New Zealand are through to the rugby League World Cup Final after beating England 32-22 in a tough fought battle in Brisbane last night.

The Kiwis went 16-0 in the first half time before England mounted a come back attempt setting up the game 16-10 for a tit for tat contest in the second half.

In all ten tries were scored in an error ridden match.

New Zealand will face the winner of tonight's semifinal between tournament favourites Australia and Fiji in Sydney.
