Forwards hold the key to England victory – Powell

Date 31/10/14

Super League Coach of the Year Daryl Powell is pleased with the way England performed against Samoa and believes that the game against Australia in Melbourne on Sunday will be another close encounter.

The Castleford Tigers coach is looking for another big performance from England’s forwards as they take on a much lighter Australian pack who are out to impress their coach Tim Sheens and avoid failing to reach a major final for the first time since 1954.

Four Nations Match Report Australia smashes Samoa

By John Davidson, Date:10/11/14

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.

By John Davidson. Date: 8/11/14

England will be preying for a Samoa win over Australia after New Zealand secured a great two-point victory in Dunedin.

The European side threw everything but the kitchen sink at the Kiwis but couldn’t get the vital result it needed to ensure their place in the Four Nations final. If Samoa can upset the Kangaroos then England will advance to the decider.

Samoa is hoping its third time lucky when they play Australia in Wollongong on Sunday.

Twice they have led late in Four Nations games, against England and New Zealand, twice they have failed to hold on to leads and lost. Six points was the margin with the English, just two points with the Kiwis.

2014 Four Nations: Will Kangaroos win in windy Wellington?


By John Davidson, Date: 12/11/14

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.
