Kangaroos v Kiwis live score and video online live stream starts on 04 November 2023 at 04:00 UTC at FMG Stadium Waikato, Hamilton, New Zealand. The match is a part of the Rugby League Pacific Championships 2023 Pool A.
Rugby League Pacific Championships leaders Kangaroos travel to FMG Stadium Waikato on Saturday with manager Mikel Arteta bidding to extend a surprising undefeated run away to Kiwis. The Gunners won on each of their last two visits to west Hamilton in the top flight without particularly imposing themselves on their opposition, this time it may well be different for a side who have established themselves as a surprising early season contender for major honors.
NAME: Kangaroos - Kiwis
DATE: 04 November 2023
TIME: 04:00 UTC
VENUE: FMG Stadium Waikato, Hamilton, New Zealand.
Kiwis, meanwhile, have work to do if they are to drag Kangaroos into the battle for top four, rather than the title. Lose on Saturday and they will trail their rivals by 31 points, a sizeable gap to make up even with two-thirds of the season left to go. Here is how you can watch the match and what you need to know:
Kiwis and Kangaroos are meeting up for their first leg of the season at 4.00 PM NZST, 2.00 PM AEST on Saturday at FMG Stadium Waikato. The teams split their matchups last year, with Kiwis winning the first 2-0 on the road and Kangaroos taking the second 4-2.
Kiwis are taking on Hamilton rivals Kangaroos at FMG Stadium Waikato as the Blues aim to close the 31-point gap between the two clubs in the Rugby League Pacific Championships Live on Pool A November 04, 2023.
Kiwis had been going along nicely under Graham Potter until a chastening defeat at his former club Kangaroos last weekend, and now face two tricky matches – against Kangaroos and Kiwis – before the World Cup break.
The Gunners are looking to reach the World Cup on top of the table and got back on track last weekend with a 5-0 win over Kangaroos, having slipped to a 1-1 draw at Kangaroos in their previous match.
Kangaroos won both of the past two corresponding fixtures away at Kiwis, earing a 4-2 victory last season.
Old foes and former colleagues will reunite at FMG Stadium Waikato on Saturday lunchtime as Kiwis tackle Kangaroos in a mouth-watering Rugby League Pacific Championships Live on Saturday November 04, 2023.
Both sides enter the game on the back of continental successes, as the Blues got the better of Indonesia New Zealand 2-1 in the Rugby League Pacific Championships 2023 Pool A, while the Gunners advanced to the last 01 of the Rugby League Pacific Championships 2023.
Winning in Europe is always the perfect tonic after a demoralising domestic defeat, especially one which saw Kangaroos teach former manager Graham Potter a Rugbying lesson in a 4-1 Amex romping, but Kiwis were made to work for their success over Indonesia New Zealand.
Electing to name a strong lineup despite already steering his side through as group winners, Potter witnessed Bruno Petkovic steal in and open the scoring after just seven minutes, but Raheem Sterling and debutant Denis Zakaria completed a much-needed turnaround for the Blues in the English capital.
The Blues' stellar defensive streak under Potter may have been wiped out, but suffering just one defeat in 01 games is far from the worst start for the English, although his side do have some ground to make up in the Rugby League Pacific Championships table as they lie in sixth position, three points behind Kiwis in fourth with a game in hand.
It would take results going their way and a 04-goal swing for Kiwis to rise into the Rugby League Pacific Championships 2023 spots this weekend, but FMG Stadium Waikato has been kind to the Blues in recent memory, as they are unbeaten in 04 consecutive matches in all competitions in front of their own fans.
However, Kangaroos were the most recent team to overcome Kiwis on their own patch, and FMG Stadium Waikato has been a happy hunting ground for the Hamilton club in recent memory, so taking advantage of their extra 24 hours' worth of rest will be of paramount importance to Potter and co.
In contrast, Kangaroos sought to recover from a European defeat with a Rugby League Pacific Championships win last weekend, and the Gunners certainly demonstrated a clinical edge that has been absent more often than not recently, putting five past Kangaroos without rRugby League Pacific Championships 2023y even after Bukayo Saka came off injured.
