OK then,

 

Score - 30 - 6 to Australia

 

MOM - Jonathan Thurston

 

First try scorer - Brett Morris

 

I really hope I'm completely wrong on this, but the Kiwis are missing some guys who could make a real difference. I'll be cheering on the KIwis as ever in these games, but that's an awesome line up the Aussies can put out.

To be fair I wouldn't mind if England could have a squad as good as that Kiwi one.
Realistically though Kiwis haven't done well in these mid-season tests.
Not only is the Aussie squad good on paper, or PC screen, they are all in really good form.

Kiwis over again but Klein says no try again. Hodges knocked on but somehow it was considered minor compared to an obstruction that followed. Strange. Oz got penalty for second offense!

Kiwis having a good spell. Over try line again, but knock on from Pritchard. That's three in a row decisions against Kiwis.

Kiwis get reward for perseverance. Get great try after kick through from Frank Pritchard right on half time for Hoffman.

With the amount of posession the Kiwis had and the chances they had, they really should've been in front. There was a touch of inevitability in the second half when the Aussies got the greater share of possesion that they would score a few. Thought Keiran Foran had a really good game for the Kiwis though, and that was a very nice little kick from Frank Pritchard to set up the Kiwis first try.
