WATCH: Rugby World Cup 2023 Host Announcement Live

Here we go.

The host of the 2023 Rugby World Cup will be announced live at 1pm today, with Ireland, France and South Africa set to battle it out.

World Rugby’s technical review recommended that South Africa host the showpiece event, but the latest word is that all three nations are very much still in the running.

There are 39 votes to cast, which means we could end up with one nation having the majority, two nations tied with the most votes, or a three-way tie. Should one of the nations get a simple majority (20 votes) in the first round of voting, they will be the confirmed host of the 2023 Rugby World Cup.

You can watch the announcement live below from 1pm.
