    Tournament Pools

    With 11 teams already confirmed, the final three teams will come from the European Qualifying Tournament to be played in October and November this year.

    The pool structure reflects that of the successful 2013 Tournament. The composition of the pools for RLWC2017 were shaped by a number of considerations, including the final placings from the 2013 World Cup and current world rankings

    Pool A: Australia, England, France, Lebanon
    Pool B: New Zealand, Samoa, Scotland, Tonga
    Pool C: Papua New Guinea, European Qualifier 1, European Qualifier 2
    Pool D: Fiji, USA, European Qualifier 3

    Only 2 games in NSW (no finals), Darwin gets a quarter final, no games in Adelaide and shock horror Brisbane get the WCF.

    2 games in NSW (both in Sydney) compared to 8 (including 2 finals) in Qld.

    It's a pity that they couldn't get the rest of the free-to-air rights from nein too.

    A short sighted draw that makes this event a non NSW one. Shame really opportunity missed should be games in western Sydney for the island teams.
