Former England coach Sir Clive Woodward believes that France will win the 2023 Rugby World Cup on home soil.
The 64-year-old was the mastermind behind England's World Cup success all the way back in 2003 and, in a column for the Daily Mail, he has now explained why he thinks Les Blues are the front-runners to win what would be their first Webb Ellis Cup in three years' time.
France take on Ireland in Paris on Saturday and victory could see them crowned Six Nations champions, though England are the front-runners to win the tournament given that they are level on points with France and taking on Italy, also on Saturday.
Woodward, however, has seen enough and he believes the French will be a force to be reckoned with in 2023.
