New Zealand narrowly beat Australia 23-22 in the final Tri-Nations match sealing an unprecedented clean sweep in the southern hemisphere rugby championship with a record 1th consecutive win over the Wallabies in Sydney. New Zealand’s 15th straight Test victory makes Graham Henry’s top-ranked team the first to win all six of its matches in a Tri-Nations tournament.
