The problem I see for Aus is that Kearney has the roster and the game plan to play just like them (defensive shutouts and technical high standards) a lot of what the kiwis are about now days is playing patient footyEngland need a real halfback, the bloke they had playing for them last four nations was mud.
Certainly their forwards would be a tougher challenge, they won’t hide from Taupau. James Graham would try and knock him out with his head.
Hah, wouldn’t that be amazing?
If we ascend too high they’ll start holding out players or get the judiciary wheels churning again, “Jesse Bromwich will miss the 2016 Anzac test for a grade 2 crusher tackle, Keiran Foran has been sent to Germany by Parramatta for tests on a sore knee”
And they still appoint the referees and their interpretations, choke holds and chicken wings are now legal, obstruction rulings re-written, stripping the ball from 110kg wingers of tongan extraction will now result in an 8 tackle set.
Only for international play you understand.
In seriousness, the 2017 world cup is the one to break them with, it will be held down here, can the kiwis carry this through for another 2 ½ years?
They will have a new, better, coach by then, will have weeded out a few of the passengers in the team, Greg Bird and the like.
And they’ll be more motivated in a world cup final, they just will be, especially if it is a retirement game for the likes of Smith or Thurston.
