Watch the highlights from the final group stage match of the 2014 Four Nations as Australia earned a spot in the Final with a 44-18 win over Samoa at WIN Stadium.
After two conceding quick tries in the opening 11 minutes to Cooper Cronk and Greg Inglis, Samoa hit back through Wests Tigers fullback Tim Simona, who beat Cameron Smith and Club teammate Aaron Woods to score his first international try.
That reduced the margin to 10-6, but it would be short-lived for the visitors, as a seconds try to Inglis as well as tries to Daly Cherry-Evans and debutant David Klemmer saw the Kangaroos head into the half-time sheds with a commanding 28-6 lead.
Ben Roberts and David Fa'alogo helped reduce the margin for Samoa as they delivered a much-improved second half performance, but the scoreline again blew out in the final 20 minutes for the hosts as Cronk, Josh Papalii and Josh Mansour all crossed for tries to give Australia a 44-18 win and a place in the Four Nations Final next Sunday.
