That this House congratulates the England men's rugby league team on reaching the 2017 Rugby League World Cup Final; notes that despite a narrow 6-0 defeat in the final by Australia, the squad have done themselves and their country proud; hopes that England's success in reaching the World Cup Final for the first time in 22 years will inspire more young people across the United Kingdom to play rugby league; looks forward to welcoming New Zealand for an international test series against England in 2018; and further hopes that at the 2021 Rugby League World Cup in England, the home side will be able to go one step further and be crowned World Champions.
