USA/Canada to submit joint bid for 2023 Rugby World Cup The article states that Russia have already bid for 2023 and that USA/Canada may have more luck in 2027. Hold on there, chaps. That'd potentially mean: 2015 - England 2019 - Japan 2023 - Russia 2027 - USA/Canada I think it's great to have the showpiece of the game held outside it's traditional heartlands, but not three RWCs in a row. There should be rotation - NH, SH, Other, NH, SH, Other - not potentially 3 in a row outside of the heartlands. It'd be great for rugby to expand, but expansion should not be to the detriment of current fans/countries.
