After a tumultuous triumph over England in the semi-finals, New Zealand’s Kiwis will meet Australia’s Kangaroos once again in the Rugby League World Cup Final this Saturday.

At Old Trafford in Manchester, United Kingdom, the Aussies and the Kiwis will go head to head at 2:30 PM in a clash of the southern hemisphere’s rugby titans. For the Kangaroos, who trounced Fiji in the semi-finals with a 64-0 victory, the match will be a chance to avenge their loss in the 2008 finals against New Zealand.
