Ireland Drift For Hosting 2023 Rugby World Cup
Rugby World Cup 2023 Host
Ireland’s hopes of hosting the 2023 Rugby World Cup have been dashed after they came last in the technical appraisal of the three host bids.
As a result of Ireland scoring 72.25%, finishing last in every criteria except for vision and hosting concept,
we’ve pushed Ireland right out to 12/1 from 4/6.
South Africa were unanimously recommended to host the tournament by the Rugby World Cup Limited Board to the World Rugby Council, seeing their odds shortening into 1/20 from 5/2.
France have drifted out to 10/1 from 10/3, after they finished second with a score of 75.88% to South Africa’s 78.91%.
Despite the official vote not taking place until November 15th, it looks as though it will be more of a formality that South Africa will host the tournament.
