Organisers should take the World Cup to the USA in 2027 if theygenuinely want to increase the game, says USA head coach Gary Gold.
The USA face Tonga in their Pool C game on Sunday, following defeats by France England and Argentina.
He says Japan, on the verge of attaining this quarter-finals for the very first time, are the ideal illustration of why tier-two countries should host the championship.
For us, Japan really are still an incredible role model for so many reasons, said Gold.
Australia, argentina and Russia have bid to host the championship in eight years time, with the USA expected to join them.
Gold, who has worked in Japan, states being awarded the World Cup gave the Brave Blossoms the stage to delight in their championship in 2015, if they won three games, such as a shock win over South Africa.
They have climbed to an all-time greatest rank of eighth in the world.
This is why I feel very strongly that if World Rugby really do want to grow the game, since they claim they need to, then USA need to be a competition for the 2027 Rugby World Cup, added the South African.
Four decades later, for them to become quarter-final contenders is a fairytale come true.
It is something that could be done, but it was largely off the back of these having been awarded a Rugby World Cup.
