Well it’s amazing what can happen in a week of rugby league. We just witnessed one of the all-time classic rugby league games where in the 1st Semi-Final New Zealand pulled a rabbit out of their hat with 20 seconds on the clock and pulled the World Cup rug out from under the English rugby league team.

A new-look Australian side meets a fired-up New Zealand on Saturday in a replay of the 2013 World Cup final.

The trans-Tasman rivals come together almost a year after the Kangaroos blitzed the Kiwis at Old Trafford and five months since Australia convincingly won the Anzac Test. Fast forward 12 months later and Australia will be very different from the 17-man outfit that won the World Cup in Manchester.
