Michael Horak scored four tries as England won the Churchill Cup final rehearsal at Vancouver's Thunderbird Stadium here on Saturday.

The London Irish full-back needed just 68 minutes for his contribution to a six-try victory warm-up for this Saturday's showdown with the Eagles.

Horak went over in the sixth minute and was followed by Iain Balshaw and Pete Anglesea as England led 19-5 at half-time.

Horak added two more in the first three minutes of the second half and scored his fourth just before his substitution 12 minutes from time. Olly Barkley kicked three conversions while David Hodges and and Cayo Nicolau gave the Eagles some respectability.
