#RWC2023 SA will most certainly bid next time, says Ramaphosa

France will host the 2023 Rugby World Cup after the Council of the sport's governing body went against the recommendations of an extensive evaluation report in a secret ballot on Wednesday.

"We can not hide our desolation but, for the sake of rugby we wish the 2023 tournament hosts every success".

The news comes as a shock, as SA had been recommended by World Rugby's Board but the council members voted for France.

World Rugby has announced that France will be the host nation of the 2023 Rugby World Cup.

"We produced a compelling bid document that earned the unanimous recommendation of the Rugby World Cup Ltd board". We wish them every success as they turn their attention to delivering an outstanding tournament.

So, they didn't even make it to the final round of voting where six more nations then sided with the French bid. "Sadly, the day is not ours, however I predict that there will be a lot of Irish people taking holidays in France in 2023". There had been a huge amount of money and time invested in producing a 139-page evaluation report that considered all aspects of the three countries bidding to host the event.

Minister Griffin added; "It's a disappointing outcome but it's very heartening to know that we provided a world class bid and that we could do so again".

South Korean forces have identified him only as "A" and said the man arrived in the country on Friday. The incident left three North Korean soldiers and one South Korean soldier dead.

"In 2023 it will be a diverse rugby team and prove to the world what Nelson Mandela said, that rugby is a great unifier".

But the former France coach was all smiles after securing the 10th edition of the tournament which began in 1987 when the sport was still amateur.

"The Rugby World Cup is such an important sporting event and the benefits of hosting it are substantial".

"For nearly six years we have focused passionately on bringing a Rugby World Cup to Ireland in 2023".

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

Schmidt's position and the IRFU's fight to overturn South Africa's advantage has run as far as chief executive Philip Browne writing a letter to World Rugby to challenge the independent process behind the preferred bidder recommendation.
