Cook Islands worried over new Rugby League World Cup qualification

Updated 7 August 2014, 9:24 AEST

Moves by the Rugby League International Federation to change the World Cup qualifying path for the lower ranked Pacific teams have not gone down well in Cook Islands.

And with PNG pushing for joint hosting rights in 2017 with Australia and NZ, the Cooks and Tonga are the teams in the firing line.
