RugbyL: Kiwi Johnson leaves it late to break English hearts

New Zealand playmaker Shaun Johnson jinked over for a last-minute try he then converted to hand the defending champions a nail-biting 20-18 victory over England in the World Cup semi-finals on Saturday. England looked to have booked a berth in next weekend's final but Johnson scooted around Kevin Sinfield's rush defence to touch down. His conversion wrapped up an enthralling match that featured both brute power and deft offloads. "It was a real Test match and England had a great game today," said New Zealand coach Stephen Kearney.
