Set of Six: What you might have missed during Four Nations Final week

Kiwis meet Klopp, Australia visit Alder Hey, NRL stars work-out for NFL scouts, RLWC 2025 North America, Wolfpack signing and pre-season, and Chris Chester laces up the boots

 

The Kiwis meet Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool FC

Before the Four Nations Final, New Zealand visited Liverpool FC at the Merseyside club’s Melwood training facilities. Take a look below and check out Liverpool Manager Jurgen Klopp’s priceless reaction to the Haka.

Australia visit Alder Hey

During their time in Liverpool ahead of the Four Nations Final last week, the Australian Kangaroos visited Alder Hey Children’s Hospital and met inspiring youngsters. The Kangaroos had plenty of fun as you can see from the photo below 💪

Taumalolo and Holmes head to America for NFL testing

After the Four Nations Final, Australian winger Valentine Holmes and Kiwi forward Jason Taumalolo flew to America to prepare for their testing in front of NFL scouts which will take place on Saturday.

Dally M medal winner Taumalolo has been given the backing of his current NRL club North Queensland Cowboys to fly to the US and work-out for teams. The duo could follow in the footsteps of Jarryd Hayne, who joined the San Francisco 49ers but returned to the NRL after just one year in America.

Both the North Queensland Cowboys and Cronulla Sharks will be hoping they can hold onto the key players with bright futures ahead of them.

World Cup 2025 USA and Canada

The 2025 World Cup is heading to North America, this will be the first time the World Cup has been held outside of Australasia or Europe.

The USA and Canada were beaten to the 2021 World Cup by England, but have been awarded 2025 as Rugby League takes steps to grow in North America. The decision was made by the RLIF during an annual meeting in Liverpool.

Chris Chester plays for Sharlston Rovers legends

Wakefield Trinity head coach Chris Chester got the boots out for Sharlston Rovers in a fundraiser event. Chester was in the halves for Sharlston as they took on Crigglestone Old Boys.

Chester wasn’t on the winning side as Crigglestone were victorious, but it was a great day out. We wonder if Chris will be bringing the boots out for Trinity in 2017?
