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. Boosting some of the game’s finest players, many favoured the Kangaroos to win their tenth World Cup at home in 2008 in a canter. Australia however were upstaged by the Kiwis in front of over 50,000 fans at Suncorp Stadium in the final, to partially end their international dominance.

The Kangaroos avenged their 2008 World Cup loss ate the 2013 Rugby League World Cup in England and Wales. They were simply too good throughout the tournament, thrashing the defending champions New Zealand 34-2 in the final.

A full 75,000 seat stadium can be a pretty lonely place sometimes, especially for two Australians sitting in a sea of Englishmen – Englishmen who had pledged their allegiance to the Kiwis. And that was before we mentioned the cricket. The Rugby League World Cup final at Old Trafford on the weekend was my first […]

As expected the Australian Kangaroos walked into Old Trafford for the World Cup final as villains. But like all great villains, the green and gold machine won the English crowd over after eighty minutes of pure rugby league excellence. That is what the best do.

With about twenty minutes to go of the Kangaroos master class yesterday morning, I found my rapture at Australia’s silky skills beginning to give way to a rising sense of irritation.

Johnathan Thurston was man of the match in an emphatic 34-2 annihilation of New Zealand to regain the Rugby League World Cup at Old Trafford. And Quade Cooper wove his magic in the Wallabies’ gripping 30-26 win over Wales at the Millennium Stadium. Two fabulous games of football. The Kangaroos were almost perfect. The Wallabies […]

Australia v New Zealand: the return of the kings

Like the assassins that they are, the Australian rugby league team whispered their way into the final, breathing silent, cold and ruthless words to their victims along the way. New Zealand, playing concubine to their Mistress of (Mis)fortune, cried out in joy to make the final after Lady Luck connived to send England out of […]
