Anfield to host Four Nations final


Anfield will host this year’s Four Nations final, the first rugby league match for 19 years to be staged at the home of Liverpool Football Club.

England, Scotland, New Zealand and Australia will contest the tournament, which begins on Friday, 28 October.

The final will take place on Sunday, 20 November.

The Olympic Stadium in London has also been chosen as a venue, with England taking on Australia in the final group match on Sunday, 13 November.

Rugby league has been played at Anfield only twice: the 1991 World Club Challenge game between Wigan and Australian champions Penrith, and St Helens against Castleford in Super League in 1997.

“Playing at iconic venues such as Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and Anfield is one of the reasons we play the game,” said England captain Sean O’Loughlin.

“Walking out in front of 45,000 fans in London last year was one of the highlights of 2015 for me and I am sure that playing in front of big home crowds will push the team on to what will hopefully be a successful campaign.”
