    Congratulations to Johnathan Thurston, who has just been named man of the match.

    AUSTRALIA 30 (B Morris 2 G Bird C Cronk G Inglis tries J Thurston 5 goals) bt NEW ZEALAND 18 (J Bromwich T Harris S Moa tries S Johnson 3 goals) at Allianz Stadium. Referee: Shayne Hayne. Crowd: 25,429.

    Gallant performance by a new-look Kiwis side but after a sluggish start, Australia's class told in the end as they equalled the record of most successive Test wins (16).

     

    73 min: And the Kangaroos make the visitors pay immediately with Cooper Cronk finishing a superb back line foray. Thurston raises the flags from in front, and the game is all but over. KANGAROOS 30-18

    72 min: Great work by the Kangaroos, defending back-to-back sets on their line. Another disappointing kick, by Johnson, on the last takes the pressure off the Aussies.

    65 min: Crowd of 25,429 - quite respectable considering the popular belief the Kiwis would be smashed.

    61 min: Greg Inglis scores. Weight of possession and the class of the Kangaroos back line is beginning to take its toll on the Kiwis. Thurston makes it 4 from 4. KANGAROOS 24-18

    57 min: Hiku's hands let him down again. Hasn't been the best of debuts. Danger time for the Kiwis once again.

    52 min: Kangaroos hit back with Brett Morris crossing for his second, thanks to a sublime cut-out ball from Slater. Thurston converts. 18-18

    51 min: Very ordinary kick on the last by Isaac John. Now that was reserve-grade standard!

    48 min: Kiwis looking threatening too, with Hiku chiming into the back line superbly before losing the ball in the tackle.

    43 min: Kangaroos looking dangerous early on with Smith's kick for a flying Darius Boyd just a little too big. Lucky break for the Kiwis.

    41 min: Cameron Smith sends the Steeden skywards to get the second half under way.

    40 min: The Kiwis hang on - but only just. Try-saving tackle by the much-maligned Adam Blair on Boyd Cordner. Kiwis 18-12, despite a 5-1 penalty count against them. Kiwis only 40 minutes away from a famous victory. Can't wait for the second half!

    38 min: Huge set of six coming up. Hiku dragged over the sideline on the first tackle after fielding a kick.

    36 min: Keeping the Kangaroos scoreless in the final few minutes of this half will be pivotal to the Kiwis' chances of an upset.

    32 min: Inspirational defence by Dean Whare, driving Greg Inglis over the sideline. A better tackle you will not see!

    27 min: Kiwis back in front! Sam Moa, on an angled run, steamrolls his way over from close range. What a return to the field by the mighty Rooster! Johnson converts. KIWIS 18-12

    23 min: No, the bubble still has some air in it, it seems as Kevin Proctor puts fellow Melbourne hair bear Tohu Harris over for a try. Johnson adds the extras to level the score. Proctor will look good in red, blue and white next season, if rumours are correct! 12-12

    18 min: Straight from the scrum, Slater and Thurston combine to put Brett Morris over for the simplest of tries. Kiwis were found badly wanting in defence there. Thurston converts from the sideline. The Kiwi bubble may just have burst. KANGAROOS 12-6

    17 min: Peta Hiku knocks on a Cameron Smith kick. Chance for the Kangaroos to grab the lead.

    12 min: Kangaroos bring the Kiwis back to earth somewhat with a neat try to Greg Bird, running off Johnathan Thurston on the last tackle. Thurston is on target with the kick, and to make matters worse for the Kiwis, Sam Moa has gone off injured. 6-6

    6 min: And so will that try by prop Jesse Bromwich, who burrowed over from dummy half. First try the Kangaroos have conceded in five matches. A bit of a 'softie' too. Shaun Johnson converts. KIWIS 6-0

    4 min: Kiwis force a Kangaroos drop-out. Solid start by the underdogs; will do their confidence the world of good.

    2 min: Shaky start by Billy Slater, spilling a bomb near his posts. Looked like a knock-on but referee Shayne Hayne saw it differently.

    1 min: And we're away, folks, with the Kiwis kicking off.

    Anthems and haka done and dusted. Let's get it on!

    In news just in, former Kiwi fullback Kevin Locke has been released by the Warriors and will join big-spending Salford. Very handy pick-up by the Red Devils, whose excitable owner Dr Marwan Koukash boasted on Twitter: "Finally, we found the key to the Locke"! Love your work, Doc!

    Good evening, and welcome to our live coverage of the first rep match of the season. Both teams have made one change to their listed teams. Nate Myles will start at prop for the Kangaroos, with James Tamou moving to the bench, for the Kangaroos; while as widely speculated, Tohu Harris will begin the match at five-eighth instead of Isaac John, who will probably be injected into the match around the 20-minute mark when play opens up somewhat.

    Australia: Billy Slater, Brett Morris, Greg Inglis, Josh Morris, Darius Boyd, Johnathan Thurston, Cooper Cronk, Matt Scott, Cameron Smith (capt), Nate Myles, Greg Bird, Boyd Cordner, Paul Gallen. Int: Daly Cherry-Evans, Matt Gillett, James Tamou, Corey Parker, Brent Tate (18th man)

    NZ: Peta Hiku, Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, Dean Whare, Gerard Beale, Jason Nightingale, Tohu Harris, Shaun Johnson, Jesse Bromwich, Ben Henry, Sam Moa, Simon Mannering (capt), Kevin Proctor, Adam Blair. Int: Siliva Havili, Martin Taupau, Greg Eastwood, Isaac John, Kenny Bromwich (18th man).

    • Kiwis were great, showed holes in the ageing Aussie squad. Hope Laurie Daley was watching, and didn't Slater look dodgy tonight?

    • How can channel 9 call it self the "home of league" when it does not show a test match involving our national team in South Australia. We know we aren't a league state but this pathetic excuse of ratings does not wash. This issue needs to be looked at by the NRL. No club footy or origin either. Very frustrating as s member of the Sea Eagles.

    • Embarrassing referring gave the Aussies the game. The NZ team was near the Aussie line and the Australian players were no where near having one foot on the try line some were stashing behind the play the ball line across the field!! Disgusting how oz is looked after by the ref. any wonder they win with 14 players on the field? Meanwhile the Aussies were milking penalties while NZ deserved genuine penalties that were over looked. The refereeing is now making a farce of international games.
