Rugby League World Cup: England disappointed after Australia defeat

England coach Steve McNamara is 'disappointed' with his side's second-half performance during defeat to Australia in their opening group game of the Rugby League World Cup.

Australia's man-of-the-match Jonathan Thurston admits his side "got away with it" while head coach Tim Sheens believes his side still had "a long way to go" if they are to regain their title as world champions.

Australia's next game is against Fiji while England face Ireland on 2 November.
