Australia vs Samoa Rugby League World Cup final preview

While this is Samoa's first appearance in a World Cup final, it represents a 14th appearance in a decider for Australia.

Samoa's turnaround has been quite remarkable after a heavy 60-6 trouncing at the hands of England in the opening group game.

That comeback was complete when they defeated that same team in the semi-finals last week.

Australia haven't conceded more than 14 points in a game during this event, beating Samoa twice at previous World Cups by an average of 36 points.

Australia vs Samoa

The Australians will be favourites and enter with a clean bill of health, but a huge weight of sentimental support will be with Samoa.

In World Cups past, we've seen that sentiment go a very long way.

Not this time though, as it will be 3 in a row for the Kangaroos.
