The 1995 Rugby World Cup was preceded by a qualifying campaign in which forty-five nations were entered.[1][2][3] 16 teams participated in the finals tournament in South Africa, seven of which came through qualifying matches. Eight were granted automatic entry as they were quarter-finalists at the 1991 Rugby World Cup, and South Africa qualified automatically as hosts.[4]
