The Rugby League World Cup takes place on October 23, 2021 and finishes on November 23, 2021.

Hosted in England this year, Australia are once again expected to take out the championship for the 12th time from 16 World Cups played, an unprecedented record in World Rugby League.

Australia took out their first title in 1957, and since then, only Great Britain (twice) and New Zealand (once) have defeated them in the Grand Final.

Sportsbet are not willing to take any risks with Australia getting the price, putting up odds of $1.28 for the dominance to continue.

As expected, the only two teams expected to threaten are on the second and third lines of betting, with New Zealand at $7 and England at $9.

Tonga is next best at $13 with $51+ available for the remaining 12 countries.
