Maybe they just consider it to renounce two days before the start of the tournament?

Well this may be just another fun idea to promote something that doesn't exist somewhere. I don't think it's a good idea, and I really am thinking about what they are thinking. Wtf

only reason it makes sense for portugal is if that nation tries promoting rugby in an unorthodox way... a country without a developed women's XV program

perhaps portugal will create an XV

2021 must be in Oceania. All but one WRWC were in Europe... they need to change a bit, please.

"France & Portugal mull joint World Cup bid"
http://www.scrumqueens.com/news/france- ... ld-cup-bid

Nothing against Portugal, but if the proposal gets forward and the format of the tournament stays as it is, it will mean a nation actually caring about women's test rugby will be left out of WRWC in order to leave place for a host nation who hasn't played a game in two decades.

If Portugal are serious they about this then they have to reform their test team. Shouldn't be hard - base it around Sporting who have done well at XVs against French clubs and in the Iberia Cup.

I can't understand how could it work. Pool games in France (again? :| ) and semifinals plus finals in Portugal? Some pools and some finals in France, some in Portugal? It seems a bit dispersive, but, ok, let's wait and see

If the choice will be England it would be awesome if they played in Rugby School field, at least the pool games. With semifinals and finals in the not far Northampton or Leicester. Rugby School field is obviously not fit for a men's World Cup but it could still be adapt for a preliminary women match. At least so I think

A portoguese article highlighted by ScrumQueens
https://scontent-mxp1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/ ... e=5BC545F3

"In case of victory of the joined bid, Portugal would host one group while all the rest of the championship will evolve in France"
:? If so, it would be just an other World Cup in France, with a pool in Portugal to "make-up" it

And full stadia, an almost guaranteed surplus, and lower tournament costs.

But if Portugal do not form a XV and organise some games within the next few months I think its off the table.

NZ's bid is Auckland/Northland, with North Harbour, Waitakere and Whangarei (and Eden Park "available") https://www.nzherald.co.nz/sport/news/a ... d=12105069

Today is the World-Cup-venue annunciation day

Australia seems the big favorite, while New Zealand should be the only opponent left
New mechanism for the final phase: after the pools no more placing semifinals (for Cup, plate, bowl) but quarterfinals for the best eight teams, while the other four will be eliminated finishing their adventure

Probably I had already posted this somewhen in the past but I re-purpose this scheme (in italian) about the previous editions

NZ has won the BID, Congratulations to NZ in winning the rights to host, I hope this will help the growth of the 15s game world wide and at grassroots level.

It will be a nightly World Cup for us europeans.
Just a curiosity: the exact antipodes of Auckland are in southern Spain, in Andalusia, near the town of Ronda.

It could be a good idea.
And if we have not quite money we can just go to the city of Ronda in Andalusia and dig down until Auckland : )

Why the ARU opted for Newcastle as the venue is perplexing to me. You had enough small venues in both Sydney and Brisbane to cover the tournament but for some inexplicable reason they went with a location that takes 4 hours to drive from Sydney, 8 hours to drive from Brisbane, and has no international airport. I knew they weren't serious about this tournament when Newcastle was announced as the venue.

Newcastle actually has an airport (although international apparently only to Auckland) and its region has 620k inhabitants. That's over 100k more than Wellington's region. Having been on a hop-on-hop-off-bus from Cairns to Sydney some years ago, I have to say, that this is a good location for a road-trip through Australia. Start in Brisbane or Cairns and see more of Australia while slowing moving down to Sydney. Watch some Rugby on the way in Newcastle.
Wikipedia tells me they also have a railway with two trains per hour to Sydney, which takes 2:35 hours and costs under 20€.

To be fair, I can actually see why they chose it. This WRWC will be something special for them. Hope they pay it back with great crowds.

Look at the world ranking in July. Teams ranked 1-10 have to play one team from 11-20 (they don't play in a regular competition) away the next year. 11-20 play 21-30 away and so on. Yes, it really is that simple.

Well...New Zealand won the bid...so it won't be that special for Oz.
