Defeat leaves England 'bitterly disappointed'

England forward Sam Burgess and head coach Steve McNamara cannot hide their disappointment following England's 20-18 defeat by New Zealand in the World Cup semi-final.

England were leading 18-14 and heading to the final before a last-minute converted try from Shaun Johnson sealed victory for the Kiwis.

Burgess, Sean O'Loughlin and Kallum Watkins all went over for England while Roger Tuivasa-Sheck crossed twice for New Zealand.
