Kangaroos Thump Lions

A top performance by the 2002 Kangaroos to demolish the Great Britain Lions by 64-10

Both teams started the game off evenly, neither getting an advantage.

It wasn't until the 17th minute that the scoring opened with one of several tries to the Kangaroos in the game. The Lions, after suffering the pain of two quick tries against them, seemed to lose heart and hang their heads.

The flood gates opened, and going into half time, Australia had a healthy lead of 34-0

The second half started as the first one ended, with the Kangaroos seemingly scoring at will. Great Britain obviously had other ideas, and hit back with two tries of their own.

The Australian then let things rip, and finished the game off well, scoring 4 very good tries.

All in all a little disappointing to have such a big gap in the scoreline. 11 tries to 2, Australia clocking up the biggest score ever against Great Britain
