:lol:

Not being funny but even the folders that the SA bid put in looked shoddy.

Things in Irelands favour
- The bid itself is excellent, even the public material from the Irish bid far surpasses the quality of the other bids publically available material
- Ireland wants the RWC for the RWC, not as a dry run for other events

Things working against Ireland
- Brexit uncertainty
- the IRFU's historic attitude to the Rugby World Cup

Ireland are being quoted at 1/2 with France second favourites at 9/4 and South African outsiders. That's a big advantage in a three horse race and pre-match SA V Fr in Pretoria last weekend was full of knowledgible speculation about this contest with insiders saying it was Ireland's to lose.

Sorry for asking, when is D Day?

On a more serious note it seems Nov 15 2017 is the date FF is looking for.

From one of the sensible French journalists
"France Rugby Union is promising 400 millions euros to World Rugby. Will Ireland and South Africa outbid?"

Apparently LA is getting the 2028 Olympics, which means that Paris will be getting the 2024 Games. What effect this will have on IRB deliberations remains to be seen but wasn't there a view that they didn't want RWC being overshadowed by the Olympics?
