A different venue, a different squad, but same result for the Red Roses as they beat Canada for the second week running to seal the two-test series. England made eight changes to the team which won 50 – 24 last week, but the margin of victory was reduced to seventeen points as they ran in five tries to win 29 – 12 at the StoneX Stadium on Saturday. The closer score reflected the difference for both sides between last week’s fixture and this game, as a much-changed England side struggled with consistency, while Canada had clearly benefited from an extra week together. The first ten minutes were ..read more

England eased into the World Cup semi-finals with a 41 – 5 win over Australia in a game which saw both teams battle to overcome the foul weather which soaked the pitch and the players, and made simply catching the ball an increasingly difficult proposition.  The rain was at its worst in the early stages of the game, hammering down so hard that the pitch was soon waterlogged and players made a splash every time they went to ground.  In light of these conditions, England tried to keep it tight, kicking for field position and using their maul to advance down the field. Inevitably there ..read more
