England will stage the 2010 women's Rugby World Cup after seeing off a rival bid from Germany, the International Rugby Board (IRB) announced.

"The Rugby Football Union has considerable experience of hosting major international rugby tournaments, including Rugby World Cup," said IRB chairman Bernard Lapasset.

"With world-class facilities, strong tournament management and infrastructure and an extensive and enthusiastic support base for women's rugby, it is perfectly placed to host a memorable and successful Women's Rugby World Cup 2010."

The tournament was last held in Edmonton, Canada in 2006, when England were beaten 25-17 by New Zealand in the final.
