Italy are through to the 2013 World Cup after their 19 all draw against Lebanon played in Belgrade, Serbia on 29 Oct. Rhys Lenarduzzi was again on the interchange whilst ex-magpie Ben Falcone scored a try for Italy. Former magpie frontrower Alex Rainieri started the game but left the field injured during the first half. Italy led 18 nil at halftime but Lebanon fought back to snatch the lead 19 to 18 with a field goal with about 4 minutes to go. Then from the kick off, there was a fumble by Lebanon and Italian halfback Ryan Ghietti kicked the equaliser with 2 minutes left on the clock which was enough to get Italy into their first ever Rugby League World Cup with a better for/against then Lebanon.
