SA Rugby Accepts Rugby World Cup 2023 Vote Outcome

Leaders of Ireland’s bid wrote to World Rugby last week to raise concerns

The final decision now rests with 26 World Rugby Council members who will collectively exercise 39 votes which among them a simple majority will be required to secure South Africa as the host Country.

England hosted the most recent tournament, in 2015, when New Zealand won a second successive title after victory on home soil in 2011.

Ireland were eliminated in the first round after receiving just eight votes and France won the second round against South Africa by 24 votes to 15.

South Africa hosted the iconic 1995 edition - which saw the first black president of the country, Nelson Mandela, adorned in a Springbok jersey, then seen as one of the pillars of white apartheid rule - handing the trophy to white South Africa captain Francois Pienaar.

Laporte toned down his cricitism after France were awarded the tournament, but admitted he believed there were aspects of the process he considered to have been unfair.

"World Rugby ran an exhaustive and transparent process for 15 months to identify the best host nation, only for the process to go entirely opaque for the past two weeks".

Ireland has missed out on hosting the Rugby World Cup 2023.

"We thank World Rugby for replying to our letter".

"In our letter, we had a great saying by Albert Einstein and here I paraphrase him: "There are a lot of things that can be counted which don't actually count and there are lots of things that count that can't be counted".

"Our feeling was that in a secret ballot people could vote for whoever they wanted without fear", World Rugby CEO Brett Gosper said.

"It will be for the next generation of SA Rugby leaders to decide whether to compete for the 2027 tournament or beyond", he said.

"A World Cup in Ireland would be a particular World Cup, something which fans round the world would have enjoyed", said Browne.

"We did everything in our power to bring the tournament to South Africa and we expected to have that right confirmed".

"We produced a compelling bid that earned the unanimous recommendation of the Board".
