1995 Rugby World Cup – Oceania qualification

For the 1995 Rugby World Cup in South Africa, the Oceania teams from Australia, New Zealand and Western Samoa were granted automatic entry due to reaching the quarter-final stages of the 1991 tournament.[1][2]

Oceania was granted one further qualifying place, which was decided by a simple home and away play-off between Fiji and Tonga in 1993. Each team lost their home match, but Tonga won the play-off on aggregate score.[3][4]
