Ambush 16-12 Kiwis.
As boldly predicted by THEFOOTY.COM, when all other mainstream media outlets were talking about the HAKA and Petro, the Kiwis have won the Four Nations Final against the Kangaroos 16-12. This final says a lot about international footy at the moment, with the first tries scored by both teams coming from monumental blunders by the match officials and then the game was evenly poised and the brilliance of Benji Marshall opposed to the pedestrian effort of Darren Lockyer was the difference. The Kiwis looked down and out, fifth tackle, middle of the field on the 50 metre line. Just over one minute left. Benji runs it, shovels out to Shaun Kenny-Dowell, who passes to the world's most awkward footballer, Jason Nightingale. Nightingale passes inside back to Benji, off Lockyer, who when tackled by Cooper Cronk, throws the ball over his shoulder to Nathan Fien, who scored. Many will say that the Aussies should have put the game away, but when the game was there to be won, there were five Kiwis to one single Kangaroo (Cronk). Where was the rest of the Aussies? Well Done Kiwis. A Great Win. I will post on Tim Sheens tomorrow.
