League: Warriors fall to mighty Manly

Sea Eagles 32
Warriors 6

The Manly Sea Eagles steamrolled the New Zealand Warriors in Sydney last night to set up a repeat of last
year's National Rugby League Grand Final.

Before a Sydney Football Stadium crowd of 32,095, including a large chunk of rowdy Warriors fans, captain
Steve Price's men finally bowed out after progressing further than any other eighth-placed side under the
decade-long McIntyre finals system.

Rugby: Wellington beats Southland, heads to Cup final

Wellington wing Hosea Gear ripped the heart out of a brave Southland side, scoring two tries and setting up another in his
side's 28-19 Air NZ Cup rugby semifinal win in Wellington last night.

Gear must have booked himself a berth on the All Blacks' trip to Europe next month as, in front of coaches Graham Henry
and Steve Hansen, he conjured up a try in each half from 30m out and then set up Conrad Smith in the dying minutes with
a barging run.

Cup is lost as Roos roll on

Australia 46 Papua New Guinea 6

THE Australian juggernaut rolls on, and the only thing that can stop the Kangaroos from lifting the World Cup trophy on
November 22 appears to be … a Brisbane courier.

Huh? Yes, on the night Australia pummelled the Kumuls, the World Cup trophy was missing, presumed to be in the hands of a
courier who, also presumably, does not realise the significance of the precious cargo in their possession.

A computer meltdown, the Herald has been told, has meant the exact whereabouts of the trophy, which has gone missing
before (although on that occasion, when it turned up in a rubbish tip near Bradford, it was AWL for almost 20 years), is unknown.

Scotland 10 - South Africa 14: Missed chances let world's best wriggle off hook

SCOTLAND produced a bristling performance at Murrayfield on Saturday that coursed with power, aggression
and ambition, and rocked one of the world's leading rugby powers back on its heels.

On their 13th visit to Murrayfield, the reigning World Cup winners were off the boil, making countless errors,
forced and unforced, that let Scotland off the hook in the first half. But, much like New Zealand the week before,
they pounced when a chance appeared and did just enough to win the game.

Billy Slater and Johnathan Thurston scored hat-tricks as Australia reached the World Cup final with a
10-try demolition of Fiji in Sydney.

The reigning champions were heavy favourites and Paul Gallen put them ahead with just a minute on
the clock. And they never looked back after going 22-0 ahead after just 16 minutes.

Although Fiji battled bravely, they were no match for the Kangaroos, Brent Tate ending up with two tries
while Greg Inglis completed the scoring.

Australia will now meet New Zealand in Saturday's World Cup final and will be odds-on to retain their crown.

Scotland make four changes for Canada match

SCOTLAND have been forced into four changes for Saturday's third and final autumn Test against
Canada at Pittodrie. Full-back Chris Paterson, wing Thom Evans and flanker Jason White have been
omitted after suffering injuries in the weekend's 14-10 defeat to South Africa.

After missing that game and the previous Saturday's defeat to New Zealand, the fit again Simon Taylor
replaces Allister Hogg at number eight.

Rugby: Italy eyes Pacific Islanders
Mallett makes four changes in hope of morale- boosting win
(ANSA) - Rome, November 20 - The Italian rugby team is looking to wind up its autumn tests with a morale-boosting win against the Pacific Islanders.

After defeats against Australia and Argentina, coach Nick Mallett has said he wants sharper back play and fewer kicking errors in Saturday's game, which will draw a sell-out crowd to the northern Italian city of Reggio Emilia.

The Pacific Islanders are always an attractive side to watch but their defence offers opponents ample opportunities - a factor exploited to the full in heavy wins by England and France.

Kiwis stun Kangaroos to claim World Cup

New Zealand 34
Australia 20

New Zealand defied history, the form guide and the odds to score a sensational 34-20 victory over defending champions
Australia in the rugby league World Cup final in Brisbane tonight.

The Kiwis' triumph was sealed with 10 minutes to go with a rare penalty try, after fullback Lance Hohaia was held back by
winger Joel Monaghan as he chased a Nathan Fien kick.

English video referee Steve Ganson ruled in New Zealand's favour and Benji Marshall's conversion took the Kiwis out to a
scarcely believable 28-20 lead.

OUCH! Boy was I wrong about this game.


Scotland 41 - 0 Canada: Emphatic victory brings Autumn test series to an end.

THREE players - John Barclay, Ben Cairns and Ally Strokosch - scored their first Test tries as Scotland
launched a valiant bid to rescue their top eight world cup seeding with a 41-0 victory over Canada
in front of 17,651 fans at Pittodrie, Aberdeen, today.
Ultimately, though, the Scots efforts were in vain as Ireland just edged out Argentina in Dublin.

Nevertheless, there was plenty for the workmanlike and efficient Scots to take forward into the Six
Nations Championship as they signed off the Bank of Scotland Corporate sponsored Autumn series in style.
