Rugby League World Cup

Rugby League World Cup”

The Women's World Cup final will be played at Brisbane's Suncorp stadium on December 2.

"It will be a physical game against Australia and we are more than ready".

Jason Taumalolo, Andrew Fifita and Michael Jennings will all start for Mate Ma'a Tonga against Scotland on Sunday, while Konrad Hurrell to make his long-awaited debut in the centres. But Brown stressed that isn't the case, and instead it will based on a culmination of poaching players from other team sports, providing a strong governing body with transparency in how it runs and catering for the game like never before, whether it be under-7s mini-rugby on a Sunday morning or a possible World Cup final in 2019.

"There has been plenty of hype around the eligibility rules which have shown that the Rugby League World Cup 2017 will be the most competitive World Cup", Peponis said.

Italy admit they can't pay their players at all.

Toa Samoa captain Frank Pritchard is joined in the back row by former Australia worldwide Josh Papalii for their clash against New Zealand on Saturday night, while fullback Young Tonumaipea is selected for his first test appearance in three years.

"Rob wasn't really around the camp", said Burgess.

Jarryd Hayne also represented Fiji at the 2008 World Cup. 'The World Cup was at the back of my mind but I take things week by week because you don't know what's around the corner. I can tell you that they didn't go to any of the Pacific nations.

"While for some people that would be controversial - and some people certainly found negatives in it - I think for the good of the global game we want competitive teams and we want the best talent to be spread around those nations, as opposed to all playing for one or two". "We've got to find out what's the best way to go".

He claimed Pacific nations were locked in to play up to two Tests a year over the next four seasons.

Most pressing is the need to protect the game's battered leading players amid talk of strike action.

But after taking control of one of the most high-profile governing bodies in the world, Brown is confident that the RFU already have the right measures in place to ensure a similar scandal doesn't engulf the oval-ball game, though he did confirm that the FA's embarrassing episode has triggered a period of review among the RFU in order to retain full transparency.
