    "I was really pleased with the performance of a number of players in Port Moresby and it enhanced my thoughts on a number of players.

    "To add these experienced players, as well as a handful of younger guys, to the train-on squad puts us in a very strong position."

    When Mansour is back in camp he should be a straight swap for Ferguson. That hack should never have been picked for Australia or NSW.

    Looking forward to this series, New Zealand look the strongest they've been in a long time, Bennett might be a bit of an x-factor for England, Australia look weaker than previous years although I reckon with the players named, they will be very strong & Scotland has been boosted by a few good NRL players so they won't be full of Super League reserve graders that will concede 80.

    NRL whistleblowers Ben Cummins and Gerard Sutton have been selected to referee at the Four Nations tournament in the UK starting later this month.

    Cummins, who officiated in this month's grand final between Melbourne and Cronulla, and Suton were selected by a three-strong panel that included NRL referees boss Tony Archer.

    They will be joined by Super League duo Robert Hicks and Ben Thaler for the tournament that features Australia, England, New Zealand and Scotland.

    Australia and Scotland will kick off proceedings in Hull on Friday, October 28.

    If there was no Thaiday, that'll be a team I'd like to see! Good to see they're getting rid of the old and in with the new, good luck Maloney and Moylan!

    New-look Kangaroos down spirited Bravehearts


    Sat 29 Oct, 2016, 7:52am

    By Chris Kennedy
    , National Correspondent , NRL.com


    Mal Meninga's revamped Kangaroos line-up was never seriously troubled in their opening Four Nations encounter, running away 54-12 winners over Scotland at Hull's Lightstream Stadium.

    The first ever Test between minnows Scotland and Australia saw the Four Nations debutants compete strongly but they lacked the polish to seriously threaten the might of the Kangaroos.

    Despite ringing a host of changes in keeping his word to give every player in his squad a run, Meninga's men barely missed a beat in the first half.

    Man of the Match Matt Moylan had a whale of a game at fullback, slotting into the structures beautifully and tormenting the Bravehearts with a slick passing game to help create five of Australia's tries.

    Fellow first-gamer James Maloney got a run with Johnathan Thurston rested and he also made the best of his chances.

    Despite uncharacteristically missing three conversions he scored one try and had a hand in four and combined brilliantly with second-gamer Tyson Frizell on the left edge.

    Lock Jake Trbojevic produced some bone-rattling defence in an assured debut and was rewarded with a late try; centre Justin O'Neill had a strong outing also but debutant hooker Jake Friend appeared to try a bit too hard to produce something after being brought on after half-time and produced two turnovers.

    For the Bravehearts, hyper-competitive five-eighth Danny Brough was unsurprisingly his side's best, creating their first try and taking the fight to the Kangaroos at every opportunity.

    The NRL contingent – in particular fullback Lachlan Coote and centre Euan Aitken – were welcome additions but the team overall just lacked the class to worry Australia.

    The rot started in just the fifth minute. After competing tightly in the opening sets a Brough error after Blake Ferguson batted back a bomb handed the Aussies a scrum at the Bravehearts' line.

    Quick hands from Moylan put Ferguson over on the left edge after he had wrapped all the way around from the other side of the field to get involved.

    At the end of the set from the ensuing restart Smith and Cronk produced a line from the Storm playbook when the skipper darted from dummy-half then wrong-footed fullback Coote with a grubber angled back in that was telepathically read by Cronk to make it 10-0 after as many minutes.

    From the very next set a lovely Cronk inside ball put Moylan into a yawning gap for a supporting Maloney to score and it became four tries in as many sets when Cronk earned his double supporting a Tyson Frizell line break.

    The contest was already beyond doubt at 22-0 after 15 minutes but the Bravehearts refused to let their heads drop and continued to throw themselves at the green and gold line but they also continued to be their own worst enemies in their rare good-ball sets.

    Instead it was Panthers winger Josh Mansour who scored the next two tries, in the 24th and 35th minutes, both off beautiful passes from his club captain Moylan.

    Scotland were finally rewarded for their persistent efforts in the shadows of half-time when Brough put in a lovely grubber for his halves partner and Huddersfield teammate Ryan Brierly to swoop and score to make it 30-6 at the break.

