A Victory for the Underdogs

Not to be outdone by their rugby union counterparts, NZ’s national rugby league side achieved a momentous Tri-Nations win against traditional rivals England and Australia. The BBC describes the NZ’s 24-0 victory over Australia in the series final as “one of the most remarkable performances in rugby league history.” Manu Vatuvei scored two tries and Paul Whatuira and Brent Webb each scored one. Australia has not lost a Test series since 1978 and the match marked their first scoreless result since 1985.
