I doubt that Asians, Africans or South Americans will vote for Ireland. Neither will tier 2 Europe.

They only have the Home Nations, United States, Canada and perhaps New Zealand.

I think the technical committee is announcing a recommended bidder around 10th of October (don't quote me on that just rings a bell) it then goes to a vote. Its expected that the recommendation will win as the process was designed to try and stop/limit the horse trading of votes.

South Africa hosting the 2023 tournament is probably their best chance of qualifying at this point.

Yes, the torment of being just 3rd in the world and having lost just once this year. I think they will survive. :p

They would have to finish below 3rd in their 2019 group, which would require being beaten by Italy and either Namibia or the Repechage Winner.

Then, they would need to lose to Namibia AND the repechage winner to miss out on qualification to 2023.

If that happened, they'd be fondly reminiscing about the days when they were competitive against Japan for 80 minutes!

It could be a fair point for France. 4th in their group is not completely unthinkable (although extremely unlikely).
