Kangaroos benefit from ref howler in World Cup trial

Kangaroos benefit from ref howler in World Cup trial”

Coach Mal Meninga has less than two weeks to finalise his best 17 for the Kangaroos World Cup opener, with at least four positions up for grabs to take on England. However, the Kangaroos showed their class with tries to Tom Trbojevic, Josh Mansour, Dane Gagai and Wade Graham.

Australia beat Papua New Guinea 20-4 before backing up with an 18-0 triumph over Fiji, playing without star quintet Cameron Smith, Billy Slater, Cooper Cronk, Will Chambers and Michael Morgan.

Fiji Coach Mick Potter says finishing and fitness is some of the areas that they will need to work on. "We'll make some decisions over the next week or so".

Early nerves got the better of both sides in the opening exchanges with some scrappy play. He'll get this opportunity through the world cup for sure.

Smith and Cronk have a mortgage on hooker and halfback respectively while Slater looks very hard to dislodge from fullback despite pressure from Trbojevic and Valentine Holmes.

The Australian Kangaroos have won the Tri-Nations after beating the Vodafone Fiji Bati and the PNG Kumuls at the ANZ Stadium.

Kumuls' backline made a well-constructed move that resulted in Rhys Martin's try in the right-hand corner to register their first point of the second Tri-Nations clash.
