Kangaroos v New Zealand

Date: 1/5/15

Sunday’s re-scheduled 2015 ANZAC test in Brisbane could be the closest ANZAC Test match we have seen since 2010 when Australia snuck home against New Zealand 12 – 8 in Melbourne.

The Kiwis are on a role and Australia’s unbeatable tag was lost back in 2005 when New Zealand won the Tri-Nations Final 24-0 over the Kangaroos.

Since then the Kiwis have also claimed the 2008 Rugby League World Cup along with the 2010 and 2014 Four Nations.

On Sunday the Kangaroos will have history on their side with the Kiwis always falling short in the mid-season test. Either way International Rugby League’s popularity has risen over the last 10 years. So no matter the result hopefully the fans turn out for the match at Suncorp Stadium and both teams put on a display worthy of an International Test.

The live Telecast starts on channel 9 at 4pm with actual kick-off scheduled for 4pm.
