Kiwis vs kangaroos RLWC 2022 Preview
From halfway around the world, the eyes of Australian and Kiwi rugby league fans will turn to Elland Road in Leeds on Saturday morning (AEDT) for a World Cup semi-final nine years in the making.
That’s how long it has been since the Trans-Tasman rivals have squared off at the Cup, with the Kangaroos storming to a 34-2 victory in the 2013 Final at another mecca of English sport, Old Trafford.
With Melbourne’s ‘Big Three’ Cameron Smith, Billy Slater and Cooper Cronk showing the way, Australia produced their second biggest win over New Zealand at a World Cup, the 32-point margin eclipsed only by the 36-point gap in 1970 when the Kangaroos won 47-11 at Wigan.
In 15 World Cup clashes, it’s the green and gold holding a staggering 14-1 advantage, with an average winning margin of a tick under 20 points.
From Paris to Auckland, Marseilles to Manchester, the Land Down Under has had its way with the Land of the Long White Cloud… apart from November 22, 2008 when the brilliance of Benji Marshall sparked a stunning upset in Brisbane.
That emotion-charged World Cup final in ’08 holds a special place in Kiwi folklore, a triumph for the ages as they stormed back from 16-12 down at half-time to grab the Paul Barriere Trophy for the first time.
