Duration: 2 hours, 30 minutes

Mark Chapman is live at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff as the 2013 Rugby League World Cup gets under way. Over the course of five weeks and 28 matches, 14 nations will be doing battle for the title of world champions.

The action kicks off with a mouth-watering clash between old foes England and Australia. The Kangaroos are the pre-tournament favourites, but Steve McNamara will fancy his side to cause an upset. Several players in the England squad ply their trade in Australia's NRL, and head coach McNamara will be hoping that insider knowledge of their opponents will give them an extra edge.
