Pool A of the 2015 Rugby World Cup began on 18 September and was completed on 10 October 2015.[1] The pool was composed of hosts England, as well as the third- and fourth-placed teams from 2011, Australia and Wales. They were joined by the Oceania qualifier, Fiji, and the repechage qualifier, Uruguay. The group was called the group of death, with 4 of the teams competing being ranked in the top ten of the World going into the World Cup.[2][3] Australia and Wales qualified for the quarter finals.[4]
