Australia face Fiji while England take on Tonga in the semi-finals of the 2017 Rugby League World Cup this weekend but who do you think will make the final?

The Kangaroos face the Bati in the first semi-final at the Brisbane Stadium on Friday. Australia are the tournament favourites but Fiji have scored more points than any other team in the World Cup so it is set to be a brilliant match.

Australia and Fiji have won all four games they have played so far and both teams have a number of outstanding individuals.

Meanwhile, England come up against Tonga at the Mt Smart Stadium in Auckland on Saturday in a highly-anticipated clash.

Tonga have been the surprise package of the tournament so far and made history a couple of weeks ago as they became the first ever Tier Two team to beat a Tier One nation in New Zealand.

England have also had an impressive World Cup campaign so far, losing to just one game, which was against Australia in the opening match of the tournament.

We are in for a treat this weekend folks but who do you think will reach the final? Let us know in the comments below.


  1. why continue with Gale in the match day team. ???? he is a good club player but NOT International standard by a long long way. Get Robey on from the start leave Hodgson on the bench otherwise it could be all over by half time.

    • It will be a close and tight encounter between Fiji Bati & Aussie. If Fiji Bati defence holds for 80 minutes, then expect another major upsets in this world cup
