New Zealand beat Australia 22-18 in the final of the Four Nations tournament in Wellington thanks to an inspired performance by half-back Shaun Johnson.
Two tries from Manu Vatuvei and one each from Jason Nightingale and man-of-the-match Johnson saw the home side secure a thrilling victory.
It is the first time that the Kiwis have recorded back-to-back wins against the Kangaroos since 1953, following their 30-12 win in the opening game.
