Still a big challenge for Kiwis

7:26 am on 3 May 2011

New Zealand rugby league captain Benji Marshall says the Kiwis still do not think they are better than the Kangaroos, despite recent success against the arch rivals.

The Kiwis could lay claim to favouritism for Friday night's ANZAC Test on the Gold Coast after making a habit of upsetting the Kangaroos in tournaments.

They are World Cup champions and will defend their Four Nations crown later this year, having beaten the Kangaroos in those finals in 2008 and 2010 respectively.

But Marshall hinted the Kiwis can only start claiming bragging rights once they regularly claimed victory over the Kangaroos, including the annual mid-year Test....

The Kiwis have retained 13 of their 2010 champion Four Nations squad.
