End of the Rugby World?

A statement by The Rugby World Cup Limited (RWCL) said they had "unanimously recommended to the World Rugby Council the selection of South Africa as Rugby World Cup 2023 host".

All three competing bids have been forensically reviewed by World Rugby's Technical Review Group and have in turn been scrutinised by independent body The Sports Consultancy.

The French and South African bids both leaned heavily on the extra money they could generate, and guarantee, to World Rugby.

World Rugby released a bid evaluation report on Tuesday, and said South Africa was the unanimous pick.

South Africa hosted the tournament in 1995 - when the Springboks lifted the Webb Ellis Cup on home soil.

World Rugby's Council is expected to rubber-stamp the recommendation on November 15 - though it could still opt for any of the three bids.

The vote will comprise a total of 39 votes, with a simple majority required to select the Rugby World Cup 2023 host.

The recommendation was made following a comprehensive evaluation report which was published today.

Equally, they can also abstain, choosing not to vote. Japan will host the next tournament in 2019.

Ireland's hopes of securing the 2023 Rugby World Cup and a mammoth £1.3bn economic boost have been given a huge blow in the announcement of the formal endorsement decision.

The SANZAAR and Six Nations Unions, aside from South Africa, France and Ireland, all have three votes each. These are individuals and unions who have reacted positively to our message and vision for the tournament, as we criss-crossed the globe over the past two years.

Ireland has vowed to "compete to the final whistle", adding "nothing in the report is insurmountable".
