Jon Wilkin reveals where the next World Cup should be held

There is a lot of talk at the moment about the 2025 World Cup and where it should be held after France pulled out.

On Sky Sports yesterday, Jenna Brooks revealed the five countries interested in hosting the tournament.

She said: “New Zealand have put their names forward alongside Australia, South Africa, Fiji and Qatar.”

Meanwhile, Jon Wilkin has now spoken about where he would like to see the tournament go.

“It would be very left field. I fancy Fiji. What a place that would be.

“New Zealand and Australia are obvious choices but the pacific islands is a hot bed and could do with the economic boost of the tourism that would come with the World Cup.

“I would push for Samoa, Tonga, Fiji and Papua New Guinea to host the tournament. It is something I would enjoy.”

In recent years there has been a major resurgence in the sport in the pacific started by Tonga in the 2017 World Cup and reaching the semi-final.

Then in 2022 we of course saw Samoa reach the World Cup Final with some of the best players in the world.

These teams can kick on even more if the World Cup is taken to this part of the world.
