Earlier today the Ashes kicked off – arguably Australia’s biggest sporting rivalry with England. But it’s not the only world sport that the two nations do battle in today. No! There’s also the Rugby League World Cup Final.
Australia have coasted through the tournament, whereas England were lucky to escape Tonga in their semi-final last weekend. It all comes down to just one more match tonight. Here’s where you can watch the World Cup Final live, online and free.
The Rugby League World Cup is a bit of a curious beast, playing with its format and amount of competitors up until the most recent World Cup back in 2013. Now, the tournament is scheduled to be played every four years, with the next tournament scheduled for 2021.
It is live on BBC One with coverage starting at 08:30 GMT, while there is also commentary on Radio 5 live. Both can be accessed via the BBC Sport website, which will have live text coverage of the match.
It is England’s first appearance in a World Cup final for 22 years, with the 1995 encounter ending in a 16-8 defeat by Australia at Wembley.
The last time a team from Britain won the tournament was in 1972 when a combined Great Britain team secured their third world title.
England captain Sean O’Loughlin has been ruled out after picking up a quad injury in their semi-final victory over Tonga, so Sam Burgess will skipper the side at Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium.
