Ireland will NOT host the Rugby World Cup in 2023.

A vote of the World Rugby Council has recommended France to stage the tournament.

Although Ireland were not expected to win the bid, the selection of France has come as a surprise.

It's after an independent report for World Rugby had recommended South Africa, with Ireland finishing last.
