The Australia Kangaroos showed their class in the lead up to the Four Nations with a convincing 26-6 win over the New Zealand Kiwis in their Trans-Tasman Test match.

Greg Inglis bagged a double for Mal Meninga's side, who will surely now head into the upcoming Four Nations tournament as favourites following their 20-point victory.
