RUGBY LEAGUE

New Zealand Listener - - THAT’S ENTERTAINMENT | SPORT -

In­ter­na­tional rugby league gets a triple-header on Satur­day, with the Ju­nior Ki­wis fac­ing their Aus­tralian coun­ter­parts (Sky Sport 2, 2.30pm), then the Kiwi Ferns tak­ing on the Jil­la­roos (5.00pm) and fi­nally the Ki­wis play­ing the Kan­ga­roos (7.00pm) in the trans-Tas­man showdown at Auck­land’s Mt Smart Sta­dium. Re­cent form favours the Aussies in every match, but it’s the women, in their first match since last year’s ag­o­nis­ing World Cup fi­nal loss to the Jil­la­roos, who have the pedi­gree. Watch out for back-rower Teuila Fotu-Moala, who was plucked from the Otahuhu Leop­ards to be­come a stand­out for the Bron­cos in this year’s NRL Women’s Pre­mier­ship.
