No chance of a final for big 2

Wednesday, November 15, 2017

Tonga's upset over New Zealand on Saturday has also ensured that if the Kiwis are to reach the World Cup final on December 2, they'll have to go through Australia in the semis.

The Kiwis fell asleep in the second half against a fired-up Tongan outfit after racing out to a 16-2 lead at half-time, conceding five second-half tries to suffer their first loss against a second-tier nation in World Cup history.

In a further blow for David Kidwell's side, the possible semi-final clash against Australia (provided they defeat Samoa) is scheduled for Brisbane, taking away their home-ground advantage following their quarter-final match-up with Fiji.
