Romania leads the race to secure the Europe 1 qualification place for Rugby World Cup 2019, but Germany are hot on their heels after both sides recorded their second wins in the Rugby Europe Championship 2017 over the weekend.
Results from the 2017 and 2018 Rugby Europe Championship count towards RWC 2019 qualification, with the best-placed side other than Georgia taking the direct route to Japan.
The Oaks are currently sitting in pole position behind table-topping Georgia, on 10 points, having picked up all five points from their 30-10 victory against Russia in Sochi.
