my reaction upon hearing the result was OUCH! I seen a few Aus vs NZ RL matches between world cups and AUS always had the kiwis' number. I even caught one test match in Queenstown just before the Wales v France RWC Semi-final in 2011. The Kangaroos won comfortably. My hosts lost all interest as soon as Aus scored the third try. ...OUCH AGAIN! anyway I'm not sure if NZ believe they can beat Aus, and anyway, The Kangaroos are just incredibly good.
