All 2013 Rugby League World Cup games will be broadcast live and exclusive on 7mate (channel 73) in Australia. Following the success and popularity of the World Cup all matches will be replayed in full on 7mate later that day.

7mate is a FREE to air channel available to all digital compatible television sets.

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.

Links with schedules for Perth, Adelaide and Darwin can be found at the end of the article.

Whilst the standings in Pools A and B appear cut and dry and Pool D is confirmed with USA through to the final 8, the matches in those Pools will determine how teams head into the Quarter Finals with spots up for grabs in the Australia and New Zealand sides with respective coaches Tim Sheens and Stephen Kearning resting key players for this weekend giving all the players in the squad a chance to impress for selection.

France and Fiji can still steal second spot in their pools and change the likely format of the Quarter Finals. England will be nervous about any chance of facing Samoa in the Quarter Finals, which can happen if England or Samoa lose this weekend. If England were shock losers against Fiji this weekend they could end up facing Australia in the Semi Finals.

Tournament organisers would naturally rather England come 2nd in Pool A so England's Quarter Final is held at Wigan with the ground holding 25,000 compared to the capacity Warrington's Halliwell Stadium of 15,000.

Pool C is most interesting with Italy, Scotland and Tonga all in the frame for a Quarter Final berth against New Zealand at Headingley.

USA have been confirmed as Australia's opponents in the Quarter Final at Wrexham, but their Pool C/D match against Scotland could determine the outcome of the Pool C standings. Terry Matterson won't be taking the match against Scotland lightly looking to continue USA's unbeaten World Cup form leading into the battle against the might of Australia.

The 2013 World Cup so far has been a big success with record crowds so far at many venues and interest in the International renewed.

All results and links to match reports from the opening two weeks can be found below the TV schedule.