    With skipper Smith rested for the second half to give bench hooker Friend a run, some of the sting went out of the Aussies in the second 40. It didn't stop centre Josh Dugan producing two slick pieces of footwork to break the line and run 50 to score just after the resumption but that was Australia's last try until the 66th minute.

    The intervening 20 minutes saw some scrappy play by the Kangaroos, a lovely 70-metre intercept run from Brough, a head clash which caused Josh Dugan and Luke Douglas to end their evenings early, and one powerful try to Bravehearts lock Ben Kavanagh running off a short ball close to the Aussie line.

    The Kangaroos kicked back into gear late however with three late tries.

    Frizell got in on the scoring after going close a few times and yet again it came running a great line on the left edge off Maloney.

    Utility Michael Morgan – filling in at centre for Dugan – ran in off yet another nice Moylan pass while debutant Jake Trbojevic earned himself a much-deserved four-pointer supporting a Trent Merrin line break right on full-time for a final 54-12 scoreline.

    Next week both sides travel to the Ricoh Arena in Coventry for a double-header, with Scotland to face England and Australia and New Zealand to resume hostilities.

    Fulltime

    Australia - 54 (Cronk, Mansour 2, Ferguson, Maloney, Dugan, Frizell, Morgan, Trbojevic tries; James Maloney 7 goals)

    Scotland - 12 (Bierley, Kavanagh tries; Brough 2 goals)

    Crowd: 5,337

    Man of the Match: Matt Moylan (Australia)

    Only watched the last 20 minutes because sleep was more important, wasn't very thrilling though.

    Johnson field goal seals Four Nations thriller


    Sun 30 Oct, 2016, 2:30am
    By Jack Brady, National Correspondent , NRL.com



    A Shaun Johnson field goal has proved the difference in New Zealand's 17-16 Four Nations win over England at Huddersfield's John Smith's Stadium.

    Johnson's 65th minute one-pointer, while a fair distance from full-time, contributed to England's late meltdown where they proved to be their own worst enemy.

    With the try-line in sight in the final nine minutes, Gold Coast-bound centre Dan Sarginson dropped the ball cold in what could have been a potential match-winning play.

    No Englishman contributed to their hard luck more in the final 15 minutes than skipper Sam Burgess who came up with multiple uncharacteristic errors.

    England's one and only field goal attempt, from five-eighth Gareth Widdop, was waved away in the final three minutes.

    While Johnson clinched the result with the boot, his 80-metre intercept try from a wayward Widdop pass certainly helped the Kiwis' cause just after half-time.

    With the Kiwis extending their lead to 12-4, England hit back in the 48th minute through winger Jermaine McGillvary thanks to a handy Elliott Whitehead cut-out ball.

    New Zealand winger Jordan Rapana's second try of the game eight minutes later – provided from a magic Manu Ma'u offload – looked to have sealed the match for the Kiwis.

    However Jordan Kahu's missed conversion attempt kept England in proceedings.

    Widdop provided the equalising play thanks to an unbelievable two-man, over-the-head bat on for Ryan Hall to score in the corner – the winger's 29th try in 29 Tests – though it would all be in vain by game's end.

    Wayne Bennett's first foray as England coach may have ended in disappointment but his influence was clear considering his side's ploy to opt for two penalty goals in the first 10 minutes.

    In a relatively uneventful first half, both England prop James Graham and Kiwis centre Solomone Kata were denied the game's first try.

    That changed in the 34th minute when Rapana scored his first ever international try in the corner, just minutes after Kahu kicked a penalty goal of his own.

    Of concern for New Zealand however is the health of veteran five-eighth Thomas Leuluai who failed to return from a concussion suffered in the 53rd minute.

    With a huge clash with Australia beckoning, Kiwis coach David Kidwell may be forced to blood rookie playmaker Te Maire Martin.

    For England the equation is simple.

    They have to win their upcoming games against Scotland and the Kangaroos to give themselves any chance of playing in the Four Nations final on November 20.

    Fulltime

    New Zealand - 17 (Jordan Rapana 2, Shaun Johnson tries; Jordan Kahu 2 goals; Shaun Johnson field goal)

    England - 16 (Jermaine McGillvary, Ryan Hall tries; Gareth Widdop 4 goals)

    Crowd: 24,070

    Man of the Match: Shaun Johnson (New Zealand)
