  • Australia thrash Fiji 54-6 to reach World Cup final

Australia showed no remorse as they put away Fiji 54-6 in a commanding display, highlighted by 6 tries to winger Valentine Holmes, ensuring they would feature in yet another Rugby League World Cup Final.

Yet despite his haul, with his 12 taking him clear of Wendall Sailor's record for scores in a single tournament, Holmes wants to play full-back at club level.

Kangaroos coach Mal Meninga said it was a great effort from the players and he's happy to be through to next week's final.

An ill-disciplined Jarryd Hayne has thrown in a bit of everything as his Rugby League World Cup campaign came to a grinding halt in Brisbane.

They crashed to the Aussies in the last two tournaments at this stage, conceding 116 points and scoring none.

They put some pressure on the Kangaroos early and were rewarded with a penalty in the sixth minute, which Apisai Koroisau goaled.

Holmes, three times, and Slater kept the tries rolling in after the break with Gagai also grabbing a second.

Dane Gagai also cashed in as Fiji were their own worst enemies, blowing promising positions and losing the ball.

The Ashes When is The Ashes and what TV channel is it on?

However, that was never going to be anywhere near enough and Josh Dugan sent Holmes in again to seal the mind-boggling stat.

Holmes scored five tries - a record for a World Cup match - in a quarter-final rout of Samoa and incredibly went one better at Suncorp Stadium as the ruthless holders set up a showdown with England or Tonga at the same venue next Saturday.

History was made five minutes later though when Holmes scored his fifth try.

Cameron Smith, who controlled the match with his kicking game, landed seven out of 10 goal attempts.
