New Zealand has won the 2014 Four Nations 22-18 after an intense and absorbing battle at Wellington Stadium.
The Kiwis got home by four points but had to see off a late Australian fightback, with a crucial forward pass call in the dieing seconds stopping the Kangaroos in their tracks.

New Zealand will be going for four wins from four games when they meet arch-rivals Australia in the Four Nations final.
The Kiwis have been the pick of the tournament, the only team with the perfect record. They started the Four Nations with a bang, defeating the Kangaroos, and will be aiming for the same result on Saturday.

It looked very unlikely after the opening match defeat but Australia has somehow found a way into the Four Nations final.
And they will enter the game as they start to hit form, with their confidence rising and their much-maligned forward pack starting to make inroads.
Hooker Thomas Leuluai has been ruled out of the NZ Kiwis line-up for Saturday’s Four Nations final at Wellington’s Westpac Stadium.
The Vodaone Warriors utility has started in the front row for New Zealand’s lead-up wins against Austalia and England over the past three weeks, but sustained a shoulder injury – as well as a badly gashed face – during his last outing in Dunedin.
Performances from Kiwi recording stars Dave Dallas and Tahuna Breaks will set the stage for the NZ Kiwis and Australia at Saturday's Four Nations rugby league final at Wellington's Westpac Stadium.
While the sporting archrivals are set for a rematch of last year's World Cup final in the main feature, tournament organisers have also secured a couple of musical heavy hitters to get the crowd pumped up for the main event.

Australia will play New Zealand in the Four Nations final after defeating Samoa 44-18.
In a one-side match the Kangaroos spanked the Samoans in Wollongong, racing in eight tries to three. Australia’s 26-point win is enough to book their place in the decider, where they will face the unbeaten Kiwis in Wellington on Saturday.
