England will seek to repeat Monday’s league victory over Australia when the sides meet today in the semi-finals of the Wheelchair World Cup in France.
The game, which kicks off at 2.15pm local time, is being played in Toulouse, with the other semi-final between France and Italy following at 6.30pm. The World Cup Final is being played on Friday, at Perpignan.
England have every reason for confidence going into the clash, having accounted for the Kangaroos 80-26 a couple of days ago.
Wales, though, missed out on the last four through yesterday’s 108-24 reverse at the hands of Italy, while Australia are at the penultimate stage after accounting for Spain 49-40.
Scotland slipped out of the running through defeats at the league stage by Italy and Spain.
