England Rugby League Betting

To have bucket loads of ability and talent and to be called up by your country to come and play for England in any kind of capacity is the childhood dream of nearly every schoolboy up and down the land. It is a dream that is shared by so many but in reality actually only achieved by so few. Those that are chosen to represent England know that when they pull on the England rugby league jersey that they are in an extremely privileged position. They also know what it means to the army of English supporters and more importantly what is at stake in every single game of rugby that they play for their country.

Four Nations

The 2010 Four Nations tournament was won by New Zealand after they mounted a second half comeback against rivals Australia. The tournament featured the giants of international Rugby League; Australia (nicknamed The Kangaroos!), New Zealand (the Kiwis, however do they find these names!) as well as Papua New Guinea (Kumuls) who, ranked 6th in the RLIF World Rankings, are no pushovers.

2013 Rugby League World Cup

Despite being a couple of years away the 2013 Rugby League World Cup will be well worth the wait as it will take place in the United Kingdom (this will the England's fourth time of hosting the event as the sole host, the fifth if you count 2000's joint hosting with France) and with it new blood and excitement to the game, the last time it was hosted in 2008 it was won by an excellent New Zealand side.

The very name of England can cause fear in the hearts of even our toughest opponents. As such from 2008 the team of Great Britain was dropped and replaced with just England, to allow all the home nations to be able to compete as individual nations during the World Cup.

The England squad is coached by Steve McNamara and captained by the Warrington Wolves prop Adrian Morley. They are currently ranked third in the world, just behind Australia and New Zealand, which of course is very good company to be in. However, as the game is as English as fish and chips it would be magnificent to see a return to form for the English Rugby League national team and to get some much needed silverware back in the trophy cabinet.
