Defining Day For Ireland’s Rugby World Cup Bid

Written 3 weeks ago by Newsroom


It is a defining day for Ireland’s hopes of hosting the 2023 Rugby World Cup.

A bid evaluation report will be released this morning and is expected to recommend that either Ireland, France or South Africa stage the tournament.

The World Rugby Council is set to follow that recommendation when the final decision is made with a vote in London next month.

France and South Africa have made large financial commitments, but bid ambassador Brian O’Driscoll says it is not all about the money.
