When you realise that David Kidwell, Steve Kearney, Adam Blair - are the 3 people in the most important positions in NZ rugby league, you can only come to the conclusion that they want to lose.

Absurd mismanagement, incompetence and it’s horrible for growing the game in NZ.

Well done to Fiji

How poor was the end to that coverage? The full time whistle blows on one of the biggest world cup upsets ever, and channel 7 immediately cut back to Jim Wilson in the studio, for him to close up and pass the coverage on to the "international rules" series that AFL does with Ireland...

Poor coverage by 7 at the end there.

Yep, Kidwell is a dead man waking.

The three goobers. The kiwis/warriors need to hire the best coaches available, regardless of whether or not they are from NZ

Extremely poor, even worse considering the AFL was 15 mins from kick off

NZ should not be surprised. Kidwell is not even a top quality coach.

And it’s not even AFL, it’s a ridiculous hybrid with soccer.

I agree NZ rugby league needs a serious overhaul. Hire some proper proven coaches and stop bringing blokes back home for an all expenses paid holiday.

It was extremely poor form from Seven to cut off the World Cup coverage for something that is not even a sport. No post match. Terrible decision from them, treated our code with disrespect.

In any case, thanks for following! We will be back with our World Cup coverage tomorrow afternoon!

Fiji stun Kiwis to make World Cup semis

Fiji Bati have produced one of the greatest upsets in Rugby League World Cup history to edge past New Zealand 4-2 and book a semi-final meeting with Australia.

The victory marks Fiji's first-ever win against a tier-one nation and caps a miserable tournament for the Kiwis, who were booted from the quarter-finals a week after becoming the first top-three nation ever to lose to a second-tier side.

Fiji 4 (Apisai Koroisau 1, Taane Milne 1 goals) def. New Zealand 2 (Shaun Johnson 1 goal) at Wellington Regional Stadium. HT: 2-0.

Hopefully it is just medial ligament damage, not ACL. He wouldn't have been able to run on if it had been an ACL... though Jason Croker did it.


I remember that- played the whole game afterward and hardly missed beat. Most people are lying down screaming when they do an ACL, Toots just shrugged it off & got on with the job.

Toughest man to pull on the green imo. What about the time he took on the guys with a gun in Kingston & they had to take him out with a star picket. Played next game of course, stitches in melon.

Hopefully that NZ culture doesn't rub off on Rapa and Joe. You know it must be bad when the Raiders culture as seen as vastly better :lol:

I thought Rapa seemed to be down and possibly playing busted the whole tournament. He almost got run down with a 10m start from about 30 out in that first game.

The Jillaroos and Lionesses now walk out onto the field, and this should be a cracking game! Now the national anthems. Quite a good turn out at Shark Park for this match. Emotional stuff.

England are 1-17, Australia are as named.

We are underway! The Jillaroos have the ball in the first set of the match.

7th min TRY AUSTRALIA to Isabelle Kelly, she just reaches out and grounds it. The video referee confirms the grounding. It is on the back of a penalty to the Jillaroos for a ruck infringement... which was a little tough. The conversion attempt fails, hits the cross beam.

Australia 4-0

12th min TRY AUSTRALIA And what a try it was! A break from winger Meg Ward, off loads to Ali Brigginshaw... who streaks away and fullback Nakia Davis-Welsh backs up to score under the posts. Long range effort. Converted.

Australia 10-0

19th min TRY AUSTRALIA to winger Meg Ward in the corner. Simple overlap in the end, the result of a 65 per cent possession rate for the Jillaroos. Too much ball, too much territory. Moran fails to convert from the sideline.

Australia 14-0

22nd min TRY AUSTRALIA to winger Chelsea Baker. England fails to gather a kick ahead, and then the Jillaroos kick through again and Baker is there to take advantage. Baker fails to convert her own try.

44th min TRY AUSTRALIA to Kezie Apps, good work from Brigginshaw in the lead up. England's defence simply not holding up. It would be a hot afternoon for them, but the overlaps are simple. No conversion.
