Three seasons at the Warriors has taught Australian centre Brent Tate that the New Zealand rugby league side treat Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane as a home away from home.

Tate says that means the Kangaroos are more than wary of a New Zealand backlash for Saturday's Four Nations final, after the Kiwis were beaten 34-20 by Australia at Eden Park last weekend.

Tate says the Kiwis have fond memories of Suncorp Stadium, especially after their surprise World Cup final win there two years ago .

He says that makes Australia extra cautious ahead of this weekend's final.
