Some great news for fans of the game with Australian internet provider BigPond showing the World Cup Qualifiers live through their Rugby League TV service.
With Australian fans deprived of coverage of these games, this is a great way to be able to see some important contest over the next month or so.
Ireland, Samoa, Scotland, Lebanon, USA and Wales are still in the running for the last places in the World Cup. A place in the World Cup will mean a lot for all of those nations.
Its a refreshing change for Rugby League to have this type of coverage for its massive online fan base. Normally because of restrictions and such things most people are shut out from seeing online converage of games.
