Australia will face its biggest challenge in almost five years on Saturday when they travel across the Tasman to face New Zealand in the Four Nations final. 

Last week against Samoa, Australia seemed to have risen from the ashes. They were ruthless in attack and damaging in defence, recording an impressive 44-18 victory. It took only two minutes for the Aussies to get on the scoreboard, with halfback Cooper Cronk crossing in the corner, and from there, they punished the Samoans. The Australian forwards have been criticised throughout the tournament, but between them, they notched up 806 metres and 224 tackles, with rookie David Klemer starring off the bench, recording 137 metres, 27 tackles and a four pointer. Fullback Greg Inglis again showed his skill, crossing for two meat pies in a man of the match performance. He is again favourite for the Aussies to cross the white line first on Saturday, currently in the first try scorer market.

This is the chance for the Kiwis to cement themselves as the dominant force in international rugby league. With one of the best international halves pairing in Shaun Johnson and Kieran Foran , they are set to create history on Saturday. Last week against the English, they showed they can grind out a victory with thrilling 16-14 triumph. Winger Jason Nightingale continues to cross the try line with ease, recording a double against England to bring his total up to five tries this tournament. 

This may be a very green Australian outfit, but they have remained favourites in the futures market the entire tournament. Attracting almost triple the amount of investments than the Kiwis, they continue to garner attention at the -2.5 line from TattsBet customers.
