EDITORS PLEASE NOTE: EDIT CONTAINS WHITE FLASHES 1.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) ENGLAND SCRUMHALF, BEN YOUNGS, SAYING: "That's Jonny for you, you know.

The guy is blessed with unbelievable pace.

You know, you only have to give him an opportunity and he's an out and out finisher.

You know, on his 50th cap, what a day to remember for him.

So, I'm very, very proud of him and very pleased for him." 2.

WHITE FLASH 3.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) ENGLAND CENTRE, HENRY SLADE, SAYING: "Yeah I just didn't have the legs to make it myself.

I just looked to my left and saw Jonny (May) and then obviously he's one of the quickest players in the world.

And obviously if there's that a bit of space out there I know that not many people are going to catch him.

So I just put it there, and he did well to finish." 4.

WHITE FLASH 5.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) ENGLAND LOCK, COURTNEY LAWES, SAYING: "Yeah, Jonny's (May) obviously a massive part of our team.

I think across the board we've got unbelievable players.

And then even, you know, Jack Nowell and 'Launchers' (Joe Launchbury).

We've got players everywhere that aren't even involved that could take the field of any team, any team in the World Cup." STORY: Winger Jonny May's two tries in three first-half minutes received praise from team mates as England underlined their Rugby World Cup credentials with a dominant 40-16 win over Australia on Saturday (October 19) to set up a semi-final against New Zealand.

Four years after the Wallabies sent England packing out of their own tournament, Eddie Jones's side gained a measure of revenge while extending their winning streak over the Australians to seven matches.

England, who scored four tries in all to Australia's one, have now won three out of three World Cup quarter-finals against Australia following their upset wins in 1995 and 2007.
