After all the fallout from World Rugby’s technical evaluation, we'll finally have an answer today, with World Rugby set to vote in London on who will host the 2023 Rugby World Cup.

South Africa are still expected to land the honour having been deemed most suitable by last month's report. However, with the constant public back-and-forth that has gone on between the various invested parties has come private lobbying and quarrelling that could still see one of Ireland or France land the job.


The decision will be streamed live on YouTube, with the stream set to go live at 1.00pm today.

There will be 39 votes cast. 20 is the number required to land the tournament. If 20 is not reached, the nation with the least votes is eliminated and there is a second round.

Members of the World Council vote in secret although they generally announce afterwards which nation they voted for.
