Victory or failure for Kiwis on Sunday

9:34 am on 11 November 2011

The Kiwis forward Simon Mannering says anything other than reaching the final of the Four Nations rugby league tournament will be deemed as a failure.

The Kiwis face England in Hull on Sunday morning in a sudden death clash with the winner to advance to next weekend's final against Australia in Leeds.

Both sides have already lost to the Kangaroos and the English are arguably in better form than the defending champion New Zealanders.

Mannering says the Kiwis must win on Sunday or the tournament will be considered a waste of time.
