England rolled past reigning champion New Zealand in 28-6 victory Saturday at KC Stadium in the United Kingdom.
After Tom Briscoe's try and two goals by Kevin Sinfield, England went into halftime with an 8-0 lead and then scored first, four minutes after the restart, when Ryan Hall expertly grounded in the right corner, the NZherald reported.
"It was a real complete performance from them and they fully deserved the victory," New Zealand's coach Stephen Kearney said. "They were very, very good."
Kevin Sinfield was awarded man-of-the-match after kicking six goals from six attempts, according to BBC news.
With the win, England earned a spot in the final, which will be a rematch against the team that defeated them 36-20 in Wembly Stadium last weekend.
"We're really confident in what we're doing,'' England captain Jamie Peacock said. "We're getting more confident as the tournament progresses and we want to take another step up against Australia."
