Australia's Quarter Final clash against the USA will be LIVE on 7mate (digital channel 73) late Saturday night with coverage commencing at 11.30pm (AEDT) and 10.30pm (QLD) with kick off 30 minutes later.

All the Quarter Final matches will be broadcast LIVE on 7mate in Australia with full replays of all the matches.

Australia is expected to cruise past the USA in the Quarter Final clash to be played in Wales. Daly Cherry-Evans has been included in the Australian squad ahead of Robbie Farah and it will be interesting to see how Tim Sheens utilises him on the field at the same time as Cooper Cronk, Johnathan Thurston and captain Cameron Smith. The USA have fought against the odds to make the Quarter Finals with no doubt tournament organisers expecting Wales to qualify top for their pool with this clash set down for Wrexham.

The South Stand and Carnegie Stand at Headingley have been sold out for the New Zealand v Scotland Quarter Final with Leeds Rhinos officials confident of a crowd close to the 18,000 reached last week when the Kiwis defeated a gallant Papua New Guinea outfit. Scotland finished above Tonga and Italy in the hotly contested Pool C group and deserve their place in the final 8. Halves Danny Brough and Peter Wallace have provided a good calming influence on the Scotland side with fullback Matthew Russell in superb form. The Kiwis have won their three matches by big margins, but have enjoyed the big match atmosphere with all three of their matches being played in front of near capacity crowds.

England's clash against France at Wigan's DW Stadium is expected to draw a capacity crowd of 25,000 and England have been building up nicely during the World Cup despite a first up loss against Australia and off-field distractions that saw Gareth Hock and Zak Hardaker dropped from the England squad and James Graham suspended for one-match. England's second half against Fiji was most impressive after a challenging first half and are expected to beat France to setup a likely Semi Final showdown against New Zealand.

The Samoa v Fiji clash should be one of the highlights of the 2013 Rugby League World Cup. Samoa have been very impressive throughout their pool matches including a brilliant second half display against New Zealand in the first week of the tournament. Fiji defeated Ireland in the opening match, competed against Australia in patches in their second match and dominated England for much of the first half. The winner of this clash will more than likely meet Australia in the Semi Final.

With the time differences, the fixtures below are a guide of what times the matches will kick off in NSW/ACT/VIC (AEDT) and also Queensland (QLD). 7mate's coverage starts 30 minutes prior to kick off times.
