The game is scheduled to start at 7:10pm (AEST) on Saturday, June 23 with the coverage finishing at 9:30pm.

Samoa and Tonga played out one of the most entertaining matches in last year’s Rugby League World Cup. The emotion and passion on display was a highlight and is sure to feature in Saturday night’s clash.

How to watch the match on TV

If you want to view the clash on TV, there are two different choices.

You can tune in to the game on Fox League (Channel 502). The pre-game discussion begins at 7pm and is expected to finish at around 9.30pm.

To view the coverage on Fox Sports, you will need to have a valid Foxtel TV subscription, which obviously includes the sports package.

Free-to-air viewers can also catch the game on Channel 9, whose coverage also starts at 7pm and concludes at 9:30pm. The match can also be enjoyed in high-definition on Channel 209 for Foxtel subscribers.
