Close Call in Sydney

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. By lifting their points tally to 184, the All Blacks also eclipsed their own series scoring record of 179 in 26. “The guys just showed huge character,” Henry said. “They just hung in there, got better as the game went on and pulled it out of the fire.”
