SABC to broadcast 2023 World Cup Rugby announcment

France to host 2023 Rugby World Cup

It's confirmed: Ireland miss out on 2023 Rugby World Cup to France

The report, widely criticised by both France and Ireland, the third bidding country, was not binding on the remaining members of the World Rugby Council, who voted in London. We've embedded the stream below but you can also click this link to access the stream directly.

The World Rugby Council will on Wednesday announce who will host the 2023 Rugby World Cup.

World Rugby voted in London this morning and the decision was made to award the hosting of the World Cup to France.

That earned a rebuke from World Rugby, which closed all feedback with the bid candidates last Friday. That invention involved William Web Ellis catching a ball during a game of football and running with it.

Moscow promises tit-for-tat response to pressure on Russian media
The bill will pass to the upper house which is expected to quickly rubber-stamp it next week before it goes to Mr Putin. On Wednesday, Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov said it was premature to discuss the perceived "harshness" of the law.

The report found that South Africa is the favourite to win the bid.

South Africa vice-president Cyril Ramaphosa, one of the architects of the relatively peaceful transition from apartheid, said a 2023 World Cup in the country would serve as affirmation of much of what the late Mandela stood for.

"I would urge all South Africans to wear their Springbok jerseys or something green and gold this Wednesday - to show their eagerness and excitement to welcome the Rugby World Cup back to South Africa". "We hope that sanity will prevail because an independent process is there for a very specific reason - to keep it independent".

The chief executive of the IRFU, Phillip Browne, went as far as to write a letter to World Rugby outlining his grievances.

Taylor Swift's 'Reputation' sells a million copies in four days
Reputation , which is the 27-year-old Swift's sixth studio album, is also her fourth to sell a million copies in a week. She's already passed up Ed Sheeran , whose newest album, ÷, sold 919,000 copies, for the top-selling album in the U.S.

And Beaumont could yet play a role in the vote, if it's tied, as the tiebreaker. It was targeted at council members and pointed out that as all three bids were judged to be excellent, ignoring the consultants' recommendation was hardly a giant leap. The most important voting process will be conducted in a secret ballot on Wednesday, 15 November 2017.

Were the votes cast in public?

"There are six points where we have been placed behind South Africa, two of which are not possible", Laporte told AFP.
