World Cup Warm Up Recap

Plenty of Rugby League action overnight. Let’s have a look around and see what happened.

England Knights 28 – Scotland 4

Scotland struggled against the Knights (England A side).

Their only highlight coming through a try to ex-Roosters/Cowboys player Kane Linnett in the 60th minute.

Scotland kick off their campaign against Italy on Monday morning at 12:30am AEDT.

If you are keen you can catch the full warm up match here.

Tonga 48 – France 12

Great to see some of Tonga’s young guns shine in Amone and Koula in this as well.

You can catch the highlights here.

France’s first World Cup game is against Greece on Tuesday morning at 5:30am AEDT with Tonga against PNG the following day at the same time.

New Zealand 74 – Leeds Rhinos 0

Absolute domination here from the Kiwis.

Sebastian Kris standing out for the Kiwis with a hattrick in his first match for his country.

New Zealand take on Lebanon Monday the 17 at 5:30am AEDT

Bradford Bulls 34 – Greece 34

Plenty of tries in this one, with nothing able to separate them in the end.

Greece fought back from 22-12 down at halftime to get it back to level scores, with Souths’ Lachlan Ilias hitting the post on a last minute penalty goal which would have given them the win.

Wales 22 – Lebanon 38

Lebanon kicked on from leading 24-6 at halftime in this game, to take the win here.

Jacob Kiraz looked the goods at fullback, while Doueihi was strong as always in the halves. Add in Mitch Moses and the Cedars will be exciting this Cup.

You can catch Wales in action on Thursday morning at 5:30am AEDT against the Cook Islands.
