New Zealand capped a wonderful unbeaten 4 Nations display with a win over Australia in Wellington on Saturday.

Despite the Aussies posting tries at the start of each half, New Zealand held firm with Manu Vatuvei scoring 2 tries, one of which was an amazing fingertip effort in the corner.

In one of the sports most defining moments of 2014, international Rugby League was rocked by a decision deemed controversial in some quarters.

Australia reeling from a defeat to New Zealand in the first game, needed to make amends and post a win to keep themselves in the tournament.

The competition being held in Australia was at 16-12 to the Australians, Australian Greg Inglis looked to have knocked the ball dead, Australian referee Gerard Sutton referred it up to Australian video referee Bernard Sutton but the Australians decided to disallow it saying the ball was on the way up when it was touched by Ryan Hall.

After one of the most tightly contested super leagues in years and with the dawn of a new era upon the sport, the Saints pulled off an unlikely victory at the theatre of dreams on Saturday.

Following an unbelievable loss of composure by Ben Flowers in the 3rd minute, both teams having chances with only a penalty apiece to separate until Wigan, down to 12 men soldiered to a try by young Joe Burgess just before half time, Matty Smith missing that conversion and another penalty.

After learning of the devastating extent of the injury to Alex McKinnon in Australia, I wanted to look at the topic of player safety within our sport. Thankfully, this sort of thing is especially rare in Rugby League but over recent years the issue of player safety has, it seems, arose more frequently than in the years preceding. We have seen the illegalisation of the ‘shoulder charge’, ‘cannonball’ and ‘chicken wing’ tackles over the last few seasons, as well a vast increase in the penalisation for ‘tip tackles’ - putting a player in a dangerous position.

I’ll start by nailing my colours well and truly to the mast, I’ve never really liked the on-report system. For me it is an easy cop-out for the weak referee; punishes the player after the event rather than benefitting the team offended against; and is a wholly unsatisfactory way to deal with incidents which incense supporters, rile players, and potentially effect results.

It is time we had a re-think and encouraged our referees to be empowered on the pitch and make the decisions to punish the offender’s on-the-spot ensuring that their team pays the penalty for their indiscretions.

Most supporters of the game will agree that the World Cup as a whole was a successful show piece for rugby league on the international stage. Profits were made, many games were well contested, crowd numbers were above expectations, and there was a genuine interest in the event. Detractors, however, would argue in direct contrast. There was no major sponsor for the event, the big three teams continued to dominate, the final was one-sided, and apart from Australia, England, France, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea, most teams relied on heritage players to be competitive.
