Kiwis beat Great Britain in rugby league

The New Zealand rugby league team have beaten the Great Britain Lions 12-8 in Auckland. 

Great Britain had the better of the first half but went in drawing 2-2 at the interval.

However, New Zealand took control after half-time, Roger Tuivasa-Sheck’s brilliance setting up Jamayne Isaako, before Corey Harawira-Naera powered over.

Those tries were enough for the Kiwis, despite Daryl Clark’s reply.

Jermaine McGillvary almost had a chance to score in the final moments, but Kenny Bromwich produced a stunning last-ditch tackle.

In the other game a Tongan invitational XIII claimed a slice of history when they beat world No.1 Australia 16-12.

The victory comes a week after Tonga upset Great Britain, and two years after they also knocked off New Zealand during their fairytale run in the 2017 World Cup.
