Best Watch


Australia v USA men's semi


Australia will be coming in hungry - this team has shown themselves incredibly strong against North American teams, taking down Canada 15 - 4. The USA are the juggernaut, and the boys will be looking to stamp their authority on the world stage. This game will be an incredible test of both teams, Australia with everything to gain and USA with everything to lose.
