With the Rugby League World Cup this autumn hanging in the balance, we’re joined by Brazil’s Football Manager Robert Burgin direct from Queensland to discuss the current situation.

As well as finding out how he got involved in Rugby League in Brazil in the first place, we’ve got a lot to discuss, including:

As Australia and New Zealand have pulled out, how does this leave the tournament?

What risks are involved for those competing?

What will postponement or cancellation mean to those “emerging” nations? 

Should teams representing the First Nations of those two countries be involved?

Plenty to discuss and think about…
