2014 Rugby League Four Nations TV viewing information: Channel 9 and GEM will be covering Four Nations games in Australia. The BBC are the official broadcasting partner in the UK and will cover games England play. All games will also be shown live on Premier Sports.

Overview: The last pool game of the Rugby League Four Nations will see Australia take on Samoa in Wollongong which is one hour drive south of Sydney. The decision to host the game in Wollongong was left field as the Pacific International at Penrith saw just under 10,000 turn up for the match. Having the Kangaroos play in Penrith would have seen the sold out sign go up weeks in advance due to the number of people who live in Sydney with Samoan links. 

Samoa have come of age in this Four Nations tournament. They have come within 6 points of getting over Engalnd and only within 2 points when they narrowly loss to the Kiwis. If Samoa were to beat Australia in Wollongong on Sunday it would be well deserved for a fantastic effort they have put in so far.

Australia on the other hand will need to rack up the points to try and qualify for the Four Nations final while praying England have the points piled on them by New Zealand. If the Kangaroos stumble they will miss out on their first major tournament final since 1954.
