2014 Four Nations New Zealand vs England

Four Nations Match Report Kiwis scrape home against Poms

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.

New Zealand will be aiming for a hat-trick of Four Nations wins and England, desperate for a place in the final, when the two nations meet on Saturday.

New Zealand has seen off Australia and Samoa in the past two weeks and could still advance to the decider with a draw or a close loss. England has one victory from two games, over Samoa, but if they defeat the Kiwis by 10 points or more they will earn a spot in the final.

So come this Saturday in the land of the long white cloud we will be expecting nothing less from this encounter.

2014 Rugby League Four Nations - New Zealand vs Samoa

Match Report: New Zealand gets out of jail in classic

 

By John Davidson, 2/11/14

A late try to Shaun Kenny-Dowall has saved New Zealand’s blushes and earned a two-point win over Samoa in the Four Nations.

The Kiwis were below par, well below what they dished up against Australia last weekend, but the loss will be heart-breaking for the Samoans. The Pacific Islanders led for large parts of the match in a very impressive display and looked home with five minutes left.

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.
