Assuming the antipodeans actually bother coming... the schedule for next year's delayed Rugby League World Cup has been released. Basically it's the same as was planned for this year except all brought forward 1 week to avoid the start of the football World Cup. In the groupstage Australia v Fiji has been moved from Hull to Leeds, and New Zealand v Jamaica from Leeds to Hull - a QF due for Anfield in Liverpool has been moved to Wigan.

Scotland's schedule is:

Italy at Newcastle Falcons on Sunday 16th October (2:30pm)
Australia at Coventry on Friday 21st October (7:30pm)
Fiji at Newcastle Falcons on Saturday 29th October (5pm)


Making it out of group as runner-up would mean facing New Zealand at Hull on Saturday 5th November (7:30pm).

One of the games I have tickets for was the Anfield QF and was looking forward to seeing some rugby there, but I haven't been to Wigan's ground yet so that'll be a new stadium to tick off, so I'll take that!

We were well beaten by a far better team. Same old - indiscipline, daft penalties, gifting the opposition a fresh set of six, time after time. A needless late push on an opponent, unforced errors. Surely to goodness Dessie can see these self-inflicted errors and sort the needless stuff out. You can’t go away to the Premiers and give them any help.

That’s my tipping 0/1 and I was about to write the Raider doing their best to make it 0/2 after Sharks drop goal with 8 mins left but a converted try and Raiders 5 points in front with just over 3 mins left.

Great game at AAMI Park between the Storm and the Eels with HT 12-12 and FT 24-24 although if the Eels should have tried for a field goal with about 4 minutes to go Ryan Papenhuyzen wouldn’t have ended up scoring a try for Storm and equalising with his conversion 3 minutes from time.  Parramatta won it in golden point, in this case golden 4 points extra time. Mitchell Moses’ field goal attempt hit the post and Ray Stone chased the rebound and done his knee in as he scored his second and the winning try. Always good to see the Storm lose, especially at home.

Gold Coast Titans 22-4 ahead at HT in Canberra.

ETA: Some comeback in Canberra. Raiders 0-22 just before HT end up winning 24-22.

Turbo Tom Trbojevic is back from knee injury and has not only his older brother Jake but his youngest brother Ben playing today. DCE just ran about 60 metres to put the Sea Eagles 18-0 ahead but Wests Tigers have pulled it back to 18-10 with 30 minutes to go.
