France to host 2023 RWC, Sth Africa livid

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.

The announcement follows SA Rugby's submission of a 827-page, 8.2kg bid book which included a commitment from the South African government to exceed the minimum guarantee of £120 million (R2.27 billion) required by World Rugby with an additional guarantee of £40 million (R757 million).

Controversy has surrounded bids to host other major sporting events recently and although the Olympic Games remains a secret ballot, Federation Internationale de Football Association has changed its rules to make the vote for the next World Cup an open one.

Ireland were eliminated after the first round when they secured eight of the 39 available votes to the 13 of South Africa and 18 of France.

France will host the 2023 Rugby World Cup after beating rival bids from South Africa and Ireland.

With Ireland dropping out, France beat South Africa by 24 votes to 15 in the second round.

"Maybe the only silver lining is that the last time the World Cup was held in France, we won it".

World Rugby chairman Bill Beaumont defended the council's decision, saying it wasn't a repudiation of the independent audit.

"The ability to submit clarification requests following the publication of the recommendation and comprehensive report on 31 October was agreed and permitted within the host selection process operated by World Rugby".

Argentina, Australia, England, Italy, New Zealand, Scotland and Wales had three votes apiece.

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.

"We feel the process has been absolutely transparent".

The four other unions, from Canada, Georgia, Romania and the United States, had one vote apiece. We worked really hard for this for six years.

"We are disappointed today but we can look back with pride at the significant time and collaborative effort which had been put into our bid and which proved that Ireland has the credentials to host a Rugby World Cup".
