England take honours but aussies fight back harder against Australia’s dominance of Australia and NZ and a much weaker South African outfit
Australia have now won the World Cup by 21 points, two more than Australia, South Africa and New Zealand combined.
South Africa still face Japan a우리카지노계열nd France in Group F and there will be four additional semi-final matches to this year’s World Cup, but the big shock of this semi-final is the Australian side has lost the last four games with only a draw.
Australia, who have never won the World Cup with fewer than five defeats, will have had more matches played in this World Cup than in their previous seven seasons of competition.
It has been a turbulent year for Australia with several suspensions for some players, such as Ben Ikin, Phil Gould, Robbie Farah and Jason Taumalolo and the departure of star skipper Adam Scott.
Australia play South Africa, New Zealand and France
This is more bad news for the Australian side, with Australia set to travel to Brazil in March for the Rugby World Cup.
The other semi-final round game will be played in New Zealand against France with both teams set to play each other before the World Cup. Australia’s semi-final opponents will be:
England – South Africa, France, Argentina
Australia – New Zealand, New Zealand, Australia
BRAZIL – Argentina, South Africa, Argentina
It will be interesting to see how the Australian side fares in these second-round matches as the Aussie underdogs have gone through a few injuries in their history, losing one in their win over Samoa.
But it could be an exciting World Cup to watch, with the South Africans having gone down to the semi-finals only to eventually win a game by 20 points, the result going to Samoa.
The two semi-final matches will start at 6pm AEST on Sunday, May 24 and will be screened LIVE on ABC TV from 10.45pm – including pre-taped replays.
