The Rugby League World Cup 2017 (RLWC2017) Organising Committee (OC) today announced the tournament draw for next year’s Women’s Rugby League World Cup.

With the support of the NSW Government, the Women’s Rugby League World Cup 2017 (WRLWC2017) pool matches and semi-finals will be played at Southern Cross Group Stadium, the home of 2016 NRL Premiers the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks. The WRLWC2017 final will be played as a double header with the men’s final at Brisbane Stadium on 2 December 2017, through support from the Queensland Government.

Pool A features reigning World Cup winners, Australia, taking on England and the Cook Islands.
Pool B has New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and Canada vying for progression to the semi-finals.

The tournament draw will see the three pool rounds played as triple headers on Thursday 16 November, Sunday 19 November and Wednesday 22 November respectively, with the semi-finals to be contested as a double header on Sunday 26 November 2017.

RLWC2017 Chief Executive Officer, Andrew Hill, said the anticipation surrounding the WRLWC2017 reflects the growth of women’s rugby league and the tournament draw supports what will be an exciting event.

“Interest in women’s rugby league has never been greater and we want this tournament to provide a platform to showcase these world-class athletes and inspire others to follow in their footsteps.

“The two pools are evenly matched and lends itself perfectly to exciting rugby league. Having multiple games on the one day at Southern Cross Group Stadium will create a real festival of rugby league for teams and fans alike.

“We look forward to welcoming the six competing teams to Australia as they vie for the title of 2017 Women’s Rugby League World Cup winners.”
