: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.

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?

This has been writing the headlines in French sports media for the past fortnight and is also dragging in questions about the composition of the Montpellier Squad.

Certainly it may impact on the French bid presentation, but it could also cause Bernie & Alrad some serious grief. Using image rights is always associated with tax evasion in French sport and is one of the big no-nos for the sporting public who think their stars get enough anyway. In France, few things are guaranteed to cause loss of support faster than the "reforming" President found 'cushioning his cave' with non-taxable earnings.

French PM pulling out of bud presentation is huge as is claiming RWC woule be dress rehearsal for 2024
When he spreads his legs like that youd need dynamite or the Highland Light Infantry to shift him.

World Rugby can’t have been impressed by comments made by Phillipe Folliot, president of Rugby Parliamentary Friendship Society in France who, while enthusiastically supporting the Rugby World Cup bid, described it as “a big dress rehearsal” for the 2024 Paris Olympics adding that it was a “chance to test security”.

Holy fup that's got to be the end of any rational discussion right there.

Looks like this has turned into an auction with France now offering an extra €35 million to host the tournament.

But if I understand it correctly France are estimating this based on projections and forecasts. The Irish bid is underwritten by Merrion Street and Stormont. That effectively makes the French bid aspirational, but the Irish bid as cast iron as you'll get.

The French government are also underwriting their bid. However, our mooted ticket prices are lower (which does not cause any financial loss for World Rugby) and our fans are more enthusiastic, which will lead to fuller stadiums.

Stormont can't even sort a budget out for health and education up here never mind pass one to underwrite a bid for RWC

Doesn't matter, if they write the cheque Downing Street pays.

France have involved Lomu's 2 sons in the bid http://www.independent.ie/sport/rugby/w ... 65535.html

Really poor form and a horribly cheap effort at sentimentality.

Lomus legacy deserves a lot more than that
He's gotten awfully fond of that brick
