South Africa recommended to host tournament

The IRFU will be waiting anxiously for the 11am announcement‚ which is a crucial step towards winning the World Cup bid.

The issue here is why World Rugby would employ an independent technical review group to forensically examine all three bids and then go against the findings.

South Africa was given a 79 per cent score on how it closely it met the board's five key criteria of vision and hosting concept, organisation and scheduling, venues and host cities, tournament infrastructure as well as finance and commercial commitments.

"The comprehensive and independently scrutinized evaluation reaffirmed that we have three exceptional bids but it also identified South Africa as a clear leader based on performance against the key criteria", World Rugby chairman Bill Beaumont said.

From the above criteria, South Africa ranked highest with 78.97%, France second with 75.88% and Ireland third with 72.25%.

"This nomination is confirmation of that belief and reward for an outstanding bid in which no detail was too small to be addressed or any question not comprehensively answered", told South Africa Rugby chief executive Jurie Roux to AFP. "We will make all of world rugby proud of South Africa 2023". Football, handball, rugby, France has shown for many years that it knows how to organize events.

Laporte added that "it's only a recommendation, and certain presidents of federations will vote for us".

Ireland has vowed to "compete to the final whistle", adding "nothing in the report is insurmountable". There were fears in South Africa that the aborted Commonwealth Games hosting might adversely affect the Rugby World Cup bid. A lot of political capital had been invested in the bid - which had cross-border support from all the Northern Irish political parties and even British Prime Minister Theresa May throwing her support behind it - with Prime Minister Leo Varadkar coming to London for the final presentations last month.

The intensive selection process determined a financial model and the viability of each country to host the tournament, as well as ensuring sufficient revenues to continue the development of World Rugby.

"We absolutely believe Ireland can secure the tournament for 2023", he said.
