Rugby World Cup 2023 could be extended to allow more rest

The 2023 Rugby World Cup could be extended by a week to ensure longer rest periods for all competing nations.

Officials at World Rugby have held discussions with the global players’ union and tournament organizers about ways to maximize player welfare at the World Cup in France.

“This includes building on our stated commitment at the end of Japan 2019 to extend rest days for all teams and minimize overall travel load for participating teams, which is good for all,” the global governing body said in a statement to The Associated Press on Tuesday.

The full match schedule will be released by the end of February. The tournament is scheduled to run for six weeks, from Sept. 8-Oct. 21.

World Rugby believes extending it — potentially making it a seven-week competition — would improve the integrity and fairness of the tournament because lower-ranked nations would have as much recovery and preparation time between games as the top teams.

British newspaper The Daily Mail reported that squads for the World Cup could be increased from 31 to 33 players to also protect their welfare and allow for greater rotation.

The paper reported that a letter was sent Monday to the unions of competing countries by Alan Gilpin, World Rugby’s interim chief executive, in which he said the players’ union — International Rugby Players — believed “a minimum five-day rest period between all matches is a priority issue from a player welfare perspective.”

“Players will not tolerate the shorter rest periods for future tournaments,” Gilpin reportedly said in the letter. “We have therefore had to address this for 2023.”

Should that happen, Ireland will fall to at least seventh place, even if they defeat Italy, with a drop to eighth possible should Scotland beat France in Paris.

A qualifier each from Oceania and the Americas round out a competitive-looking pool D.

“It’s a great pool to be a part of,” England captain Owen Farrell said. “Obviously with the way that Japan and Argentina are going at the minute, some of the rugby that has been played over the last few years by them both, obviously it’s going to be a tough pool.”

World Cup holders South Africa will face Ireland as well as Scotland and an outfit from Asia/Pacific and a further European nation in pool B.

“It’s exciting, really, to know who your RWC pool opponents will be for the 2023 tournament in France,” Springboks captain Siya Kolisi said.

World Rugby vice-chairman Bernard Laporte said the global body was a leading example in the field across sports federations.

“We are a model union in terms of research, innovation and mastering this area,” Laporte said in a press conference afterwards.

“A lot of other sports want to do like rugby with our Head Injury Assessment protocol. It’s a major subject. The priority is the health and safety of our players.”

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, seeding levels for the tournament draw were based on the world rankings on January 1, 2020 instead of after the autumn internationals as originally intended.

The dozen countries from the draw will be joined by eight qualifiers, with the final lineup known by November 22.
