Rugby League – Whitehead eyes up top spot

Elliott Whitehead believes England can become the best team in the world, following their 6-0 defeat to Australia in the World Cup final. Wayne Bennett's side were narrowly beaten by the Kangaroos in Saturday's Brisbane finale, but Whitehead remains confident for the future. "We had the belief we could come here and win and it's disappointing that we didn't finish off some of the opportunities," said Whitehead, who has cemented his place in the England side following his move to the NRL in 2016. "But we cannot look back on it - we have got to look forward and keep building on what we're building. "We have proved we can defend, we have just got to get better at finishing our opportunities and we are not far off that." Meanwhile, Whitehead's Canberra Raiders are 16/1 with bet365 to win the NRL Grand Final this season.
