World Media Reacts as Wallabies Crushed by ABs
The All Blacks clinched the Rugby Championship title after once more dishing up a dose of misery to the Wallabies at fortress Eden Park, Stuff sports reporters write. The media website provides reactions to the win, including from News.com.au, The Sydney Morning Herald, The Guardian and The Telegraph.
“Crocodile Dundee was in the cinemas the last time Australia won at the All Blacks’ Eden Park fortress and it is more than 20 years, and now 27 tests, since the Wallabies won anywhere on the old foe’s territory,” Harri Thomas writes for The Telegraph.
“The All Blacks came out on top in almost all set-pieces throughout the match, particularly at the scrum where tighthead prop Tyrel Lomax was a powerhouse.”
The Guardian’s Matt McIlraith wrote: “To add salt to the Wallabies’ wounds, the damning statistical evidence confirms that, with six losses in less than 12 months the current edition of the All Blacks are the worst of the professional era – exceeding even the class of 1998 who lost five in a row.
The All Blacks’ first match in their Northern Tour campaign is against Japan in Tokyo on 29 October.
