Tough Draw For Ireland As Rugby World Cup Pool Draw Made For France 2023

France 2023.

Ireland have been drawn alongside world champions South Africa and Scotland for the 2023 Rugby World Cup in France.

The men in green were drawn against Scotland back in 2019 too and managed to defeat their Six Nations rivals before a shock defeat to Japan saw them finish second in their pool.

A very special British & Irish Lions House of Rugby show – fronted by Sean O'Brien and Alex Goode – is available now and will run for the duration of the tour. Follow and subscribe to it HERE
