Rugby League World Cup 2013 marked 'one year to go' and players from all 14 competing nations mingled on the day marking the date that tickets for the tournament went on general sale.
Nine players from across the globe, representing Australia, Cook Islands, Fiji, France, Italy, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Tonga and the USA answered questions from the media about their preparations for RLWC2013 via a specially created Google handout.
Players from hosts England and Wales, as well as Ireland, Scotland and Samoa were present at the press conference in Media City UK, the home of RLWC2013.
RLWC2013 kicks off on October 26 next year with both hosts playing at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium. Home side Wales take on tournament newcomers Italy and England face the old enemy Australia.
