  • Description

    Great Britain had little difficulty crushing New Zealand's rugby-league thirteen 53-19 a Pau in South-Western France on Saturday (November 4), to take them through to the World Cup final against either France or Australia. The British side, which has now won all three of its games in the competition so far, led 33-8 at half-time. The New Zealanders, who last year beat the Great Britain side, failed to produce more than token resistance as they tried to mount attacks at the expense of sound defence. Nine British players scored tries... Holmes and Atkinson getting two apiece. Australia, the reigning champions were pre-tournament favourites for this year's titles which will be decided in Lyons on November 11. This coverage was made available through ORTF.
