USA to arrive after lunch

USA will touch down in the nation’s capital at 1:10pm today for the final Pool C match of the World Cup.

Nicknamed the Hawks, this is their second appearance on the biggest stage of international rugby league. Their first was back in 2013.

USA is currently ranked tenth in the world.

This Sunday’s match against the PNG LNG Kumuls will kick off at 3pm at the Oil Search National Football Stadium.

USA are winless so far having lost their opening match to Fiji 58-12 and then to Italy 46-0 last weekend.
