2013 RLWC Ticket information:

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: Papua New Guinea have been getting their house in order back at home and have implemented a high performance unit to assist them with their world cup campaign. Papua New Guinea last reached the RLWC quarter finals back in 2000 and will be looking to go one better in 2013. The Kumuls will be looking for a good performance against a star studded Toa Samoa team.

Papua New Guinea went down to France by one point in their opening world cup match which prompted Mal Meninga to write a letter to Kumul fans. The Kumuls are evenly match to the Samoan team and this is really any ones game. If PNG do manage to win they might just get through to the quarter finals.

Toa Samoa will be looking forward to a hard hitting match against the PNG boys. Samoa have been slowly getting stronger due to the increase in Samoan players playing in the NRL and Super League. Maybe this will be the year that Toa Samoa go one better than their quarter final finish in the 2000 RLWC.

Samoa put in a great 2nd half against the Kiwis last week. But rugby league is a game of two halves and the Samoans will need to play for the full 80 minutes if they are to register their first win and get into the quarter finals.
