What can I say, every Aussie and his dog was out telling anyone who would listen that the Anzac test against New Zealand was going to be a one sided flogging. With the amount of negativity that came out of the Sydney media in the lead-up to the game I was surprised that anyone turned up to the game at all let alone 25,000.
Braden Hamlin-Uele, Corey Harawira-Naera, Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad and Zane Tetevano are in line to make their debuts in the New Zealand Kiwis’ coming Tests against the Kangaroos and the Great Britain Lions.
