Australia will be out to end a decade-long wait for a Four Nations final victory over New Zealand when the sides meet at Anfield in the early hours of Monday (AEDT). Air Max 1 France Pas Cher .Despite having appeared in all eight of the Tri/Four Nations Finals since 1999,Australia have lost three to New Zealand with their last success over the Kiwis coming in 2006 in Brisbane.David Kidwells side were unconvincing in their opening three matches and held to a shock draw by Scotland last week in Workington before Australia beat England to confirm their spot in the decider.However, the Kangaroos are well aware of the the Kiwis prowess in tournament finals having been beaten in the 2005, 2010 and 2014 Four Nations finals in addition to the 2008 World Cup.We dont need to be reminded about what New Zealand are capable of, Kangaroos halfback Cooper Cronk told AAP.They have one of the best props in the world in Jesse Bromwich, the reigning Dally M Medal winner in Jason Taumalolo and Shaun Johnson who is one of the best halfbacks in the world.What has happened in the past means nothing, but teams know each other inside out and the match will be won by the best team on the day. Hopefully that will be us.After losing three straight matches against the Kiwis, Australia under Mal Meninga, has now won the last three by a combined margin of 56-14.The Kangaroos have also not lost at a neutral venue since the shock 24-0 defeat at Elland Road in 2005, with their worst result against the Kiwis since then coming in a 20-all draw in London in 2009.Since that stalemate at the Stoop ground in Twickenham, Australia have won 16 straight matches in Europe with Johnathan Thurston playing a key role in nearly all of them.Thurston will play his last match on English soil on Sunday and will call time on his representative career after the Rugby League World Cup next year.Ive real fond memories of playing on English soil, in fact some of my fondest in the green and gold have been here, Thurston said.Winning the Four Nations tournament in 09 and 11 and obviously the (2013) World Cup at Old Trafford.Ive indicated to Mal that its my goal to make that World Cup squad next year so, providing my form is warranted for selection, Ill be putting my hand up, but that will probably be the end of my representative career.Its going to be sad, he said. Ive loved playing for my country and Ive loved playing for my state but it has to come to an end some time.New Zealand will be without experienced five-eighth Thomas Leuluai who is out due to a broken jaw and Thurston said the loss of the former Warriors playmaker will place more expectation on halfback Shaun Johnson.Even though they might have just limped into the final, the Kiwis know how to win tournaments and they know how to play in big games, Thurston said.But theres going to be a lot of pressure on Johnsons shoulders to create opportunities for them but their strength is definitely their forward pack.Whenever theyve won tournaments, its been through their forward pack. So our boys need to match them in the middle third if we are to have any hope of winning this game.Kangaroos team: Darius Boyd, Valentine Holmes, Greg Inglis, Josh Dugan, Blake Ferguson, Johnathan Thurston, Cooper Cronk, Matt Scott, Cameron Smith, Aaron Woods, Boyd Cordner, Matt Gillett, Trent Merrin. Interchange: David Klemmer, Shannon Boyd, Michael Morgan, Tyson Frizzell, Justin ONeill, Jake Trbojevic. (two to be omitted). Vente Air Max 1 . It just didnt show when he hit the ice.
