England play well against the Aussies, look like they are going to beat them, then let them back into the match and eventually succumb to defeat. It is a depressingly familiar tale isn't it?
But it is not all doom and gloom. Oh no. Convincingly beat the Kiwis next Saturday (and judging by England's display today it is not out of the realms of possibility) and they will reach the Four Nations final.
The identity of the two finalists may still be undecided, but one thing is certain - it is going to be another thriller. Set your alarm clocks before you go to bed on Friday because we are up before the birds again. We'll be here from 06:00 GMT. See you then!
