Wembley set for Four Nations league launch

6:21 am on 5 April 2011

Wembley looks set to host the opening matches of this year's Four Nations rugby league series.

The Rugby Football League are planning to launch the tournament with a double header featuring England against Australia and newcomers Wales against New Zealand.

It would be the first international rugby league match to be staged at Wembley since 1997 when Great Britain lost to an Australian team split by the Super League war.
