Samoa falls short in Rugby League World Cup final
Apia, SAMOA — It just was not Samoa’s day as they were humbled 30-10 by the Kangaroos in the final of the Rugby League World Cup at Old Trafford in England.
But that was enough to dampen spirits in Samoa, as fans in Apia acknowledged the hard work by the team that has created history. A large group also spent the morning in Apia Park with events starting around midnight and stayed on until the final whistle.
It was Australia’s massive defence that was not allowing Samoa to make the grounds that they had done previously. Even with a one man advantage at one point in the game, Samoa was not allowed to make most of it.
