The Rugby World Cup board have officially endorsed the South Africa bid to host the 2023 Rugby World Cup. The recommendation by the board of Rugby World Cup Limited, a World Rugby subsidiary, is expected to be rubber-stamped, though.

"The comprehensive and independently scrutinised evaluation re-affirmed that we have three exceptional bids", said Beaumont in a statement.

A final decision will not be made until the World Rugby Council vote on 15 November, but it is considered unlikely that delegates will go against the recommendation made by the sport's governing body. That '95 World Cup is still ranked by many as the best ever, both for the emotion that surrounded the tournament and for its relative financial success.

The news will come as a huge blow to Irish hopes of staging the tournament.

South Africa's rugby chief executive Jurie Roux said: "A win for the game with record receipts, a win for the fans with an unforgettable tournament in a bucket-list destination and, most importantly, a win for the players with the most athlete-centric event in the tournament's history".

Manchester United defender Eric Bailly says that he is "fortunate" to play alongside striker Romelu Lukaku . They can boo the manager. "This is a logical outcome of evolution", said Mourinho.

The IRFU will be waiting anxiously for the 11am announcement‚ which is a crucial step towards winning the World Cup bid.

Vision And Hosting Concept Weighting (10%) 7.06% 6.75% 6.25%.

"We are 100 percent confident that the commitments we made in our document will be delivered. We will make all of world rugby proud of South Africa 2023".

Bernard Laporte, the president of the French Rugby Federation, believed it was now a two-horse race.

The intensive selection process determined a financial model and the viability of each country to host the tournament, as well as ensuring sufficient revenues to continue the development of World Rugby.

Three Children Killed, Six Others Wounded After Buggy Crash in Montcalm County
Three Amish children died Sunday when a truck crashed into a horse-drawn buggy they were riding in, Michigan State Police said. In that crash, an SUV collided with a buggy, killing a 10-year-old and injuring a 13-year-old.

"Remedying this gap will entail significant upgrade works and this introduces a level of risk that is reflected in Ireland's score, which is the lowest of the three".

"Regardless of the final decision it should not stop us from constantly being on the lookout for bringing large scale sporting tournaments to Ireland with Derry and wider region being part of those plans".

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

The Irish bid scored badly on the heavily-weighted "venues and host cities" criteria, probably reflecting concerns over a shortage of hotel rooms. Any bid that crosses the 20-vote mark will be awarded the 2023 World Cup. Sports minister Nxesi welcomed the news that South Africa was the preferred bidder at a media conference at South Africa's parliament building in Cape Town later Tuesday.

SA Rugby said it forecast another $80 million in profit for World Rugby from hospitality sales and savings on event costs because of South Africa's favorable exchange rate.
