Kiwis captain taunts wounded Aussies

12:11 pm on 5 May 2009

The Kiwis captain Benji Marshall has been taunting the Kangaroos ahead of Friday night's Anzac Test in Brisbane.

The Australians have vowed to redeem themselves after last year's World Cup nightmare against the Kiwis.

Marshall says victory for the home side in Brisbane would salvage a bit of Australian pride, but the Kiwis will own the World Cup for another four years.

Meanwhile the New Zealand Rugby League has appealed to South Sydney to contest a striking charge against their Kiwis' hooker Isaac Luke, who will miss the Test unless he defends the charge and wins a not guilty verdict.
