On a Sunny, hot and windy Sunday Afternoon at Oki Jubilee Stadium at Kogarah, the Junior Kangaroos and Kiwis played each other!
The day started with the Australian team training session and fans had the chance to meet the players and get their autographs.
Both the full Australian and Kiwis squads were there to watch their junior counterparts do battle!
The game started well for the Kiwis as they were up 14-0. The Kangaroos fought back and scored two quick tries, however at halftime the score was 20-10 to the Kiwis.
The Second half got underway and it looked as if the Kiwis were going to run away with the match and led 26-10. They got a rather shock when the Kangaroos scored 28 unanswered points to win the match 38 to 26.
It was a fantastic match and a great day out for all who were there!
