England take on Canada in the Rugby World Cup semi-finals as the Red Roses continue their bid for glory in New Zealand.

Simon Middleton’s team have turned to their dominant forward pack and rolling maul throughout the tournament and have rejected any criticism of the tactic.

The winner between England and Canada, who have also won all four of their matches so far, will face either France or hosts New Zealand in the final.
