Roosters to Face Off in World Cup Quarter Finals as Women's Tournament Kicks Off

There will be plenty of Roosters on show this week in both the Men's World Cup quarter finals and the first week of the Women's World Cup! 

Eight teams will become four by this time next week, with the quarter finals set to kick off this Saturday morning when James Tedesco's Kangaroos take on a Lebanon outfit filled with a number of NRL stars. 

Tedesco Bursts Through to Set Up Yeo

Angus Crichton will be looking to add to his appearances in the green and gold alongside Lindsay Collins who earned a try on debut in the side's big win over Italy last week.

On Sunday morning Victor Radley will look to continue England's dominance in the tournament so far when the Lions take on Papua New Guinea, who feature a number of faces familiar to Roosters Members and supporters alike.

Following that match, New Zealanders Joseph Manu and Brandon Smith will be out to stop a Fiji outfit featuring some of the Club's finest youngsters in Siua Wong and Vuate Karawalevu, with departing veteran Kevin Naiqama leading the Bati.

Tupou's Hat-Trick Against Wales

The final match of the week - arguably the most mouthwatering - will see rivals Tonga and Samoa add plenty of fireworks with Daniel Tupou and Siosiua Taukeiaho taking on young Joseph Suaali'i for a shot at the Semi Finals.

The winner of Australia and Lebanon will face the winner of New Zealand and Fiji, while the victorious teams of England vs Papua New Guinea and Samoa vs Tonga will do battle against one another next week. 

That's not all though, with the Women's Rugby League World Cup set to kick off this week as well, with a contingent of Tricolours taking the field on the international stage. 

Radley Touches Down for England

Meanwhile, New Zealand will play France with Raecene McGregor and Mya Hill-Moana taking the field at 4:00am this Thursday, with the Club's NRLW Rookie of the Year Otesa Pule named as 18th player. 

Sam Bremner will co-captain the Australian Jillaroos in their first round match against the Cook Islands at 6:30am, with Isabelle Kelly featuring in the backline while Olivia Kernick will make her international debut in the second row.

Roosters Members and supporters will be able to watch every single minute of both the Men's and Women's Rugby League World Cups through Foxtel and Kayo.
