France and New Zealand are the favourites, and we consider them the most solid picks for the upcoming World Cup. South Africa, the champion of the 2019 World Cup, is another solid option and is known for winning three world cup titles - the same as New Zealand.
The Rugby League World Cup has been on the international sporting stage since 1954 - the winners of the inaugural tournament were Great Britain. Australia have since established themselves as international powerhouses, however. The Wallabies have won 11 titles - including six consecutive titles from 1975 until 2000.
Australian halfback Jonathan Thurston holds the record for the most points by an individual player - he has racked up an incredible 124 points - 12 ahead of compatriot Mick Cronin.
The Rugby League World Cup has been the playground of many legendary Rugby League figures, including the aforementioned Thurston, Melbourne Storm stalwart Cameron Smith, and Andrew Johns - a player many would label the greatest to play the game!
The first Rugby Union World Cup was held in 1987. The hosts were Australia and New Zealand. New Zealand and South Africa are the only teams that have won World Cup 3 times, while Australia won 2 trophies. As more rugby-playing nations are invited, the tournament's field of competitors has increased from 16 to 20 teams.
Australia is the winner of the Rugby League 2022 World Cup.
Based on current odds, the favourites are France, New Zealand and Ireland.
Rugby League World Cup is organised every four years. The last World Cup was postponed due to COVID-19.
France will host Rugby Union World Cup in 2023.
France will host both Union World Cup in 2023 and League World Cup in 2025.
