Rugby World Cup 2023 France

This would be our 5th rugby world cup and this time we had planned to tour from Spain in KEN. The world cup organisers had not really supported the motorhome community and despite writing to the organisers and local rugby clubs in the area, there were no specific facilities laid on for motorhomers – a bit disppointing after the experience we had in France 07 and New Zealand 2011.

We had planned to stay at campsites (not close to the grounds), but somewhere we could safely leave KEN on match days. We hoped we could meet up with fellow supporters who would share taxis back with us from the game.
