Road to the Rugby League World Cup Semifinal
Shaun Wane’s England team continued their calm progress throughout the competition. It advanced to the semi-finals with a resounding victory over Papua New Guinea at the DW Stadium in front of the watching Princess of Wales. Samoa, led by Matt Parish, who recently defeated Tonga in front of a raucous crowd at Halliwell Jones Stadium, will be their next opponent.
Samoa is expected to present a far more challenging test than they did at St. James’s Park on October 15th. Therefore, this will be the second time the two teams have met in this competition. Now, on Saturday, November 19, at 2.30 p.m. at the Emirates Stadium, the winner will advance to the final at Old Trafford. The coverage on BBC One begins at 13:45.
On the other hand, Friday, November 11, promises to be an exciting matchup at Elland Road.
A rematch between Mal Meninga’s defending champions and Michael Maguire’s New Zealand, who won the tournament in 2008, is set to take place.
Australia defeated Lebanon 48-4 in their quarterfinal match at the John Smiths Stadium. Josh Addo-Carr scored five tries to bring his tournament total to eleven. After being defeated by Fiji at the same stage of the competition in 2017, New Zealand got their own back with a spectacular comeback victory in perhaps the tournament’s best game to this point.
“It has been a wonderful weekend of rugby league,” said Jon Dutton, CEO of the Rugby League World Cup 2021. “We had nine games across the men’s, women’s, and wheelchair tournaments, and The Princess of Wales paid a visit to Wigan.” It was a magnificent occasion enjoyed by all concerned and lifted the sport to new heights.
To reach the Rugby League World Cup semifinal of the men’s competition is a huge accomplishment, following years of hard work and the surmounting of enormous obstacles. It’s going to be a great pair of games, with four great teams competing for a spot at Old Trafford’s final.
