Japan should host anyway, Rugby isn't going to grow globally by continually pandering to it's old boy's club.

Italy or Japan in 2015 - I wouldn't mind if South Africa then hosted in 2019.

I really hope that Japan gets to host the 2015 World Cup - it'll do wonders for the popularity and professionalisation of the game there. On top of that, Japan has some great stadiums in place from the 2002 FIFA world cup, and it offers great economic potential and access to Asia. Possibly suitable stadiums include:
Oita (41,000):

Fukuoka (24,000):



Kobe (34,000):

Chiba (20,000):

Saitama (63,000):

Sapporo (42,000):

Does anyone know what the minimum stadium requirements for a Rugby World cup are by the way?

2015 Rugby World Cup hosts

The four unions bidding to host the Rugby World Cup in 2015 will present details of their bids to the IRB in Dublin today.

England last hosted the World Cup in 1991 (and nine games in the 1999 event were played there), South Africa last held the event in 1995, and Italy and Japan are bidding to stage it for the first time.

Who would you like to see awarded the 2015 World Cup when the decision is made on 28 July?

I don't think it should be in the Southern Hemisphere twice in succession, and I'd like to see it breaking new ground, though I wouldn't complain if we had a World Cup in England.

I'm genuinely undecided - I think I'm going to have to wait for details of the four bids to be revealed.

I don't see the problem with South Africa - it's Southern Hemisphere but it's only two hours ahead of GMT, if I remember correctly, which doesn't really have potential effects for TV audiences and so on in the Northern Hemisphere. For that reason, I don't think the fact that SA is in the SH will have much effect.

My personal preference would be for Italy. The sport has been growing there for a while and I think it's a deserving host on that basis. It would do wonders for the sport in a country that has a serious chance of competing in the near future. Combined with general improvements in performances, compared to where they were ten years ago, and with two Italian teams joining the Magners League, this improvement should continue. Further interest in the sport, generated from hosting its largest event, could be excellent.

England last hosted the World Cup in 1991 (and nine games in the 1999 event were played there), South Africa last held the event in 1995, and Italy and Japan are bidding to stage it for the first time.

England are only bidding for the 2015 tournament, while the other three unions are bidding to host both.

Who would you like to see awarded the 2015 and 2019 World Cups when the decision is made?

Yes, you're right - my inital instinct was that it would make for a complicated poll, but there are only nine possible decisions.

I've created a new thread - can a mod merge the relevant posts from this one into it and delete?

I've thought about this a bit more.

I don't think Japan will get it in 2015, as that would be two tournaments in a row away from the lucrative European TV market time zone.

I don't think South Africa should get it again before England.

So England or Italy for 2015, and Japan or South Africa for 2019.

Italy then Japan would be two "developing" hosts in a row, which might be a bit of a gamble.

England then South Africa on the other hand would be a bit of a snub to developing nations.

General sentiment is that Japan got a rough deal last time, so I'm going to have to go for England then Japan rather than Italy - South Africa.

Though a World Cup in Italy would be great. Bugger it, still can't decide on an option.

SA 2015 would be a safe and very apropriate event. its 20 years since 1995 and the country will have all the infastructure ready to go from 2010SWC with only minor overlays needed. South Africa has a fanatical rugby following who fill stadiums and the tv times are the same as for europe. (my opinion is biased though) I would then like to see 2019 go to Japan as it could really grow the game there and they have many stadia from 2002 that could be used and they are probably the developing nation (with the infastructure to host) who could most benifit from the events.

Couldn't agree with you more. I think Japan will be much more ready by 2019, and this will give them some more time to grow the game. I'd like to see a new stadium in Pretoria by 2015 though, and it might be a good chance to use and upgrade some of the provincial grounds, like Kimberley, George and Stellenbosch.
