« Australia’s hosting of the 2027 Rugby World Cup would bring visitors from all over the world to our shores, inject millions of people into the local economy and support thousands of jobs across the country

« Events of this magnitude have a huge impact on the entire economy – whether it is accommodation providers, tour operators, car rental companies, restaurants and bars or the retail sector
