How significant was the Kiwis’ win against Australia on Sunday? Well, it was big for New Zealand rugby league but also for Test football in general.
Shaun Johnson’s wizard-like Four Nations performance should go down as one of the most dominant displays by a half in international rugby league history – that is why he won the Golden Boot.
Push-over scrums, ferocious gang-tackling, a lightning halfback and a classy fullback coming into their own – the Warriors should have the competition shaking in their studded boots.
This year will forever be remembered for two players who had contrasting years. One, a gifted young player whose career ended via a tackle, another who ended his own career through his own actions.
Is there anything Jarryd Hayne cannot do? The superstar Blues snatched the game from Queensland’s grasp and put his name on State of Origin and Australian rugby league history with one single act.
Welcome to the new age of rugby league, where players pile-drive each other into the turf like Hulk Hogan and receive a week off.
