The match will be live in Australia on the Seven Network and in New Zealand via Sky Sport. English spirits might have taken a battering in the cricket at the Gabba but all hope isn’t lost with their rugby league heroes out to salvage some national pride when they take on Australia in Saturday night’s World Cup final.
Wayne Bennett’s men will start as rank outsiders, and while their coach doesn’t believe they are playing well enough to beat the defending champions England will head into this weekend’s clash with plenty of confidence after they survived a furious Tongan comeback in the semi-final to hang on for a thrilling 20-18 win.
There might have been some controversy at the end but the final few minutes masked what had been a fairly dominant performance by the English who are now on a four-game winning streak after dropping the opening game of the tournament to Australia.
