Rugby League World Cup Final 2013 video highlights

Rugby League World Cup Final 2013 video highlights: It’s now over three weeks since the Australians ruthlessly wrestled the World Cup back from New Zealand hands at Old Trafford.

After leading New Zealand 16-2 in the first half the Kangaroos went further ahead with a superb try within one minute of the restart.

It was downhill from there – Johnathan Thurston , Darius Boyd and Billy Slater linked down the short side for the Australian fullback to score his second try of the final.

A superb Josh Papalii offload and kicks ahead from Brett Morris and Jarryd Hayne was finished off with Morris diving onto the bouncing ball to score a spectacular try.
Morris was then on Hayne’s shoulder as the centre raced away after intercepting a pass from Sonny Bill Williams.

The Australians withstood a late Kiwi rally with Johnathan Thurston named as the man of the match.
Here are the official highlights from the final.
