Who will win the 2023 Rugby World Cup?
After South Africa won the 2019 Rugby World Cup in a hugely exciting tournament, we look ahead to the 2023 Rugby World Cup which will be held in France and see who are the tournament favourites.
South Africa will go into the tournament as big favourites following their success in the 2019 tournament. They will host the British and Irish Lions in 2021 which will give them a chance to prove that they are the best team in the world going into the next world cup. If head coach Rassie Erasmus stays on, the South Africans will be very confident of their chances. New Zealand are historically one of the best teams in the world, they’ll want to rebuild before going into the next world cup after a disappointing campaign saw them finish 3rd in the 2019 tournament. Coach Steve Hansen will have moved on, so they’ll have to appoint a very good coach if they are to replace him.
Wales finished this year’s world cup in 4th place after losses to both New Zealand and South Africa consolidated their 4th place finish. Coach Warren Gatland is leaving the job and his successor Wayne Pivac has a lot of work to do to keep Wales in the running. However, with many talented youngsters coming through, Wales could be serious contenders to win their first-ever World Cup in 2023.
England finished 2nd in this year’s tournament after being blown away by South Africa in the final. They have many reasons to be positive however after big wins against Australia and New Zealand, they’ll be desperate to build on this in the next 4 years. There’s talk of coach Eddie Jones extending his contract with the Nation which would be huge for their chances going into the next World Cup.
Australia had a disappointing 2019 tournament after losing to Wales in the group stages, they were knocked out by England in the quarter-finals. Coach Michael Cheika resigned after the disappointing tournament which could give the Australians time to rebuild as they look to do better in the 2023 tournament.
Other countries that could spring a surprise in the 2023 Rugby World Cup are Ireland who have never gone past the quarter-finals of a World Cup, France who will have home advantage this time around and have looked dangerous in the past and Japan who played extremely well in the 2019 tournament.
Rugby World Cup 2023 will be held two years after World Handball Championship 2021.
