Australia wins 36-20 over England in brutal clash

Australia advanced to the Four Nations final by extending its 16-year winning streak over England with a 36-20 victory in the second match of the doubleheader at Wembley Stadium on Saturday.
In a full-blooded and physically uncompromising clash in front of a vociferously parochial crowd, Australia was stretched to its limit in holding off an England team expected to provide minimal resistance.
Instead, Australia never completely managed to shake off England in a match that had it all _ 10 tries, expert kicking, individual handling skills, brutal defense and even an all-in brawl that had the 42,344 supporters baying for blood.
England will play New Zealand next Saturday for the right to play Australia in the Oct. 19 final.
