Bledisloe Trouncing

For the first time in 50 years the world champion All Blacks kept the Australians scoreless, beating the Wallabies 22-0 at Eden Park and retaining the Bledisloe Cup for the 10th consecutive season. The Telegraph wrote that the All Blacks “monstered Australia in the scrums”. “It is the second time this year New Zealand achieved the rare feat of blanking the opposition — they beat Ireland 60-0. Despite the 9-0 lead at the turn the All Blacks were always in control and the points flowed freely after the break. With the wind behind him Carter landed a 53-metre penalty, which was followed by a try to [Israel] Dagg beside the posts. Carter scored the final penalty to extend the All Blacks’ unbeaten run at Eden Park to 30 Tests.”
