The Australian Rugby League team, wich waa eliminated by France today from the V^orld Cup, wu4 sure that 1'ranee will win the trophy,

France toole all chances to beat Australia 15-5 and thus reach the trind final of tito Rugby League World Cup.

The result might easily

have been reversed for bad decisions, anJ mistakes by players at critical moments cost the Kangaroos two tries and a goal.

France will play Britain tomorrow in the grand final, each having won two matches and drawn one.

Most of the Australians toured France l8 months ago, and they are now con- vinced that they have little chance of beating the Frenchmen In their own country, even with English referee.

"In Australia, the referee leans over backwards to give the French every chance, but in this country we never have even a fair go," one player remarked after the match.
