For the top two teams in the European Championship, the hard work is over and they can look forward to joining Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Fiji, Tonga, Lebanon, Samoa and hosts England in the 2021 finals.
For the bottom two teams, there's a lot more to be done. They have a second chance to make the finals in October-November 2019 when they join Italy, Russia, Spain and either Norway or Greece in the last qualifying tournament.
Four teams will qualify for the finals from those six, so all is not lost for the European Championship losers.
One more place will be decided in two weeks' time when Canada, Jamaica, USA and Chile play semi-finals and finals to decide one qualifier from the America region.
The last place will be decided next years between the Americas runner-up, South Africa and the Cook Islands.
