Live International Rugby League

England v New Zealand

England v New Zealand



The turnaround in Sam Burgess’s career is remarkable. This time in 2015, his ill-fated spell playing rugby union was coming to an end. “No matter what I did, I always felt I was fighting a losing battle,” he said at the time. It was a sour end to an experiment many in the sport never really embraced. Now, he is back in the rugby league fold – and captain of his country.

Burgess will lead out England in their first match of the Four Nations tournament against New Zealand, with Australia having already played Scotland.


England v New Zealand (Kick-off 2.30pm). Coverage of the match from the opening round of Four Nations fixtures, which takes place at John Smith's Stadium in Huddersfield. The hosts will look to emulate their performances of the three-match international series between these sides last year, when they claimed a 2-1 victory over the kiwis. Presented by Mark Chapman.
