Lancaster was head coach when England hosted the 2015 World Cup.

While French President Emmanuel Macron was "too busy" to attend, Ireland's prime minister Leo Varadkar was in London and underlined the fact by saying: "I wouldn't have missed this for the world".

They say that an unprecedented investment from Ireland's government for the £120 million tournament fee, as well as financial backing from Irish American businesses, meant that they were confident they would guarantee the biggest profit for World Rugby, compared to the bids from other two hopefuls France and South Africa.

South Africa's bid delegation detailed how hosting the Rugby World Cup in South Africa in 2023 would be the most profitable to World Rugby since the inaugural tournament in New Zealand in 1987.

"So, rugby in South Africa is much more than a sport".

Pienaar was in London as part of the bid party yesterday and said: "Not in my wildest dreams could I have imagined the impact it would have on our country".

A delegation led by deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa made the official presentation in London on Monday to host the event.

And Lancaster, who has lived in Dublin for the past 12 months in his role as Leinster senior coach, says Ireland have presented an incredibly strong bid as they go up against France and South Africa. "We are very proud and the bid has the firm support of the government". "But what we are all sure about is (ensuring) that the principles and values of our hard-won democracy and constitution will remain stable and lasting".
