Australia thrashes Fiji

12:47 pm on 24 November 2013

The Kangaroos earned a shot at Rugby League World Cup redemption by demolishing Fiji 64-0 at Wembley to set up a showdown with reigning champions New Zealand in next weekend's final.

Australia piled on 11 tries, including a Jarryd Hayne hat-trick, and didn't concede a point for the third straight match in the second game of a semi-final double header in front of 67,000 fans in London.

It came after the Kiwis booked their place in the decider at Old Trafford with a last-gasp 20-18 win over England in a World Cup classic.

Australia and New Zealand will meet in the final for the third straight tournament, with the Kangaroos out to avenge their shock loss in the 2008 decider.

While the Kiwis were pushed to the limit by England, Tim Sheens' side has strolled through almost effortlessly to a 13th straight World Cup final.

They've piled on 210 points in their past four games and haven't conceded a single try.
