The Kangaroos beat New Zealand 34-2 in the final to regain the trophy after losing 34-28 to the Kiwis in the final of the 2008 tournament. Throughout the finals, Australia scored an incredible 272 points in their six matches (an average of 45 per game), with Jarryd Hayne and Brett Morris contributing 72 of those points through their nine tries each. Half of the players in the top 10 try scorers are Australian, with the non-Australian players being Roger Tuivasa-Sheck (New Zealand), Ryan Hall (England), Antonio Winterstein (Samoa), Manu Vatuvei (New Zealand) and Matthew Russell (Scotland).
