Duration: 2 hours, 45 minutes

Mark Chapman introduces live coverage from Old Trafford as reigning champions New Zealand again meet Australia in the Rugby League World Cup final.

Though New Zealand have only won four of their 29 matches against Australia since 2000, three of those victories have been in finals - including their stunning World Cup triumph five years ago on Australian soil. The Kiwis' 34-30 win in Brisbane brought them their first World Cup and ended Australia's 33-year hold on the trophy.

Having been accused of complacency in previous big game defeats, the Australians know that they will have to be at their best to overcome New Zealand this time around.

Mark is joined by a host of guests including England internationals Jamie Peacock and Jon Wilkin, while commentary is by Dave Woods, Jonathan Davies and Brian Noble.
