Burgess scores as England romp France

South Sydney Rabbitohs forward Thomas Burgess has found himself on the scoresheet once again, as England Rugby League cruised to a 44-6 victory over France this morning. 

It didn't take long for the barnstorming forward to get going, scoring another national team try in just the second minute of the match. 

Burgess' effort set the tone for the rest of the contest, as his four-pointer was followed by a fast and furious hat-trick from winger Tom Johnstone on his international debut. 

Leading 26-0, England put on a clinic with tries from Richie Myler, Luke Thompson and Canberra Raider Elliot Whitehead putting the Brits 40-0 up at half-time. 

The second half, however, fell flat compared to the first, with England only managing to cross one more time through Jake Connor and France running in a consolation try through Theo Fages. 

With brother George Burgess also putting in a strong shift, the twins are primed and ready to have big performances in the upcoming tri-series against New Zealand.
