I don't know if this has been sorted yet. But I'm going to throw Alex ferguson out there. I'm no man it's fan, but at old Trafford, I think it would create a fair bit of media coverage and maybe add some celebrity faces to the crowd. I doubt we will get the queen, we are proudly (sometimes to our detriment) a working class sport. Any thoughts?

There is literally no-one living or dead who could present this World Cup without the usual bitching from fans of RL who probably won't even attend a single game of the tournament. So on that basis, sod prestige, I'll vote for Steve Prescott.

... providing Prescott is feeling well enough of course.

It should be presented by the head of the international federation, who and whatever that is.

Rolf Harris
Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

Kevin Ward - best player I have ever seen

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

Just to be clear, after winning the world cup there could be no better honour than getting to meet Scott Carter.

Wiggins would be a good one if we win, I'd do seething innovative like have 2 different potential presenters, one for both countries in the final. Check all famous rl fans from NZ , Aus & Eng now
Rugby League is a sport that desperately needs to expand its geographical supporter base and its player base. This imperative means that all other requirements are secondary until this is done.

All power in the game should be with governing bodies, especially international governing bodies.

Without these actions we will remain a minor sport internationally and nationally.

I don't care who presents it as long as it's Kevin Sinfield receiving it!

HRH Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.................. and if she can't do it, HRH His Majesty Prince Charles.

At least with that option, whoever wins the World Cup will have it presented by their head of state!

 

EDIT: Interestingly, 5 of the top 6 ranked RL teams have the same head of state!

Invite the Australian Prime Minister, Julia Gillard to do it, then when England win it she have to present it with gritted teeth, and Sinfield will have to use a crowbar to get it out of her hands.
