I've now decided (this morning) to leave work a couple of hours early and drive to Colchester to cheer on the Serbs. And GB, of course!

So despite checking the website earlier today and seeing that the first match kicks off at 5, it kicked off at 4. Which was apparently the kickoff time all along because that's what's printed in the programme

The 2013 Festival of World Cups Finals Day, which sees the Women’s, Students and Police Rugby League World Cups conclude in an action-packed day of Rugby League, will be screened free-to-view on Premier Sports on Thursday July 18.
Finals Day takes place at Headingley Carnegie Stadium, Leeds, on Sunday July 14 and Premier Sports, the official broadcast partner of the Kingstone Press Championships, will be in attendance to record action from the three games to be screened on Thursday July 18, 9.00pm to 11.30pm, alongside highlights of the Wheelchair and Armed Forces World Cup finals which conclude on Saturday July 13.
The broadcast will add to Premier Sports’ already extensive coverage of Rugby League which will see them showcase over 250 games during the 2013 season including all 28 Rugby League World Cup 2013 matches this Autumn.
“We are delighted that Premier Sports will be showcasing the Festival of World Cups Finals Day on their platform as it is sure to be an entertaining and exciting day of Rugby League,” said Festival of World Cups Director Julia Lee.
“Premier Sports have built a strong relationship with the Rugby League community over the past few years and it is a fantastic result for the players involved in all three games from Finals Day to know that the action will be shown on Premier Sports.”
Premier Sports Executive Producer Neal Coupland said: “At Premier Sports we are delighted to once again showcase games from across the Rugby League community.
“The Festivals of World Cups is a great concept and the perfect way to compliment Premier’s coverage of RLWC 2013 in the Autumn which will see all 28 games screened live on the channel.”

Great news that we will be able to see a recording of the Festival of World Cups finals day along with highlights from the wheelchair and police world cup comps.  There have been some massively lopsided games so far in all the comps but also some closely fought affairs.  It's a shame that there hasn't been more support from rugby league fans at the games themselves though.

Magic from Harry (but not Potter) ensured that England wil get the chance to defend their World title against France in Saturday's Wheelchair Final. The sparkling Harry Brown scored 7 tries including one sensational effort where he jinked the length of the field to help England to a comfortable 81 10 victory over Australia. France will start as marginal favourites for the Medway Park final, in What is likely to be a tight game.

Not there for Tuesday & Thursday this week but was at opening day & last Saturday and the England games at least at the Wheelchair event was sold out. Other games attracted a decent attendance & some very appreciative spectators.

Fiji through to Police RL World Cup final

Police Rugby League World Cup holders Fiji have secured their place in the Police World Cup final at Headingley Carnegie Stadium on Sunday July 14 (11.30am).
Fiji reached the final after an emphatic 72-0 victory of Great Britain on Thursday night to set up a title deciding showdown with Australia, whom they lost to earlier in the competition in a brutal 32-24 contest.
Australia will be confident of wrestling the title away from the Fijians having beaten both them and Great Britain in the round robin stages and former Leeds Rhinos star Scott Donald will be particularly keen to ensure his return to Headingley is a triumphant one.
