    Thumbs up Ireland to bid 2023 RWC

    That be really great, probably I'll already leave Ireland by 2023 but would be a great excuse to visit my friends here and watch a bit, ok a lot of rugby

    What do you think about Ireland chances?

    Chances? Two, slim amd none. Both hosting the world cup and winning it.

    P.S. Hands off Croke Park.

    It would be great if Ireland go to host the RWC but I think the chance are slim especially with England hosting in 2015.

    I don't think they would award it to us because we're "next door" to England. However, France hosted a few years ago so it might be our "turn".

    Ireland have a decent chance in next years World Cup, should at least make the Semi Finals I hope.

    Obviously I was thinking hosting only, as the current squad will retire by than, except few young players like Henshaw
    Good bye Ireland!

    Dunno, I think one of the bigger southern hemisphere countries might put in a strong bid: South Africa or Australia most likely.

    They would have the influence to make it happen I think.

    If you're not in you can't win!

    Am all in favour of the world cup potentially being held here. There was world cup pool matches played here before if I remember correctly.

    i hope they do too, but i think it will come down to if we can beat france in our group game. If we top our group then we avoid new zealand n the quarter final, and would probably play argentina instead. But as you said heres hoping. It would be great if we got to host the 2023 world cup.
