France has been officially awarded the right to host Rugby World Cup 2023 ahead of Ireland and France in London on Wednesday.

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.

Speaking today, the Taoiseach said: "I am of course deeply disappointed by this result but I wish France the very best in their preparations for Rugby World Cup 2023".

"This is the fourth successive time we have bid for the tournament: this is not a "nice-to-have" for rugby in South Africa - the opportunity to recapture just some of the spirit of 1995 has been an obsession for us".

It was between Ireland, France and South Africa.

"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".

"It was a bid for all of French rugby. The set of rules were broken during that process, which we are upset about", he said, offering a few opaque comments of his own. 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.

"Despite playing in places like Auckland and Dunedin, it felt as though we were the home team as all of the Irish in that part of the world seemed to come out and support us".

Japan, the 2019 Rugby World Cup hosts, carried two votes along with the six regional associations.

"It will be for the next generation of SA Rugby leaders to decide whether to compete for the 2027 tournament or beyond", he said.

"We are bitterly disappointed at this decision and would like to apologise to the people and government of South Africa for raising their hopes", he said.

"We produced a compelling bid document that earned the unanimous recommendation of the Rugby World Cup board".
