We have to win back the NZ public - Kiwis

The Kiwis have upset the world champion Kangaroos 26-24 in their one-off Test in Auckland

New look sides was the story of the 2018 Trans-Tasman test match, with the nations facing each other for the first time since May 2017 - and indeed the first clash between the two sides on New Zealand soil since 2014.

The Kangaroos had their 13-game winning streak broken on Saturday at Mt Smart Stadium and tasted their first rugby league Test loss under coach Mal Meninga. Both teams were entering a new era, with the Australians lacking Cameron Smith, Johnathan Thurston, Billy Slater and Cooper Cronk, while the Kiwis were missing several injured stars, including Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, and they gave debuts to Joseph Manu and Brandon Smith, both of whom shone in an outstanding victory.

Manu upstaged his Sydney Roosters teammate, superstar Latrell Mitchell, scoring one try and setting up another in a rampaging performance, while Shaun Johnson was named man of the match.

Meninga said he would resist the temptation to ring in changes, saying their 11 errors and completion rate cost them and there wasn't much wrong with the side.

"I think we take a lot of confidence".

"That's a footy thing".

"That's a really strong win for the boys for where we are at the moment", Maguire said.

Abuse scandal: Pope defrocks 2 Chilean bishops
Defrocking, officially called "reduced to the lay state", means the bishops have been expelled from priesthood. Cox, who is believed to have returned to Germany after a period in Chile , could not be reached for comment.

"It's okay to do it tonight but we've got to reflect that over this next tour".

Saturday's game was their first back in Kiwis colours and coach Maguire said their ability to come back from a low point in their careers was representative of the character he wanted in his team.

Australia hit the front in the second minute with a well taken try by Valentine Holmes and regained the lead 12-8 on the stroke of half-time with a try to Dane Gagai, a late addition to the Kangaroos squad.

Valentine Holmes and Lattrell Mitchell were a unsafe attacking combination down the left-hand side and they created Australia's first try, to Holmes, after only two minutes.

New Zealand captain Dallin Watene-Zelezniak declared that the Kiwis would only continue to improve as they begun a new era for worldwide football by inflicting the first defeat in Mal Meninga's tenure as Australian coach.

Manu proved his superstar qualities when he produced a powerful fend to run over Mitchell and give the Kiwis an 8-6 lead in the 35th minute.

The Kiwis brand copped a black eye after Bromwich was stripped of the captaincy and he and Proctor were banished from the World Cup after being caught on CCTV snorting a substance off a drug dealer's phone after last year's Anzac Test.
