2017 World Cup draw completed

England have been drawn in a 2017 World Cup group with Australia, France and Lebanon with games in Melbourne, Sydney and Perth.

The full World Cup draw was made today with Pool A consisting of England, Australia, France and Lebanon, and Pool B consisting of New Zealand, Scotland, Samoa and Tonga.

Pools C and D will include Papua New Guniea, Fiji, USA, and three European nations yet to have qualified.

NSW has been just two matches, with two of Lebanon’s pool games to be played in Sydney.

Organisers have defended shunning NSW when allocating next year’s Rugby League World Cup matches, saying it came down to state government willingness to pay.

The quarter-finals will be played in Darwin, Christchurch, Wellington and Melbourne.

The semi-finals will be in Brisbane and Auckland, with the final at Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium.

Christchurch, Wellington, Melbourne and even Darwin will host quarter-finals before semi-finals move to Brisbane and Auckland.

Papua New Guinea will play each of their three group matches in Port Moresby.

Tickets for the tournament will go on sale on October 27.
