As we approach the end of 2021 in Rugby League, does anyone know what's happening next year?

Plus, we have a very special guest, also wanting to know what will happen next year, but still with the destiny on the club he coaches in his own hands, and those of his players, Hunslet's Alan Kilshaw.

It's Thursday, and we're in a better mood this week because we're looking forward to the Wheelchair Challenge Cup Final this week, with special guest Martin Coyd, who has probably forgotten more about the sport than we'll ever know.

He tells us about the game on Sunday, a lesson on the basics for those watching for the first time, of the future for the sport and how England are turning the World Cup postponement into a positive ahead of 2022.

Therapy is expensive, so, after the news of the Rugby League World Cup being postponed until 2022, Phil and Richard let off steam, ask you to stand up for the sport, and deal with realism.

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...
