Analysis - what to expect
England meet the old enemy Australia in the Rugby League World Cup final with a chance to make history. It is 22 long years since the English made it to the final and now they have the chance to claim the trophy for the first time. They have a huge task on their hands if they are to achieve that with Australia looking imperious. The Aussies' defensive record is one to behold but they are also capable of racking up plenty of points with the ball in hand. They have scored a minimum of 34 points in nine of their last 10 World Cup games with the opening group game against England in this year's tournament the last time they failed to hit that mark. England have improved as the tournament has progressed but this should be a step too far. They fell to an 18-4 defeat in the first game of the competition but this margin could be even greater if Australia continue to be as clinical in both attack and defence.
