France to host 2023 Rugby World Cup

Wednesday's decision, announced by World Rugby chairman Bill Beaumont, means France will be staging a World Cup for the second time, having previously hosted the 2007 edition.

France will host the 2023 Rugby World Cup after the Council of the sport's governing body surprisingly went against the recommendations of an extensive evaluation report in a secret ballot on Wednesday.

France has won the hosting rights to the 2023 Rugby World Cup, infuriating the ousted South African bidding team.

"The ability to submit clarification requests following the publication of the recommendation and comprehensive report on 31 October was agreed and permitted within the host selection process operated by World Rugby".

Subsequently two weeks ago, our country's bid in London was named as the "clear leader" and "unanimous" choice by the Rugby World Cup board to host the tournament whilst contenders France and Ireland were rated second and third respectively.

"But obviously I am delighted for France, they have run a World Cup before and we are really excited for the tournament".

"Because the vote went to France after we had recommended South Africa doesn't mean it's humiliation (for World Rugby)", he said.

"In our letter, we had a great saying by Albert Einstein and here I paraphrase him: "There are a lot of things that can be counted which don't actually count and there are lots of things that count that can't be counted".

"When you host the World Cup, you create an aspirational platform and a financial platform that creates enough revenue so you can further your development plans and maybe stem the outflow of the players".

Ultimately, Browne believes that the evaluation report had a detrimental effect on Ireland's bid and it was one which they couldn't recover from.

"It was a bid for all of French rugby". The remaining Six Nations and SANZAR countries had three votes each with the rest made up from the six regional associations and smaller rugby countries.

Mr. Alexander said that after a fourth successive disappointment in the Rugby World Cup bidding process it was hard to know where South Africa would go from here.

Mark Alexander, president of SA Rugby, said he was "desolated" and fumed about breaches of protocol by other bidders. We wish them every success as they turn their attention to delivering an outstanding tournament.
