José Manuel Diosa - Colombia Captain
The story is an example of the growth of rugby in the Americas - the only region which will never have hosted a Rugby World Cup come 2019. In such a short period of time the sport has grown tremendously and is in no way restricted to Argentina, Canada and the United States. It is a sport that is increasingly popular and has a huge future in both South and North America. The IRB should realize this and get behind the campaign for Argentina to host Rugby World Cup 2023 rather than take a step back by encouraging previous hosts such as Australia or South Africa to host again.
