The destination of the next five rugby World Cups will be decided by vote in Dublin on Thursday

FIVE RUGBY WORLD CUPS destinations will be decided in Dublin on Thursday, when the World Rugby Council cast their vote on the venues.

The next installment of the World Cup will take place in 2023 in France next year, but what's to come after that will be the main topic of discussion for the mens and women's editions.

England are favorites to host the 2025 Women's World Cup, while the 2027 World Cup looks set to take place in Australia.

The United states are also keen to host the premier rugby event in 2031 and 2033.

This move is seen as a way to grow the game in a country that has a poor reputation in regards to rugby.

America's president Joe Biden has endorsed the move with a letter which was part of material submitted ahead of Thursday's World Rugby Council meeting in Ireland, where a vote followed by a press conference to announce the respective hosts will take place.

USA international Nick Civetta will be long retired by the time the 2031 World Cup comes around, but he insists his current team-mates have a big role to play in America's bid.

The United States face Chile in a two-legged qualifier in July to decide who will qualify for the 2023 World Cup in France.

Civetta recently helped Oxford University to Varsity success at Twickenham and believes it is imperative USA are represented in France next year.

"As a player and as someone who wants to go to this World Cup, I think we have a massive role," he told the PA news agency.

"We still have to qualify this summer and we have to show World Rugby we are a serious outfit.

Covid was tough on the union, we went two years without a Test match and it absolutely killed our ability to develop players and to prepare ourselves properly for qualification for this World Cup.
