World Rugby's technical review group released findings last month that Ireland's bid is the weakest of the three but many are hopeful that we'll come out on top.

France and the IRFU both foght to overturn South Africa's advantage and IRFU chief executive Philip Browne even wrote a letter to World Rugby to challenge the independent process behind the preferred bidder recommendation.

World Rugby Chairman Bill Beaumont said: "Congratulations to France on being elected Rugby World Cup 2023 host".

It was based on evaluations by the Rugby World Cup Board that looked at infrastructure, financial commitments and a variety of other mitigating factors.

"We can not hide our desolation but, for the sake of rugby we wish the 2023 tournament hosts every success". "Sadly, the day is not ours, however I predict that there will be a lot of Irish people taking holidays in France in 2023". That recommendation was questioned last week by rivals, but endorsed a second time by World Rugby last week.

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".

"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".

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. "When the Fifa World Cup was held there in 2010, we had a more than 20 percent uptake in players".

"While the players and their coaching teams continue to break new ground competitively, Rugby Players Ireland also strives to realise its vision that says: 'Ireland is the best place in the world to play rugby'". In that time we developed a world class proposition which reflected positively on Ireland and saw us formally acknowledged as a destination well capable of hosting a superb Rugby World Cup.
