Kiwis the team to beat: Scott
Kangaroos Prop Matt Scott says New Zealand will be a different side when they walk onto Halliwell Jones Stadium, Warrington next week and feels their hunger for making amends after losing the Bill Kelly Cup makes them all the more dangerous.
The hundred and eight kilogram prop spoke in Sydney on Friday before heading to the airport for the upcoming Four Nations tournament in the United Kingdom
“I think it’s definitely going to be a different side (New Zealand) we’ll play over there.
“Not in terms of players but their mindset. It’s been a bit tit-for-tat lately with us and the Kiwis and I expect them to be pretty fired up and motivated.”
Scott says their recent Test win in Newcastle where the Kiwis were hammered 42 points to 6 was because “certain things didn’t go right for them on the day and certain things went really well for us.’
“We played some good attacking footy and hopefully the conditions (in the United Kingdom) aren’t too bad and we can still approach the game that way.”
The representative player admitted he’ll be turning to his peers for some advice on his first international tour.
“I’ll probably get some on the plane hopefully.”
“Like I said, the first game’s very important but also we’ve got to be aware of the fact that they do step up a level in the final.
“If we meet them in the final it’s definitely going to be a tough game.”
