Last weekend saw the finale of the domestic competitions for another season; but that doesn’t mean the Rugby League action stops, as we now turn our attention fully to the International games. The Pacific Cup got underway last week, but now it’s time for England to return to the pitch as the three-game series with Tonga gets underway!   

Here is how you can catch all the action this weekend:

Saturday 21st October

New Zealand Women vs Tonga Women- 3:45am Sky Sports Arena 

New Zealand vs Samoa- 6:00am Sky Sports Arena 

There are two games for the early birds on Saturday morning. First we see New Zealand Women take on Tonga Women in what promises to be a great match. Afterwards, the New Zealand men take to the field as they face last year’s World Cup Finalists Samoa. The Samoans will be out for revenge after suffering a heavy defeat against Australia in their first game, but can the Kiwi’s get their campaign off to a good start?

Sunday 22nd October

Papua New Guinea Women vs Cook Islands Women- 3:45am Sky Sports Arena 

Fiji v Cook Islands- 6:00am Sky Sports Arena 

England v Tonga- 2:30pm BBC ONE 

We again venture south in the early hours of Sunday morning, as two great games await us. First we see PNG Women take on Cook Island Women in a repeat of the men’s game from last week. Can PNG Women replicate the result in the men’s game and secure a double over the Cook Islands? Or can the Cook Island side get a measure of revenge. After that, we see Fiji take on the Cook Islands men’s side. The Cook Islands lost heavily last week against PNG but can they correct that this week?

Rounding off the weekend, we see England take on Tonga in the first match of the Test Series. Shaun Wane’s side sees a number of huge Super League stars selected, as well as a host of NRL stars including Dom Young and Victor Radley; but can they start off the series with a win over the Tongan’s? It won’t be an easy ask though, with some of the NRL’s top talent named in the visitors squad, as well as Super League stars Will Hopoate, Konrad Hurrell and Tui Lolohea. It promises to be a hotly contested series, so Sunday’s opening game is definitely not one to be missed.
