  8. How does it work?

    The Rugby League World Cup takes place over 36 days, with 28 matches being played across 12 venues in three different countries.

    Groups A and B have four teams, from which the top three progress to the quarter-finals, while groups C and D have three teams, with only the winners going into the last eight.

    England are in group A alongside reigning champions Australia. Wayne Bennett's side will be looking to surpass their efforts at the last World Cup in 2013, where they bowed out at the semi-final stage in dramatic fashion.

    Scotland are in group B which also includes 2013 finalists New Zealand, while Wales will battle it out with Ireland and Papua New Guinea for the one qualifying spot available in group C.
