Rugby World Cup 2023 Announcement, 15 Nov

Today, World Rugby has announced that the 2023 World Cup will be hosted by France.

The report, widely criticised by both France and Ireland, the third bidding country, was not binding on the remaining members of the World Rugby Council, who voted in London.

France has also been critical of the report for containing "blatant errors".

"This could really put the Irish Rugby Football Union (IRFU) in the shop window when people are voting on Wednesday", Schmidt said in the wake of Ireland's fine victory over South Africa.

The country has large, ready-made stadiums already available for the World Cup, while most of those contained in Ireland's bid are smaller.

"They do not impact on the detail or outcomes of the evaluation report nor on the subsequent recommendation".

Despite the criticism, South Africa remained in the driving seat this week, with Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa returning to London to lead the South African delegation, which also included sports minister Thulas Nxesi and Alexander.
