  • Australia looked very assured during the group stage as they advanced with ease to the knockout stages, winning all three of their games with a points difference of 178 having scored 192 points and conceding just 14.
  • Head coach Mal Meninga still appears undecided over his favoured partner for Cameron Munster in the halves with Daly Cherry-Evans and Nathan Cleary both selected in the 19-man squad while there are still question marks surrounding the makeup of his three-quarter line.

Squad: 1 James Tedesco, 2 Daly Cherry-Evans, 4 Valentine Holmes, 5 Jake Trbojevic, 7 Cameron Munster, 8 Latrell Mitchell, 9 Josh Addo-Carr, 10 Jack Wighton, 11 Cameron Murray, 13 Patrick Carrigan, 14 Nathan Cleary, 15 Lindsay Collins, 16 Reuben Cotter, 17 Angus Crichton, 18 Tino Fa'asuamaleaui, 19 Campbell Graham, 20 Harry Grant, 21 Liam Martin, 24 Isaah Yeo


  • Lebanon won back-to-back games to book their place in this quarter-final with reigning world champions Australia with an eye-catching 74-12 success against Jamaica setting them up nicely for this contest.
  • If Lebanon are to cause what would be the biggest upset in RLWC history, they will need the likes of Mitchell Moses, Adam Doueihi and Jacob Kiraz to be at the top of their game with the latter likely to return to the line-up at fullback after sitting out the win over Jamaica.

Squad: 1 Jacob Kiraz, 2 Josh Mansour, 3 Bilal Maarabani, 4 Brad Morkos, 5 Abbas Miski, 6 Adam Doueihi, 7 Mitchell Moses, 8 Kayne Kalache, 10 Hanna El-Nachar, 11 Elie El-Zakhem, 12 Charbel Tasipale, 13 James Roumanos, 14 Anthony Layoun, 15 Andrew Kazzi, 16 Reece Robinson, 17 Jalal Bazzaz, 18 Khaled Rajeb, 19 Khalil Rahme, 20 Jaxson Rahme


Australia look every inch the Rugby League World Cup winners in-waiting after producing some convincing performances in an unbeaten group campaign. They topped Pool B on the back of some dominant displays and it will take a team of real quality to topple them. Lebanon stand in their way here having finished second behind New Zealand and while they boast a handful of players that can cause the Kangaroos some issues, the overall gulf in quality across the two teams is likely to be evident with the Australians able to win this by at least 30 points.
