The winner of the tournament will qualify for Rugby World Cup 2021 and the runner-up will progress to the final qualification tournament, which will be organised by World Rugby in 2021.

The winner of the Women’s REC 2020 will join Scotland, Ireland and Italy, who have already been confirmed by World Rugby to take part in the Rugby World Cup 2021 European Qualifiers.
Interim Scotland Women Head Coach, Bryan Easson, said: “We are under no illusions on how tough this busy period will be and we will have to be at our very best to progress through to the Rugby World Cup.”
