England clinched a series win over Tonga with a game to spare by winning a rain-soaked second Test.

Matty Ashton scored two first-half tries on his second England start as Shaun Wane’s dominated early on to lead 12-0 at the break.

Tolutau Koula’s second-half try in the left corner briefly raised hopes of a Tonga fightback.

However, England held firm to triumph in another bruising encounter at John Smith’s Stadium in Huddersfield.
