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: This game is shaping up to be the game of the Four Nations series. In the 2013 RLWC New Zealand scored in the dying minutes in the World Cup semi-final against England. England where minutes away from booking a ticket to the World Cup final against Australia. The final score England 18 New Zealand 20. England will be looking to right a wrong and also book a place in the Four Nations Final.

If New Zealand win they would have gone through the Pool rounds undefeated. Depending on the other results a win to the Kiwis might also knock England out of finals contention and see them take on the Kangaroos in the final. This match will be the most important of the tournament to date.

England are looking to book their place in the Four Nations final. The English side have a good record against New Zealand and would fancy their chances of taking out the 4 Nations tournament if they can get over New Zealand this week. Anything less than a final appearance for England will be a major let down for English fans.
