Argentina is the only Rugby World Cup semi finalist to have never hosted a Rugby World Cup.
By 2023 Europe will have hosted four Rugby World Cup´s, Oceania three, Africa one, Asia one and the Americas zero.
You have my support Paul. Your site is great and it would be awesome to have the RWC in Argentina. Marcus
Its a great idea to bring the RWC to Argentina... after all if Japan can host the tournament then why cant Argentina being a strong rugby playing nation. This will also help in increasing the games popularity in South America.Paolo
It should happen. Luke.
nice site. Good luck for 2023, personally i think you guys would host a great tournament which would be amazing for promoting rugby in south america.
NZ, Sth Africa, Aust, Eng etc - not again. It's getting a bit boring if one of those get the 2023 RWC. Has to be Argentina - a mighty Football nation i.e. soccer - why not Rugby too?
you're not alone... look who's with you! http://www.canchallena.com/1409635-con-la-confirmacion-del-cuatro-naciones-pichot-ahora-va-por-un-mundialcome on argentina for 2023!
Why not use the somewhat smaller but modern stadiums in San Luis and Catamarca?Keep up the good work. I think (and hope) the battle of organizing the 2023 RWC will be between Argentina and Italy. The IRB is realizing they have to spread the gospel of rugby by giving other counties a chance at hosting.
They could both feature for sure. Both cities are sizeable and have adequate stadiums considering how New Zealand hosted Rugby World Cup 2011. They are not the largest cities though which would go against them. I am wondering about Catamarca though as a host city for a test match, maybe Argentina v Georgia in 2013.
I'm also a big fan of the Pumas so it was a nice surprise to come across this site...It's encouraging to see somebody calling for the World Cup to be held away from the traditional powerhouses of Rugby Union. Argentina has a rich Rugby tradition and it would be lovely to see the game's biggest tournament being held there. It would also help to gain Rugby Union more popularity in neighbouring South American countries.Keep up the good work!
habría que hacer algo para que tenga mayor repercusión para traer la copa del mundo acá.con esfuerzo y dedicación y con todos aportando un granito de arena seria más que posible
Fantastic blog Paul, if Agustin Pichot and the UAR with the support of the IRB success to insert The Pumas in the Murdoch 3 Nations.. seems nothing is impossible ... XD despite the URBA making noise at home, NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE HeheHope Pumas have a good years in Rugby Championship, to get a full member status in Sanzar and then, the RWC will be a logic step for Argentina and South America, taking in mind the economic growth of the region(average %6-%8 per year)So THANKS FOR THE PROMOTION OF THE RUGBY, Keep the good work!
A good site, well done. I've posted an article looking at the 2023 hosting issue:http://www.bcrugbynews.com/show_news.cfm?ID=678I've used a couple of quotes from your site.Mark
Hi, As a New Zealander who had to endure years of European rugby fans stating that NZ did not have the infrastructure to host a World Cup in 2011, whilst those same unions kept sharing games in pool and quarter final stages with neighbouring coutries, you certainly have my support with your campaign.

Great site. I hope Argentina won't have to wait too long to host the RWC. Think it might go to Europe again in 2023 (hopefully Italy) but then it should be Argentina's turn in 2027.
¡Hola, gente! Ojalá logren el Mundial de Rugby, se lo merecen. Traten de darle alguna sede a Uruguay, sea en Montevideo o en Punta del Este. ¡Mucha suerte!
What about Pablo Socino as a potential Puma? He has been picked as centre for the UK's Championship Dream Team - he's a class act.
Hello everyone!I support this amazing job for Argentina 2023, everyone in America is dreaming with this big moment!!!But in other matters, I want to share with you a bulletin about how Tier 1 Nations (basically European Nations) deal with the imminent development of Rugby in some other Nations and with the possibility to lose their "prestige".At some point I have the feeling that "Home Nations" are so stuck to tradition than to sport competition… and that’s a shame!!!http://www.sportsrind.com/?p=400
great site. awesome idea. 100% support from CPT, South Africa.Pablo
Che, querido. Linda pagina. La sigo hace rato y me encanta tu aporte. Puedo hacer una sugerencia? Por que no haces un articulo hablando del plan de la CBRu de Brasil de disputar el derecho de recibir el Mundial en 2023/2027 que lo tornaron publico hoy en Brasil? Saludos desde Tucumán!
Prezado Daniel,Segue o link:http://rugbyworldcup-argentina2023.blogspot.com.br/2011/10/brazil-to-bid-for-rugby-world-cup-2023.html Grande Abraço

thanks for the info Paul and keep up the good work. I think quite a few people follow your work even expats out here in Japan. Back to the match. I'm surprised Los pumitas didn't run up a ton!
