Good luck to them. If the NRL has its way they will be able to have this one.

NRL probably already drafting a proposal that the Australians get fast tracked and only fly over for the semi finals stage, to take place 2 weeks after the NRL GF, with their opponents playing their Quater Final the day before. Otherwise, the integrity of the NRL Christmas party will be severely imperilled.

Good luck to them, hope it’s over there. They’re noises from France the past twelve months have been very positive, long may it continue and let’s hope it wakes up the Rugby Football League Working Men’s Club committee.

Not sure anywhere else is going for it so surely the RLWC is ‘coming home’. 

Indeed, MoK!  Apparently, the first rugby world cup, in France in 1954, only went ahead after the Aussies received assurances about their travel costs being met by the hosts.  Perhaps they will try this again this year and also in 2025, in which case we English speakers have a phrase for it - 'deja vu'!

Fantastic news. Agree with the post above that it’s maybe 4 years too early but it’s great to see a ‘new’ place bid for it to stop the Aus/Eng cycle.

It might be perfect timing in regards to getting government support. Let's hope so.

Great news but we would have to ensure that France wouldn't be embarrassed by a strong qualifying group and failed to qualify.

Easy, put them in a group with the Aussies and schedule the game for mid-November. Vingt quatre - zéro
