The UK Armed Forces rugby league side have suffered another defeat at the Defence World Cup. 

Playing at the New Era stadium in Cabramatta, the British side were beaten 38-12 by reigning champions Australia.

The first half was end-to-end, with two brilliant tries from Si Wray and Lee Queeley, with the score 12-12 at half time. 

But Australia dominated the second period, going over five more times and denying the UK any more points. 

Following a 40-20 loss to Fiji last Friday, it means the UK team now have no chance of making the final next Sunday. 

But they do have two more matches to play - New Zealand on Wednesday and then the third/fourth place play off on Friday.
