RLWC Quarter Final Results
All the results and try scorers from the quarter finals of the 2017 Rugby League World Cup.
AUSTRALIA v SAMOA
The Kangaroos have cruised into the World Cup semi-finals on the back of a 46-0 win over a Samoan side that failed to fire a shot in steamy conditions in front of a sold-out crowd in Darwin.
Australia 46 (Valentine Holmes 5, Michael Morgan 2, Billy Slater tries; Cameron Smith 7 goals) def Samoa 0 at Darwin Stadium. Half-time: 30-0. Crowd: 13,473
TONGA v LEBANON
Tonga are one step away from a Rugby League World Cup decider, downing Lebanon 24-22 in their quarter-final in Christchurch.
In Saturday's end-to-end affair, which will go down as one of the most-exciting tussles of the tournament, Tonga's first-half display was just enough to get them over the line.
Tonga 24 (Lolohea, Fusitu'a (2), Hopoate Goals: Hingano 4) def. Lebanon 22 (Doueihi, Elias, Miski (2) Goals: Moses 3)
FIJI v NEW ZEALAND
Fiji Bati have produced one of the greatest upsets in Rugby League World Cup history to edge past New Zealand 4-2 and book a semi-final meeting with Australia.
The victory marks Fiji's first-ever win against a tier-one nation and caps a miserable tournament for the Kiwis, who were booted from the quarter-finals a week after becoming the first top-three nation ever to lose to a second-tier side.
Fiji 4 (Apisai Koroisau 1, Taane Milne 1 goals) def. New Zealand 2 (Shaun Johnson 1 goal) at Wellington Regional Stadium. HT: 2-0.
ENGLAND v PNG
England advanced to the World Cup semi-finals with a 36-6 win against Papua New Guinea on Sunday afternoon.
Wayne Bennett's side scored seven tries to one and had to work hard against a typically physical Kumuls side who were strong in the opening stanza.
England 36 (McGillvary 2, Watkins 2, Walmsley, Currie, Hall tries; Widdop 4 goals) def Papua New Guinea 6 (Lo try; Martin goal). Half-time: 14-0. Crowd: 10,563.
