1960 World Cup Snapshot - Great Britain hosted the World Cup for the first time in 1960. All the games took place in rugby league strongholds in the north of England.

Matches were well attended with the game between Great Britain and Australia determining the World Cup Champions. In a spiteful match played on a muddy Odsal oval, 32,773 spectators turned out to see Great Britain defeat Australia 10 - 3.

No final was played and Great Britain were declared World champions for the second time.
