Here you can find all of the 2019 Rugby World Cup ladders and standings, as well as the results.
Five teams play in each of the four pools, with the top two teams in each group progressing to the knockout stage of the tournament.
Two pool games were abandoned due to super typhoon Hagibis: France versus England and New Zealand versus Italy. Both were declared 0-0 draws as a result of the cancellation.
South Africa were the ultimate victors of the World Cup, defeating England 32-12 in the final.
Teams are awarded points based on their performances in the group stage matches. A victory is worth four points, a draw is worth two and a loss is worth zero.
Teams can also be awarded a bonus point for losing a match by seven points or fewer, or for scoring four or more tries in a match. It is possible to be awarded both bonus points for the same game.
In the event of two teams finishing with the same number of points, the team that won the head-to-head match will be ranked higher. If they tied, for-and-against will be used as the tiebreaker.
