OddsAustralia  4/5, England 1/1

After a shock defeat to Ireland, title contenders England will be determined to get back to winning ways when they face old rivals Australia in Melbourne.

England impressed in their opening win against Afghanistan, but in a rain-affected showdown with Ireland, the men in green came out on top with a five-run victory (DLS method).

There will be plenty of frustration in the Three Lions camp that they were not able to see out their innings in Melbourne against the Irish and they will be hoping to use that as motivation against the Aussies.

England should take heart from their recent T20 meetings with Australia, having won six of the last seven completed games and another victory to continue their good form against the Aussies is available at 1/1

OddsNew Zealand 1/500, Ireland 33/1

New Zealand and Ireland are set for their first ever rugby league meeting when they clash at Headingley in their final Pool C game.

The Kiwis are already assured of a place in the quarter-finals, while Ireland need to cause a major upset to have any chance of reaching the knockout stages.

With 102 points scored in their first two games of the tournament against Lebanon and Jamaica, New Zealand have been in free-scoring form.

Defeat for the Irish against Lebanon has left the Wolfhounds with a mountain to climb against a strong Kiwi side named for the trip to Leeds.

New Zealand are available at 10/11 to win with a -42.5 handicap at Headingley.
