2013 RLWC Ticket information: http://www.rlwc2013.com/tickets

2013 RLWC TV viewing information: Channel Seven will broadcast all RLWC2013 matches live in Australia on the 7mate channel. In the UK the BBC will show all England games along with the RLWC Final while Premier Sports will broadcast all other RLWC games.

Overview: Australia will once again be going into the 2013 RLWC as favourites to win the tournament. They will want to reclaim the title of world cup champions after losing to New Zealand in the 2008 RLWC final in Brisbane, Australia. The Kangaroos have dominated the rugby league world cup tournament having won the world cup on 9 occasions (1957, 1968, 1970, 1975, 1977, 1985 – 1988, 1989 – 1992, 1995, 2000). This match will be used to fine tune the team as they head towards the 2013 RLWC quarter finals.

Australia got off to a flying start with a win over England in Cardiff. The Kangaroos will be looking to continue that winning feeling when they come up against Fiji at St Helens.

Fiji will  meet Australia and be hoping for a different outcome to the last time the two teams played each other in the semi-finals of the 2008 RLWC. The Fijian’s have a very strong line-up that came away with a win against Ireland the week before. The Bati will be hoping the Kangaroos have had a night on the kava before taking the field at Langtree Park in St Helens.

The game will be a battle for top spot on the Group A Table with both teams with one win each leading into this match.
