Australia will be aiming for an 11th Rugby League World Cup title when it faces arch enemy England at Brisbane Stadium Saturday night.
The Australians were convincing again on the weekend as they annihilated Fiji in the semi-final running out winners 54-6.
Wayne Bennett’s English side scraped through their semi-final 20-18 over Tonga in high controversy, as Tonga lost control of the ball just before they seemed set to cross for the match winning try.
England will be hoping to turn the tables from the last time these two teams met in the decider in 1995 when Australia triumphed 16-8.
Prior to the men’s final, Australia and New Zealand will meet for the third consecutive time in the women’s Rugby League World Cup final in Brisbane.
Defending women’s champions, the Jillaroos, have been impressive in the lead-up to the final winning the semi-final 58-6 against Canada, while the Kiwis also ran out convincing winners 52-4 over England.
Seven’s Rugby League World Cup Final coverage will be hosted by Jim Wilson along with Laurie Daley, Benji Marshall, Allana Ferguson and Mark Geyer. Mark Braybrook will call the men’s final with expert commentary from Gary Belcher and Brett Kimmorley on the sidelines. David Tapp will call the women’s final with Renee Gartner and Andrew Ryan.
