澳大利亞30-10薩摩亞。袋鼠隊以艱難的勝利連續第三次獲得世界盃冠軍

澳大利亞在老特拉福德球場以30-10艱難地戰勝了薩摩亞,連續第三次奪得世界盃冠軍。

高超的防守表現為袋鼠軍團奠定了基礎,他們現在已經總共12次贏得比賽。

在擊退了薩摩亞隊早期的一些壓力後,Latrell Mitchell、James Tedesco和Liam Martin的嘗試使澳大利亞隊以14-0的優勢進入中場休息。

當安格斯-克里頓(Angus Crichton)因侵犯香奈兒-哈里斯-塔維塔(Chanel Harris-Tavita)而被罰下時,他們的人數暫時減少到12人,但他們仍然能夠抵擋住薩摩亞的幾次進攻,當卡梅隆-默里(Cameron Murray)在左角越過時進一步領先。

布萊恩-托奧的嘗試短暫地喚起了馬特-帕里什的球隊反擊的希望,但他們很快就被扼殺了,因為內森-克萊利和卡梅隆-芒斯特巧妙地配合,讓特德斯科從角度進入左角。

斯蒂芬-克里頓是對陣英格蘭隊時的金點英雄,他連續第二周以一次出色的攔截嘗試確保了薩摩亞隊在他們的第一次世界盃決賽中獲得一個可敬的分數線。

但這並不足以阻止澳大利亞繼續保持他們對比賽的控制,因為米切爾在最後時刻超越了對手,在吉拉羅爾人第三次以創紀錄的方式贏得女子比賽後,完成了得分。

在澳大利亞的又一次成功中,唯一令人驚訝的是Josh Addo-Carr沒能在這場決戰中獲得創紀錄的第13次嘗試。

然而,他仍然在綠色和金色的比賽中發揮了關鍵作用,在米切爾為這場比賽的第一次嘗試做了捆綁後,澳大利亞增加了他們的領先優勢,他加速越過四名薩摩亞後衛,找到了他的隊長特德斯科在內線的支持。

隨着他們步伐的加快,薩摩亞隊無法充分利用早期的一些良好的進攻位置,澳大利亞隊巧妙地將決賽推到了他們對手的面前。

在整個過程中,防守幾乎沒有放鬆,梅寧加的球隊將離開英格蘭,他們在六場比賽中只丟了38分。

雖然像Jarome Luai和薩摩亞的NRL特遣隊可能產生的影響被強調,但他們在很大程度上被澳大利亞抵消了,他們在世界盃上是連續的贏家。

儘管14次失誤和僅68%的完成率表明這遠不是一個完美的表現,但他們在關鍵時刻表現得無情而高效。


Australia claimed a third consecutive World Cup with a hard-fought 30-10 victory over Samoa at Old Trafford.

A superb defensive performance laid the foundations for the Kangaroos, who have now won the competition 12 times in total.

After repelling some early Samoa pressure, tries from Latrell Mitchell, James Tedesco and Liam Martin saw Australia take a healthy 14-0 lead into the interval.

And while they were temporarily reduced to 12 men when Angus Crichton was sin-binned for an infringement on Chanel Harris-Tavita, they were still able to withstand several Samoa breaks before going further ahead when Cameron Murray went over in the left corner.

Brian To'o's try briefly raised hopes of a fightback from Matt Parish's team, but they were quickly snuffed out as Nathan Cleary and Cameron Munster cleverly combined to send Tedesco racing in on the angle into the left corner.

Stephen Crichton, the golden point hero against England, ensured a respectable scoreline for Samoa in their first World Cup final with a fine interception try for the second week running.

But it was not enough to prevent Australia from maintaining their stranglehold on the tournament as Mitchell went over in the closing moments to round off the scoring hours after the Jillaroos won the women's tournament for a record-equalling third time.

The only surprise in yet another Australian success was that Josh Addo-Carr was unable to score a record 13th try of the tournament in the showpiece match.

However, he still played a key role for the green and golds, accelerating past four Samoan defenders to find his captain Tedesco supporting on the inside as Australia increased their lead after Mitchell had bundled over for the first try of the encounter.

And with a spring in their step and Samoa unable to make the most of some good early attacking positions, Australia clinically set about putting the final beyond their opponents' reach.

There was little let up in defence throughout and Meninga's team will leave England having conceded just 38 points over their six matches.

While much was made of the impact the likes of Jarome Luai and Samoa's NRL contingent could have they were largely nullified by Australia, who are simply serial winners when it comes to the World Cup.

And although14 errors and a completion rate of just 68% suggests it was far from a flawless performance, they were ruthless and efficient when it counted.
