That's my question as well.
Apparently with the recent Lions tour, some people had to stay in Australia and fly to the games as there wasn't place to stay in the host nation, others had to stay in cities hundreds of miles away. This was 20 000 fans, what are they going to do with 100 000?
I know it isn't fair, NZ has been the best for years - (they just have the same ability to choke in WC in rugby as we have in Cricket
), but unfortunetely I do not see NZ's infrastructure able to handle the amount of people that will be visiting.
Then there is also the time zone issue, as most of the Rugby playing countries is in Europe, again, not fair, but apparently these things count a lot for the IRB.
