France to host 2023 Rugby World Cup
An independent body, hired by World Rugby, gave a recommendation that South Africa should host the tournamnent, but a secret ballot has given the tournament to France who last hosted the tournament in 2007.
On Wednesday, in London, the World Ruby Union will finally take a vote on which country will take on the momentous honour. It insists, however, that the necessary due diligence was carried out.
Both Ireland and France went on an offensive following World Rugby's technical report.
The 2023 Rugby World Cup is a big one. This was in line with World Rugby's aim to deliver a fully transparent host selection process for its showcase event. None of the three teams were allowed to change the details or their bid or offer inducements to council members but there were reports of the very horse-trading and lobbying that the process was created to prevent in the run-up to the vote.
He said Ireland was offering a "different type of tournament" than South Africa or France. South Africa is the best candidate so we'll be guided by the recommendation and vote accordingly.
"We are within touching distance of realising a long-held dream to host the Rugby World Cup once again", said Minister of Sport and Recreation Thulas Nxesi in a statement.