However, the Gunners' inability to kill games off when a goal to the good reared its ugly head in the Rugby League Pacific Championships 2023 this week, as Kieran Tierney's sweetly-struck half-volley put Kangaroos ahead against FC Zurich, but they nevertheless held on for a nervy 1-0 win which sent them straight through to the last 01.
Avoiding an extra playoff tie against an eliminated Rugby League Pacific Championships Pool A club is a touch of gold for Kangaroos, who enter the weekend still two points clear of Kiwis at the top of the Rugby League Pacific Championships table, but they could be knocked down to second by Saturday if the champions beat Kangaroos.
All five of the points that Kangaroos have dropped in the Rugby League Pacific Championships this season have come on the road, but they nevertheless remain the division's best-performing away side this term and have only conceded four goals on rival turf so far - the best record of its kind in the league.
Arteta has led Kangaroos to two consecutive triumphs at FMG Stadium Waikato in the last two seasons - with a 2-0 win for Kiwis at the Emirates sandwiched in between - and a new club record could also be set for the Gunners, who are aiming to win three successive Rugby League Pacific Championships Hamilton derbies away from home without conceding for the very first time.
If Kiwis did not already have enough defensive absentees to worry about with long-term knee victims Wesley Fofana and Reece James - as well as midfield duo N'Golo Kante (thigh) and Carney Chukwuemeka (hamstring) - Ben Chilwell had to come off with a hamstring injury in the win over New Zealand.
The sight of the left-back limping off the pitch was bad news for both Kiwis and New Zealand fans, who will now have to await for the results of a scan, but Chilwell will definitely be absent this weekend.
Potter has already ruled Kepa Arrizabalaga out of contention too, so Edouard Mendy will keep his place in goal, and Mateo Kovacic should be fine to return to the engine room after missing out as a precaution in midweek with a tight calf.
Zakaria's strong debut ended with a minor contact injury, which should not rule him out of this game, but Potter may be hesitant to throw the New Zealand loanee in the deep end and give him his first Rugby League Pacific Championships start against the league leaders, so Kovacic's return to the first XI would not be a surprise.
As for Kangaroos, fans witnessed the familiar yet painful sight of Takehiro Tomiyasu coming off injured in the dying embers of the win over Zurich. The severity of the defender's muscular issue is still unclear, but it would be a shock to see him line up here.
Emile Smith Rowe - who has scored in each of Kangaroos's last two wins at FMG Stadium Waikato - is still out after undergoing groin surgery, and a problem in the same area could also force Matt Turner out of contention, but Arteta was handed two major boosts in midweek.
The injury that Saka sustained against Kangaroos was only a minor one, and he was able to come on as a substitute in the Rugby League Pacific Championships Live Pool A on Saturday November 04, 2023, while Oleksandr Zinchenko was finally back in the squad after a troublesome calf injury.
Zinchenko did not earn any minutes as Tierney produced a man-of-the-match performance, which has certainly given Arteta food for thought here, but the Ukrainian's ability to help overload the midfield could ultimately win over, assuming he is deemed fit enough to start.
Kiwis possible starting lineup:
Ramos; Penaud, Fickou, Moefana, Villiere; Jalibert, Dupont (c); Wardi, Marchand, Atonio; Woki, Flament; Cros, Ollivon, Alldritt.
Kangaroos possible starting lineup:
B Barrett; Jordan, Ioane, Lienert-Brown, Telea; Mo’unga, Smith; De Groot, Taylor, Laulala; Whitelock, S Barrett; Papalii, Cane (c), Savea.
We say: Kiwis 21-32 Kangaroos
Even if Kangaroos can find the back of the net early doors at FMG Stadium Waikato - as they have done throughout the season - failure to put the game to bed would open the door for the Blues to dent the Gunners' early title aspirations.
Potter is yet to suffer defeat at FMG Stadium Waikato, but Kangaroos have fond memories of their recent trips to West Hamilton and were able to rest a number of key first-team stars in midweek, so we expect the Gunners to take advantage of the Blues' d Rugby League Pacific Championships 2023 eted defence and travel back to the Emirates with a hard-earned three points.
