BBC Sport - New Zealand 14-12 Samoa: Kiwis near Four Nations final

Kiwis leave it late to deny Samoa

A Shaun Kenny-Dowall try five minutes from time sealed a 14-12 New Zealand win over Samoa in the Four Nations.

The 2008 world champions trailed 8-6 at half-time but their comeback left Samoa still seeking their first victory over any of the major rugby league nations.

The Kiwis' win all but seals their place in the tournament final, having beaten Australia 30-12 on 25 October.
