The records toppled during England’s 94-4 win over Greece

Yesterday, England came up with a record breaking triumph over Greece.

They won 94-4 at Sheffield United’s Bramall Lane running in 17 tries.

But just how many records did England topple yesterday with the win?

Here’s a break down of the records toppled by Shaun Wane’s side.

Third biggest win and biggest score by England
The tally of 94 points yesterday is the third highest ever scored by England and the 90-point winning margin was the third highest by England as well. It topped England’s 76-4 win over Russia as England’s World Cup record.

Second most tries in a game by England
England’s 17 tries – which were scored by 11 different players – was the third most tries in a game by England. In 2000 England beat USA 110-0 scoring 20 tries. Meanwhile, in 2004, a 98-4 win over Russia also saw England score 17 tries. It was the most by England in the World Cup.

Third most points in a game by England
It is unsurprising that those two games then, are the only games in which England scored more points making yesterday’s tally of 94 the third most ever scored by England in a game. It was the most in a World Cup by England.

Third most goals in a game by England
Once again those two fixtures were what stood in the way of England achieving complete history. In the win over USA 15 goals were kicked which were shared by a number of players whilst Wayne Goodwin kicked 15 goals in the win over Russia. This means Marc Sneyd’s record of 13 out of 17 is the third most goals in a game by England and the second most goals in a game by an individual in an England game with Kevin Sinfield, Tommy Makinson and co on 12. Once again it was the most in a World Cup by England.

Second most points in a game by a single player
That tally of 13 goals alongside a try for Marc Sneyd made it 30 points in total for Marc Sneyd which us the most by an England player in a World Cup. This is joint second with Richie Myler in 2009 and second to Wayne Goodwin in that game against Russia. It was the most in a World Cup by an England player.

Second most tries in a game by a single player for England
Dom Young’s tally of four tries is the second most tries ever scored by an England player a record he shares with the likes of Ryan Hall, Sam Tomkins and Josh Charnley. Kris Radlinski scored five tries against the USA in 2000. In a non-international fixture as England met Queensland Alf Ellaby scored seven tries in a 63-21 win back in 1932.

Most tries for England
The game also saw Ryan Hall extend his record for most tries for England with his 38th and 39th tries for England in his 40th game for his country.
