Kangaroos 4-11 for World Cup after Leeds stroll
AUSTRALIA secured the Four Nations title with a 30-8 victory over England at Elland Road on Saturday night andthe Kangaroos are no bigger than 4-11 to win the 2013 World Cup.
The Aussies, 4-9 shots at the start of the Four Nations, strolled to victory in Leeds as a powerful second-half performance helped them cover a 12-point handicap.
Darren Lockyer scored the last try in the final game of his
career but, even without their inspirational skipper, Australia remain the team to beat.
The next World Cup will be held in England and Wales butNew Zealand, who failed to make the Four Nations final, are seen as the biggest threat to Australia at 4-1.
Co-hosts England are next in the betting at 8-1 while Wales, who lost all three of their Four Nations matches, conceding 134 points, are 500-1 with Paddy Power and Victor Chandler.
