Two goals in the 6th minute from Trent Flanigan and Luke Haydon had the game well in Australia-s keeping.
Giovenali scored his second in the 10th minute, only for England to strike back straight away to make it 5-1. Daniel Macor added a late goal in the first half to see the score at 6-1 at the break, which neither side was able to add to in the second half.
