England sore after Australia defeat

RUGBY LEAGUE: England’s Sam Tomkins says their gutsy display in Saturday’s 28-20 defeat to Australia is of little consolation following the World Cup opener in Cardiff. “We’ve a lot to improve on, that’s the main thing to come out of it,” said Tomkins. “You’ve got to be disappointed with a loss. We probably gave them a bit too much ball. They’re a quality side, probably the best, and they’re going to punish you.”
