The 2017 Rugby League World Cup will culminate when Australia take on England at Suncorp Stadium following each nation's semi-final success over the weekend.

St George Illawarra back-rower Tyson Frizell played part in Australia's 54-6 win over Fiji in Brisbane on Friday night.

While Sharks winger Valentine Holmes stole the show with six tries – making it 11 four-pointers in just two Tests – Frizell contributed to the Kangaroos' victory by producing 95 metres and 13 tackles.

Unfortunately the Bati's defeat spelled the end of young Dragons utility Joe Lovodua's World Cup.

Lovodua played every Test for Fiji bar one throughout the tournament and will now have a few weeks off before reporting to the Under-20s pre-season.

England and Dragons duo Gareth Widdop and James Graham will also be present in the World Cup final following their 20-18 win over a fast-finishing Tonga in Auckland.

Up 20-0 in the final seven minutes, Tonga put three tries past England in quick succession but couldn't find a fourth in the dying stages of the game.

In the Women's Rugby League World Cup, the Jillaroos backed up their 88-0 win over Canada from earlier in the week by beating them again to qualify for the tournament final.

The Jillaroos' 58-6 win on Sunday afternoon at Southern Cross Group Stadium was enjoyed by Dragons Ambassador Kezie Apps, though unfortunately fellow Ambassador Sam Bremner failed to take the field again.

The Jillaroos will now take on the Kiwi Ferns at Suncorp Stadium on Friday evening prior to the men's World Cup final.
