RLWC 2017

The RLWC 2017 is all set to be the biggest and best Rugby League World Cup but it has a lot to live up after the successful 2013 tournament hosted by England and Wales.

With the quality of player and most importantly the depth of quality across all of the countries outside of the ‘big 3’ better than ever, there will be no easy games for any of the teams at the tournament which features some fascinating match ups including England’s first ever match against Lebanon.

The tournament kicks off in style with Australia and England but it is New Zealand who look to have the tougher route to the Quarter Finals with a group that features Samoa, Scotland and Tonga.

Papua New Guinea fill fancy their chances against the British duo of Wales and Ireland, especially with home field advantage in Group C whilst Group D looks to be the most competitive with all 3 teams going into the tournament with equally as good a chance of progression.
