Armed Forces results taken from GBAFRL Twitter page:-

 

GB 98 Serbia 0

 

Australia 32 New Zealand 22

So, GB v Australia in the final it is then!

 

As I said on Sunday, NZ are Serbia's best bet at getting some points on the board

Titterington relishing World Cup

England player Danielle Titterington believes England have the talent at their disposal to go all the way in the Women's Rugby League World Cup.
England begin their campaign against Australia at the Tetley's Stadium, Dewsbury, on Friday and Titterington feels this is the best chance England have ever had at picking up the trophy.
“I’ve been around the England side for a long time now and I truly believe that this is the strongest side we have had in my time," said Titterington.
"We’ve got a great coaching and management set-up off the field that have backed us all the way. That has improved us second to none and I think we’re in with a really good chance in the World Cup.
“I’ve played since 2000 and the difference in the team, skill level and knowledge of players across the Women’s game has increased massively since then and I think we have a great squad together."
Victory against Australia will see again take a huge step towards the Women's World Cup final at Headingley Carnegie Stadium on Sunday July 14 and Titterington is relishing the prospect of contesting the World Cup crown on home soil.
“Anyone that knows the Women’s game knows that New Zealand are the team to best but we all know that Australia are going to be a very strong side as well," she said.
"But the preparation we have had and the build-up we have had to the competition has been excellent. We’ve come close to them before and I think we can go all the way.
 “I’m from Leeds and it would be great to see a big crowd at the games as they’re all in the local area.
"There’s nothing better than playing for your country and to do that in your home town and win just makes it even more special.
“There are a lot of people around who haven’t heard of Women’s Rugby League but those that come to games have seen how tough and quick the game is and it’s a great sport to watch at this level. Anyone that comes to the World Cup will see that Women’s games can be just as exciting and tense as men’s games and hopefully we can be the first to lift that trophy."

Maloney loving life in the forces
#fowc2013


Former Dewsbury Rams, Featherstone Rovers, Barrow Raiders and Halifax player Dominic Maloney is aiming to become a World Cup winner on Saturday July 13 (2.00pm) as part of the Great Britain Armed Forces Rugby League squad.
Great Britain secured their place in the final after back-to-back wins over New Zealand and Serbia and having completed basic training just a few weeks ago, Maloney is hoping to complete a clean sweep against Australia.
"I've just completed basic training and it was very hard," said Maloney. "It's different to anything I've ever experienced before and really pushed me above and beyond my limits both physically and mentally.
"But the sense of achievement you feel when you get through that, push yourself and come out the other side is immense - you know you come out of it a stronger person and there's a lot of pride in that.
"That type of test can only be beneficial on the pitch as well because it's made me physically fitter and stronger and mentally tougher as well and that's all important on the pitch.
"The set up in Great Britain camp is excellent and as good as anything I ever experienced in the professional game. The standard of the game is very high and I was lightly surprised at just how high it is and I definitely think there are a few players in the competition who could go all the way."
Great Britain face Australia, who have also recorded victories over Serbia and New Zealand in the group stage and Maloney is relishing the prospect of completing a clean sweep over the competing nations on home soil.
"Growing up you as a Rugby League fans in England you always want to play against Australia and smash them," he said. "To actually do that would be something else.
"We had a great win against New Zealand and everyone is buzzing in camp. They were a typically physical Kiwi side but we can mix it with any of them and we got a good win so hopefully we can keep that going into the game against Australia.
"Every Rugby League player dreams of beating Australia in an international tournament at any level and of lifting an international trophy - that's within our grasp.
"Hopefully, we can pull it all off."
The Armed Forces World Cup Final at Colchester Garrison will be free of charge, but fans will be encouraged to make a donation to Services charities.

Wheelchair France set a new points record 154 and still 3 minutes to go.
FT FRANCE 154 SCOTLAND 2 France become the first side to qualify for the semi-finals with a victory every bit as resounding as the score suggests. Scotland have had a rotten draw facing two of the tournament's strongest teams first up.

Wheelchair half time Wales 10 Australia 4 Wales just have the advantage in a bruising compelling encounter. Australia got the first score, before Jon Dunn dived for the corner. The major talking point was Michael Knight grounding the ball after he had apparently been tackled, but the ref allowed the try to stand.
