RLWC2021 chief executive Jon Dutton said: "One of our main aims was to hold the most inclusive Rugby League World Cup of all time and I'm delighted that we have that confirmed".
"It's not very often we compete with Australia and think it's unfair to win but today was a day that could've gone either way", Tew said.
The All Blacks will play Australia and Argentina away, which is somewhat puzzling due to the fact they also faced a "2-away, 1-home" scenario back in 2015 when the tournament was last a truncated one.
World Rugby chairman Bill Beaumont congratulated New Zealand on their victory. "This will just give us an opportunity to do that".
"They both spoke very genuinely and directly to the councillors about the meaning of rugby in our country, the growth of the women's game and what it means to New Zealand to host these big events".
"This government is committed to more women and girls getting involved in the sport, so we are enthusiastic supporters of bringing this elite women's tournament to New Zealand and inspiring a new generation of women and girls to get involved in rugby".Читайте также: Canadian PlayStation Black Friday offers include new Spider-Man PS4 bundle
"I think that was certainly a significant contribution to some people's decision".
New Zealand has won the bid to host the Women's Rugby World Cup in 2021.
"We've really gained some momentum in the last couple of years and this would be the icing on the cake and this would truly show that we are world leaders and keen to develop the game in the Oceania region, do what we can to support the Pacific Island nations and really develop it in this part of the world". "We put a compelling case together and the presentation went well but unfortunately we didn't get the votes on the day".
"When you go through these processes you need to take stock and have a look and see. That's something we will be talking to World Rugby about". It will be the only chance the two teams get to size each other up ahead of Rugby World Cup.
New Zealand's pitch to host the six-week tournament received strong government support from Sports Minister Grant Robertson, and a personalised video message from Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, who expressed her delight at the outcome. "It's on record that we are keen to bid for the men's world cup in 2027, so very quickly our focus turns to that".
