England’s rugby league World Cup dreams has ended in heartbreak as Australia edged an incredibly tense 6-0 victory in what many is calling the closest final the sport has seen in decades.

As Australia is crowned for yet another record breaking 11th world crown, let’s not forget the shear strong-willed performance England had produced that would surely inspire the next generation of players for the next world cup. On that note, we bring the 2017 Rugby League World Cup to a close – and welcome you back here again in 4 years for the best ways to stream the next Rugby League World Cup in 2021!

Update: 28 November 2017, Tuesday
England survives a dramatic Tonga revival to reach the Rugby League World Cup final! Read more from The Guardian. In what has been 22 years in the making, England will finally go head on against long time champions Australia on 2 December at 09:00GMT.

Update: 22 November 2017, Wednesday
With just 3 more matches to go, England have one last shot against Tonga this Saturday to reach the Finals for the first time since 1995. If history is telling, Australia might eliminate Fiji for the final run which will put them head to head with England for an epic finale!
