Kangaroos

The Kangaroos have dominated international Rugby League since their inception in 1908. Australia have won nine out of the thirteen World Cup tournaments played so far and are consistently ranked first in the RLIF world rankings.

The Kangaroos have gone through some upheaval over the past few seasons. After dominating the 2013 Rugby League World Cup in England and Wales, a tournament which was capped off with a comprehensive 34-2 victory over New Zealand in the final, Australia had a mixed 2014 season.

While the Kangaroos enjoyed a comfortable victory during the Anzac Test, it was the Kiwis who dominated the Four Nations, including a 22-18 win over Australia in the final. 2015 saw New Zealand outclass Australia 26-12 in the Anzac Test, their third straight over the Kangaroos.

That loss saw Australia relinquish their hold on the number one world ranking, and Tim Sheens later stepped down as national coach. Mal Meninga was named as his replacement in December.

In his first team announcement, Meninga raised eyebrows by naming Darius Boyd at fullback in place of the injured Billy Slater, opting against alternate options such as Greg Inglis and James Tedesco. However the former Queensland coach did name four debutants in the side, including Semi Radradra and Blake Ferguson on the wings.
