The semi-finals of the World Cup had two very different games with two very different dynamics. On one hand you had England trying to restore some pride against a New Zealand team gaining momentum with every game they play. Then on the other hand you had one of the success stories of the World Cup Fiji, who had already won by making it into the semi-final in the first place taking on the might of Australia. Both games didn't disappoint in the entertainment stakes.

The third round of the Rugby League World Cup turned the predicted finishing positions for Group Two and Three upside down. Ireland caused a major upset by beating Samoa 34 - 16 and securing a position in the qualifying semi-final. Scotland put a scare into Fiji by winning their first ever World Cup game 18 - 16. It was not enough to deny Fiji a date with Ireland for the qualifying semi-final. All teams in group Two and Three came away with a win each showing how competitive the games were.
