Drew Darbyshire

England women’s second test against Papua New Guinea will be shown live by the BBC on Saturday morning. 

England won their first ever test match in PNG 24-10 in front of a crowd of 7,000 in Goroka last Saturday, with four tries from captain Emily Rudge.

And their attempt to complete a 2-0 series win at the Oil Search Stadium in Port Moresby will be broadcast live on the BBC Red Button, iPlayer and the BBC Sport website – as well as through the RFL’s Our League channel.

The match will kick-off at 5am UK time before coverage switches to BBC Two at 7am as Great Britain’s men face Papua New Guinea for the first time since 1996.

Both matches starting with the England women will be repeated on Red Button from 09:30am, and will be available to watch on iPlayer for 30 days.

There will also be highlights of the men’s match on BBC Two from 4:30pm-5:45pm, repeated 7:30pm-11:45pm on BBC Red Button.
