This years tournament will be bigger than ever.
(PRWEB UK) 29 September 2013
The Rugby League World Cup 2013 is being hosted in England and Wales with the opening match pitting England against Australia at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff on October 26th. The competition will run for just over a month culminating in a finale due to be played at Old Trafford on November 30th.
Head of Operations at DSG, Matthew Tait had this to say, “This years tournament will be bigger than ever and played in some great stadia with huge amounts of support for the home teams which they are probably going to need against the likes of Australia and the holders New Zealand. In all Australia have won an incredible nine times and they will surely be looking to address the 34-20 final defeat to New Zealand in 2008 which ended a winning streak stretching back to 1975.
Rugby.co.uk will be following the tournament like no other site with news, live coverage, stats and features. England will be considered second favourites but do tend to under-perform at international level. They warmed up with wins against both Wales and France in June. Look out for Sam Tomkins, Kevin Sinfield and Rangi Chase. Australia are ranked as number one in the world with Slater, Thurston and Smith their star men. New Zealand are ranked as number two in the world and have strength in depth across many positions.”
Simon Boynton, Managing Director of DSG, believes that rugby.co.uk will provide a great venue for extended coverage of the Rugby League World Cup. "We have the perfect website and bundles of experience and enthusiasm for the 2013 Rugby League World Cup. Join us as we take you from the Millennium Stadium to the final at Old Trafford.”
