Preview – Rugby League World Cup Final: Australia v England

Rugby League Trophy
Rugby League World Cup trophy.

In a rematch of the first tie of the tournament, Australia and England take each other on to decide the rugby league champions.

Australia won that match 18-4, and are the current champions, so all the smart money will be on the home side to win. Not only that, but the English captain Sean O’Loughlin will be out with a quad injury. That, combined with the fact that this is England’s first final in 22 years mean the odds will be stacked against them. However, you can never tell what will happen.

Australia v England will be on BBC Two at 8.30 (kick-off at 9.00)
