Kiwis, Aussies out of Cup


Neither the Kiwis nor the Kangaroos will contest the 2021 Rugby League World Cup tournament. New Zealand Rugby League (NZRL) and the Australian Rugby League Commission (ARLC) have confirmed that they will not send teams to the tournament in England, citing player welfare and safety concerns. The NZRL and ARLC informed the Internatio­nal Rugby League (IRL) and Rugby League World Cup (RLWC) organisers of their decision yesterday.
