Slater breaks World Cup record

Billy Slater is now the greatest try scorer in Rugby League World Cup history.

When Slater scored a double in Friday night’s semi-final win over Fiji he took his career tally to 16.

That now sees the 34-year-old sit atop the all-time list of try scorers in the tournament.

After three and a half years away from the green and gold jersey, Slater has marked his comeback to international football in style by crossing the line in all four games he has played for the Kangaroos this campaign.

Slater has used the World Cup to put an exclamation point on the fact he once again stands as the best fullback in the world.

He will be front and centre when Australia take on England in the Rugby Leagsue World Cup Final final this Saturday night at Suncorp Stadium.
