South Africa will get 2019 RWC: 2015 will take place in Europe.
Scotland is the best choice if we admit that England will get FIFA WC 2018.

The 2015 and 2019 bids won't be won on technical merit alone. RSA needs to lobby, make promises, swop votes etc.

Perhaps supporting England for 2019 in return for votes for RSA 2015

England have threatened to pull out of the bidding process because of the huge price the IRB are demanding the host union pays.

Personally, I'd like to see Italy host in 2015 (until they entered the bidding I wanted Japan) and South Africa in 2019.

2015 must go to Japan or the game will never go global!

I hope italy gets 2015 and japan 2019. I want japan to get a super 14 (or whatever number it ends up) team before they host the world cup.

After seeing the new stadiums being built in Durbs, Cape Town, Nelspruit and Joburg, it would be insane for SA to not get the 2015 games.

Not really. If we don't lobby and bribe enough stadia could mean very little.
Also remember that the IRB is setting a minimum revenue guarantee so the bid that offers the highest amount is more likely to win.

Wikipedia on the other hand does make a South Africa bid sound great.

"The strengths of a South African bid would be that it is in the same time zone as Europe the wealthiest television market, that they are the current World Cup holders, that they previously hosted the tournament with great success and that they are currently in the process of building a whole series of new stadiums for the 2010 FIFA World Cup."

If it comes down to guaranteed revenue I could see the bid going to the Cherry Blossoms.

France 07 was the best world cup and is the perfect location as the french are great at showing-up for neutral games when it comes to them, and the british are great travellers.

Why not use that and let the south of France support a spanish and later italian bid. perhaps even regional bids.

2015 (north) Spain- (South) France: major venues at Barcelona, Madrid, Bilbao, San Sebastian, Zaragoza, Lyon, Toulouse, Marseilles

2019 South Africa, as they will have the stadiums and crucuially it keeps the cup in the european time zone.

2023 (north) Italy - (south) France: Milan, turin, Genoa,Lyon, Marseilles, Monaco and perhaps even include swiss venues in Grenoble and Lausanne.

If there's a Spanish offer undoubtely Valladolid must be a venue, there are a 30k stadium and two teams in our Rugby League

This question is obsolete. A Rugby World Cup collides with the home fixtures of Barca. And I don't think that they would anyone allow to ruin their pitch.

What about Japan for Rugby WC candidate? To the extent of my knowledge, rugby is quite popular there

Rugby is popular there. The Cherry Blossoms are getting better too.

Logistically I have no doubt Japan could handle it.

People would show. The Japanese love big events, and the big countries fans would travel.

France 2007 was not a great World Cup. They should never stage world cups in multi nations.

Australia 2003 still was the best World Cup and captured the nation.

The major improvement to make to future World Cups would be to reduce the number of teams to 12. 20 is ridiculous.

In my opinion the Rugby World Cup should be rotated between Europe and the rest of the world. For example:

2011 New Zealand
2015 Italy
2019 Japan
2023 England
2027 South Africa
2027 Celtic Nations
2031 Argentina
2035 France
2039 Australia

I can't think of any other countries who could host it...
