Has it been confirmed we'll get two on the BBC at this stage - in recent times we've been knocked down to just one per round before the quarters - but the BBC are showing one less stage, so perhaps we'll get two games to make up for it?
I agree the Wakey/Leigh match will be on Sky
Aye, it's been confirmed that there will be 3 matches shown
Wasn't that floated as an idea because the Russians (and/or someone else?) didn't like playing sides stacked with heritage players? Not sure that was ever practical really, and I suspect there would've been more, and potentially louder voices arguing against it. The only way to have a completely level playing field is to run a comp based entirely on domestic or homegrown players - something the RLWC is never likely to be.
I just think that as long as the team that qualifies is broadly similar to the team that plays in the WC, that's fine
