BBC Sport - Rugby League World Cup: Australia and NZ captains prepare for final

Captains prepare for World Cup final

Australia captain Cameron Smith and New Zealand counterpart Simon Mannering look ahead to the "great challenge" of Saturday's Rugby League World Cup final at Old Trafford.

This will be the third consecutive final between the two nations, with the Kiwis winning the 2008 tournament in Australia.

Smith says the final will not be a revenge match "to make up for 2008", while New Zealand coach Stephen Kearney feels his side will go into the final "as underdogs".
