Six teams have qualified for the 2014 Women’s Rugby World Cup. They are:- New Zealand (2010 champions)
- England (2010 runners-up)
- Australia (2010 bronze medallists)
- France (2014 hosts)
- USA and Canada by virtue of their top six finish at WRWC 2010
Two further teams will confirm their place after the 2013 Women’s 6 Nations tournament (based on the next best sides behind England and France across the 2012 and 2013 tournaments).
The qualification process for other teams will be announced in due course.
