Following an historic win against the All-Blacks, the Chairman of Ireland’s RWC 2023 Bid Oversight Board, Dick Spring, formally announced Ireland’s entry into the ‘Candidate’ phase of the selection process to determine the host for the 2023 Rugby World Cup yesterday.
The IRFU has already secured the 2017 Women’s Rugby World Cup for Ireland, with the semi-finals and the final to be held at Kingspan Stadium and both the Northern Ireland and Republic governments will work together in the year ahead with the IRFU to ensure an even bigger tournament arrives on these shores.
