AUSSIES WIN RUGBY LEAGUE WORLD CUP

A FIRST-HALF TRY TO BOYD CORDNER AND DESPERATE DEFENCE HELPED AUSTRALIA WIN THEIR 11TH RUGBY LEAGUE WORLD CUP TITLE WITH A 6-0 VICTORY OVER ENGLAND.

 

Both sides smashed each other into exhaustion with punishing defence and a fast-paced game with Australia centre Josh Dugan saving two probable tries with his positional sense and a desperate ankle tap on his opposite number Kallum Watkins.

 

The only thing that separated the sides was Cordner's 15th-minute try as they both controlled the ball well, but England rued stupid errors or poor decisions early in the tackle count inside the Kangaroos' 20-metre area.

 

"It's amazing to finally get a World Cup victory on home soil," Kangaroos captain Cameron Smith said. "It was one of the toughest football games I've played in my career. A really pleasing victory for the boys.
