Scotland and Ireland were drawn together for the second successive tournament in a row, in a group also containing the defending champions South Africa. 2019 finalists England will face Japan and Argentina, whilst Wales will play Australia and Fiji in a pool for the third successive tournament. In Pool A, hosts France will play New Zealand and Italy.
The remaining eight teams (two for each pool) will qualify by November 2022. The full schedule for the tournament will be available by the end of February 2021.
