Rugby League World Cup 2013: Opening ceremony best bits

Watch the best bits of the opening ceremony of the Rugby League World Cup 2013 at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.

The ceremony included a performance by former rugby league star Martin Offiah and fellow Strictly Come Dancing contestant Gethin Jones.

Unfortunately the host nations did not get off to the best start to the tournament, with England losing to Australia and Wales getting beaten by Italy.
