England stormed into the World Cup semi-finals with two tries for winger Jonny May, brilliant kicking by Owen Farrell and a superb defensive display driving them to a convincing 40-16 win over Australia.
England turned the game with two tries inside three minutes midway through the first half as May finished a good move for the first, then grabbed a second after Henry Slade intercepted on his own 22, galloped clear then cleverly kicked perfectly into the path of his galloping left-winger.
Three Christiano Lealiifano penalties kept Australia in touch at 17-9 at the break and Marika Koroibete’s try soon after cutting the lead to a point but prop Kyle Sinckler then blasted through and, and after Farrell’s goalkicking stretched the lead, Anthony Watson finished it in style with a fourth try.
