http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/rugby-league/26253658 "The 2017 Rugby League World Cup will be hosted jointly by Australia and New Zealand." Good for the Aussies and the Kiwis, hopefully they can match the big crowds set in England last year. It was a good tournament in terms of excitement (unless the sadly untouchable Kangaroos were playing) and was easily the best tournament I can remember since 1995. South Africa were in the running but to send the tournament there would have been a very bad move IMO. Try playing an end of season international or ANZAC Day friendly there, not a tournament that could spectacularly bomb. Only another 3 years and 8 months to wait!
