NZ pip Australia to host Women's World Cup

Ireland coach Joe Schmidt Source

The agreement is based on a New Zealand programme that ensures top players are managed and given time off during Super Rugby.

World Rugby chairman Bill Beaumont said he felt the decision was global recognition for the obsession for rugby in New Zealand.

The five-time world champion Black Ferns outplayed the Wallaroos in both matches but their on-field dominance shouldn't play a part in World Rugby's vote.

Rugby Australia (RA) chief executive Raelene Castle, chairman Cameron Clyne and head of women's rugby Jilly Collins will proclaim the merits of a tournament held in the Hunter region of NSW, with the final to be staged at Newcastle's McDonald Jones Stadium. "We hope to welcome Australia back to bid again in the future".

Rugby League is proud of the length and strength of that association - Wembley Stadium has been the setting for so numerous greatest matches and memories in the game's history, with Catalans Dragons writing another chapter when they became the first overseas club to win the Cup earlier this year.


Palmer feels the timing would be ideal for New Zealand to win the hosting rights.

The country was up against Australia in a vote conducted by the World Rugby Council in Dublin on Wednesday.

"It's not very often we compete with Australia and think it's unfair to win but today was a day that could've gone either way", he said. It gives us a great opportunity in our time zone. "There are certainly learnings and we will go and review the process we have been through and make sure we focus and emphasis in the right areas".

"To be able to announce this news across all three competitions, three years before their respective World Cup Finals, demonstrates further progress for the worldwide game and we look forward to ongoing collaboration with the RLWC2021 organisers".

"I think it's also the overwhelming support we've had from the rugby community. It's on record that we are keen to bid for the men's world cup in 2027, so very quickly our focus turns to that".
