The countdown continues until England run out at the Dairy Farmers Stadium in Townsville to face Papua New Guinea on 25 October - the start of their World Cup campaign.
England coach Tony Smith is adamant that places in his World Cup squad are up for grabs - and revealed in a recent interview I did with him that there could be a few surprise faces in his squad to face France in June.
Who do you reckon could be a surprise inclusion in his squad?
Smith is confident that if England play the sort of attacking rugby we see in Super League that his team can win the tournament.
How do you assess England's chances? Can anyone stop Australia and how important is this World Cup to the game in general?
