THE TEAM NEWS
- Australia were too good for New Zealand last week and they will be confident of backing that up with a second straight success against their rivals to clinch the win in the Pacific Championships final.
- The Kangaroos were relatively comfortable for large spells and now have the luxury of recalling first-choice front row duo Payne Haas and Tino Fa’asuamaleaui after they were rested last week.

- New Zealand will need to be much better if they are to reverse last week’s loss to Australia with their opponents running out winners by an 18-point margin.
- Despite falling short in that contest, the Kiwis have not hit the panic button with head coach Michael Maguire opting to retain the same 17.

Australia were too good for New Zealand last week and a similar outcome has to be expected here. The Kangaroos have won the past three matchups between the two teams and the world champions will not be worried about what is coming their way. The Kiwis have the talent to pose some problems but with Australia being able to boast an even stronger team this week, it is hard to see beyond the Australians.
BETTING TIP: Australia -6
