Rugby World Cup Squads: All the RWC 19 squads as they are announced

The Rugby World Cup in Japan gets underway in less than three weeks and the 20 Nations lining up for a shot at the Webb Ellis trophy have until 8 September to name their 31-player squads.

A number of teams have already named their groups, among them the Springboks who have arrived in Japan and held their first training session in Sekhi on 1 September.

Players may be replaced in a Rugby World Cup squad for medical or compassionate reasons, but would be unable to return to the squad. Any replacement player(s) has an enforced stand-down period of 48 hours before they can take the field.
