Bledisloe Cup II match review: All Blacks too good again
Our Wallabies fought hard against a strong All Blacks side going down 40-12 in Eden Park.
Called on Macquarie Sports Radio by Mark Braybrook, James Willis, and special guest Alan Jones. The Wallabies held in till the 38th minute when Beauden Barrett went over for a 38th minute try putting the score at 14-7 in favor of the All Blacks.
On Macquarie Sports Radio special guest commentator Alan Jones stated that the All Blacks, “train under pressure, they train for match situations.”
Having fixed their line out woes from their 38-13 defeat in the first match the Wallabies seemed to have been caught out in turnovers.
“Under Hanson they’ve met all of these circumstances before, any number of times” said Alan Jones after All Blacks scored one of their 6 tries.
The win sees the All Blacks hold the Bledisloe Cup for another year and their unbeaten streak at Eden Park go to 42 unbeaten tests, with France being the last side to do so in 1994.
The Wallabies will have some time under their belt till their next meet against the All Blacks when they face each other in Japan on the 27th of October.
