Day 2 of the Rugby League Nines World Cup will see both the men’s and women’s trophies handed out at the end of a hard-fought day of competition in Parramatta. Join The Roar for live scores and coverage of each match throughout the day from 11:30am (AEDT).

Day 1 saw all 12 men’s, and four women’s teams in action, with some shock results setting things up for a thrilling second day of action, where each team will play two games throughout the course of the day, before the men play a pair of semi-finals, and both gender have a final.

While Australia look the best team in both tournaments after the opening round of matches, there is still plenty of water to pass under the bridge at Bankwest Stadium before champions can be crowned in each competition.

In the men’s tournament, it was Australia who beat New Zealand in the key match of the day, taking the lead of Pool A in commanding fashion, with David Fifita, Wade Graham and Josh Addo-Carr setting the stage on fire with their respective performances.

The top two teams from the group go through to the semi-finals however, so as long as the Kiwis can get the better of Papua New Guinea, who beat the United States of America, they will still make the final four.

Pool A went more or less as expected, although Lebanon beating France could be classed as a surprise, however, with England hammering Wales, they are going to be incredibly tough to stop if the Cedars are to play knockout rugby league.

While Australia, England and New Zealand all appear set to play semi-finals in the Nines, it’s unclear what might happen with Group B.

Following the Cook Islands stunning upset of Tonga, and Fiji’s loss to Samoa, the group has been tossed on its head, with Tonga, in particular, needing a huge Day 2 if they are to go through.

On the women’s side of the tournament, it’s Australia who hold the inside running, and it would be suggested that they will meet the team they beat yesterday, New Zealand, in this evening’s final.

Great Britain look like they may be able to hold a candle to the Ferns, however, it’ll take a mighty effort from the Lionesses to go close when push comes to shove.
