Preview of the match
When leading his team against Lebanon in the Rugby League World Cup, Ireland’s head coach Ged Corcoran will look to draw on the experiences he gained as a player in the hopes of helping his team advance to the knockout stages of the competition.
At the 2007 Rugby league World Cup, Corcoran was a member of the Ireland team that played Lebanon to a draw of 16-16 and advanced to the knockout stages as a result. That match up in Dewsbury was a vicious battle, and Lebanon will be eager to put a positive spin on things when they play at the Leigh Sports Village.
After Ireland’s opening game, in which they defeated Jamaica 48-2, they have a chance to advance to the knockout rounds if they win their next game against the Cedars and New Zealand wins its next game against the Reggae Warriors.
The fact that Lebanon lost to New Zealand by a score of 34-12 demonstrated that they will be a difficult opponent for the Wolfhounds, but the inventiveness of Ireland’s halves should prove to be the deciding factor in the end. Richie Myler is coming off of another outstanding season for the Leeds Rhinos, while Luke Keary is one of the stars in the National Rugby League (NRL).
Eight days after being humiliated by England at St. James’ Park, Samoa will play Greece in Pool A. This match will take place on the same day. Samoa suffered a defeat by the score of 60-6 in Newcastle, and they also lost three of their starting players; however, this will not affect their chances of beating Greece, who are making their debut.
As the Toa Samoa look for a big score to get their rugby league world cup preparations back on track, it is worthwhile to consider betting on the total points market even though Samoa are so far behind in the market.
