Fittler Concedes England Upset May Be On The Cards

Tags: Four Nations, Australia Kangaroos, England

Freddy Fittler, former Australian captain, has said that England are capable of causing an upset in the final round-robin game of the Four Nations.

While reluctant to tip the English side outright, according to Rugby League Week Freddy considers them a real threat - and a genuine possibilty of trumping the Aussies.

“If you look at last week, the game (against Scotland) really turned around when Tom and George Burgess came on. They were down a couple of tries and then Tom comes on and they score," Fittler said.

“You don’t like to see Australia get beat, but I’d like to see England play really well and put something back into the game, the international game at least.”
