Rugby World Cup 2015

After 2011, lets think to 2015.

I think that a celtic bid (Ireland with assistance of Scotland and Walles) could be a good idea. Japan or Canada would be greath too.
England is the front runner but can England host Olympics 2012, Rugby World Cup 2015 and World Cup 2018 ?

Umm ... I think a joint Celtic bid would do it for me. The British Isles but not directly England.

Who do you think will/should host the 2015 Rugby World Cup?

Now that we know that New Zealand will host the 2011 World Cup, who do you think will win the rights for 2015?

I honestly don't know.

I feel it ought to go to a non-traditional country. Perhaps Japan, Argentina or USA/Canada.

Having said that, the lure of profits will be very strong so England or SA will be in with a great chance. By that time SA could well be in the 6(7?)Nations.

Scotland has no chance BTW. grounds are poor quality and crowds, even for high profile internationals are bad. Remember the 1999 RWC games at Murrayfield?

when was the last time England held it? we are probably have had the longest wait to hold it out of all the major rugby countries but maybe it should go to a non traditional country. I'd say Italy since 2011 is in the Pacific.

England were main hosts in 1991, although 25 of the 32 games were held in France, Ireland, Scotland or Wales, and hosted 9 of the 41 games in 1999 when Wales were the main hosts. They bid to be sole hosts in 2007, but were beaten by France, who agreed to let Ireland, Scotland and Wales host games.

Most people agree that the two best World Cups to date are the ones hosted by a single union, i.e. South Africa in 1995 and Australia in 2003.

England could be a good choice...but I don't think England will host OG 2012, RWC 2015 and WC 2018. Scotland is too small to host all the RWC by itself: I hope about a "celtic bid" with Scotland, Ireland and Wales.

That'd be 6 votes sewn up in an instant. For 2015 the Saffies can forget about getting any votes from developing rugby nations so a Celtic RWC could be a very good possibility.

Japan would be a great way to expand the sport in non-traditional areas. It's not been in South Africa either (or Scotland)...

yeh back in 95 was great for us in South Africa! I agree with the comment that best WC's are those held by one union. The biggest problem i have is the constant sharing that goes on in the uk/france. By wales hosting it, all the other nations got a finger in the pie...so too with france 2007...it kinda kills the atmosphere of the competition and also secures the WC for the uk/france on a much much more regular basis than need be.

I was a supporter of Japan for 2011 (i know i should support my home SA, but u gotta move the game on). I was deadly disapointed that its going to NZ, for i dont think that will do any good for the game. I hope they can pull it off...but i'm having doubts....supporting infrastructure will be a prob i feel.

But thats not the point of this forum. In 2015 i think Japan will stand a good chance. they will have bidding experience and a better time frame to work on their grassroots rugga. I dont think italy will be an option, for i can see that leading to a co share with the uk and france, which wont serve any good.

The US seems posible, but unlikely, for the game is hardly widespread, and distances to travel for venues will be vast....and since the RWC aint on the same scale as soccer, it will be lost in the host nation and the atmosphere wont be conducive to a successful games.

I would love it to travel to Argentina...that should be another potential bidder...

I do feel that SA will bid again, for by 2015 it would have been 20 years since we hosted it....thats a long time....so our turn would have to be coming soon...

England or Australia to host. Possibly Japan if they start improving.

They probably will if they get Eddie Jones to lead them.

Scotland, because apart from England they are the most passionate about the sport, and England has too many sporting events going on in the next decade anyway.

It should go to Japan this time, indefinitely! If England, Australia, South Africa, New Zealand, keep hosting the events, how on earth will they expect the game to reach a greater international presence? Japan is the ideal country to host such an event! It would bring huge fame to the game, and the Rugby world would finally have a new country to its list. Get out of the square you all live in! It's about time the game was branched out somewhere else!

RWC 2011 will take place in New Zealand.
So, I think that RWC 2015 should take place in Europe: England, Celtic bid or maybe Italy. I'm sorry for Japan, Canada, USA or Argentina but they will probabilly have to wait for 2019.

Its too easy to just want it in Japan.

The problem with Japan is empty stadiums. They didnt fill venues for the football world cup so what will happen with rugby.
The british teams will no doubt bring huge numbers of fans but how many others will
There is not a lot of globalising in playing games in completly empty stadiums. I would say there is a very big chance that not only most games but even a big game like nz v saf could be played in front of far from capacity crowds and that will really hurt the cup.

I would give it to Japan if they adress this issue.
