After four weeks of competition and months of planning, the Rugby League World Cup will be decided tonight at Old Trafford in Manchester.


The Australian Kangaroos and New Zealand Kiwis will battle it out for the title, with the Kangaroos looking to avenge their loss to NZ in the 2008 World Cup final.


Kangaroos captain Cameron Smith says after six weeks on tour and all their training, it all comes down to this one game.


All that matters now is tomorrow nights 80 minutes, it doesnt matter whats happened in the past six weeks, and were ready for it, he said.


All the boys are really excited to have given ourselves this opportunity, and hopefully we can go out there and do the very best we can.





A capacity crowd is expected for the game, with great crowd numbers supporting all the teams throughout the entire competition.


Its going to be a very physical game, we caught a bit of their semi-final last week and the Kiwis came out firing, but the English stuck it to them and got on top of them in periods of the game, Smith said.


So what weve been doing well is playing for full 80 minutes, were not playing in patches, were playing the full 80 minutes, and thats what well need to do against the Kiwis.


Good luck to Dyldam Parramatta Eels star Jarryd Hayne who will be running out for the Kangaroos, were cheering for you back at Parramatta HQ!
