Ireland Receive Massive Rugby World Cup 2023 Boost
High praise from the boss.
World Rugby chairman Bill Beaumont described Dublin as an “exceptional host” of the Women’s Rugby World Cup, that had created a “special atmosphere”, and looked forward to the next phase of games in Belfast.
“This has been a very special Women’s Rugby World Cup on and off the field and Dublin has certainly played its part as an exceptional host,” said Beaumont.
“From the facilities to the excellent fans and superb volunteers, there has been a special family atmosphere.
“As we look to Belfast and the business end of the tournament, I would like to thank everyone involved in delivering a wonderful event in Dublin, the IRFU and Government, but especially the fans and volunteers, who have been outstanding.”
Comments such as these, will serve as a massive boost to Ireland as they look to secure the rights to host the men’s Rugby World Cup in 2023.
Ireland are currently locked in a three-way battle with France and South Africa, with a decision set to be made in November.
