Kiwis crowned Four Nations Champs after defeating Australia

By Tamati Tiananga

The Kiwis were crowned Four Nation's Champions for 2014, after beating world champions Australia 22-18 in Wellington at Westpac Stadium. 

The Kiwis' victory was superb with Coach Stephen Kearney's men delivering a solid win on home soil.  

It was only a four-point difference for NZ, with Jason Nightingale, Manu Vatuvei and Shaun Johnson all crossing the line.  It saw playmaker Johnson come of age.

There is no doubt that the new mix of newcomers and senior players working as one has definitely paid off.

Players of the Kiwi team will now turn their attention to pre-season training with their respective NRL clubs for next season.
