseen loss to Germany in the first round. Canada need only a point from this game while Hong Kong have to win with a bonus point if they are to upset Canada on the last day.

The winner of the Repechage will go on to occupy the last slot in RWC 2019 and complete Group B alongside defending Champions New Zealand, 2007 Champions South Africa, 2018 Gold Cup champions Namibia and Italy.

The other repechage game is between Kenya and Germany, and it has no bearing to who will emerge winner but either sides have to play with all they have to salvage some competitive pride.
