The Rugby League World Cup continues in the knockout rounds this week with four teams left in the competition vying for glory.


Hosts England remain firmly in the hunt following a clean sweep of victories in the tournament so far. In the semi-finals, they face a Samoan side they have already defeated 60-6 in their group stage opener.

All eyes will be on Australia's clash with New Zealand as the reigning champions face Oceanic rivals in the most hotly contested duel of the tournament so far.

There has been an obvious imbalance of quality between many of the nations involved, but the remaining contenders should provide some well-matched battles in the closing stages.

Australia remain the hot favourites going into the final four, but England – buoyed by blossoming home crowds – will feel they boast a real shot at dislodging the 11-time champions should the teams meet in a showpiece final. brings you all the details you need to know about the Rugby League World Cup fixtures, including kick-off times, dates and TV information.
