Highlights from Wallabies vs All Blacks First Bledisloe Cup Test

Highlights from Wallabies vs All Blacks First Bledisloe Cup Test”

It was looking like another horror show for the Wallabies with the All Blacks chalking up another try as the missed tackle stats started to rack up for the home side.

It was New Zealand's biggest score over Australia, eclipsing their 51-20 win in Auckland three years ago and puts them well on the way to holding on to the trans-Tasman Bledisloe Cup, which they have held since 2003.

JEROME Kaino has returned to New Zealand, leaving the All Blacks Bledisloe Cup camp in Sydney after The Daily Telegraph alleged that he had been cheating on his wife with a former Australian model.

"Australia had a month together to try and create stuff. and they come up with that in the first half".

The onslaught continued with the All Blacks' seventh and eighth tries in the opening minutes of the second half as the Wallabies trailed 54-6.

In last year's bloodbath against New Zealand in Sydney, the full-time margin was 34 points.

Coach Steve Hansen's mind, however, would have been in two places hours before kick-off after it emerged New Zealand's team manager Darren Shand told police he believed Cheika was responsible for bugging the team's hotel previous year.

The rampant world champions piled on eight tries - including six in the first half alone - in romping to their highest-ever total against Australia.

The All Blacks, however, were more than able to separate on-field from off-field but will be annoyed they did not completely put Australia to the sword in the second half.

Midfielder Ryan Crotty had his first try after forwards Joe Moody and Brodie Retallick broke the Australian defense, Sonny Bill Williams crashed over in the 34th, and Crotty scored his second try in the last minute of the first half.

The men in black rewrote the record books; scoring their most points in a test against the Aussies.

Barrett's conversion gave the All Blacks an impregnable 40-6 lead at half-time.

The Wallabies defence was shredded again and Crotty scored an easy try near the posts after Beauden Barrett handled twice in the lead-up.

Rona scored a try on debut in the 52nd minute and when Kuridrani squeezed through a gap to go over the line in the 56th minute, Australia looked a completely different outfit.

Michael Cheika's side may have been a clear underdogs a Sydney's ANZ Stadium, but few could have anticipated just how dominant its opponent would be in an embarrassingly one-sided opening 50 minutes, before the Wallabies rallied with the match well beyond them.

There was a late flurry of action towards the end of the game as the Wallabies escaped a charged down Foley clearing kick as he got back to ground the ball simultaneously with Barrett and Israel Folau managed to find a bit of space before Ardie Savea turned the ball over as the final whistle went, much to the relief of Wallabies fans.
