New Zealand vs Australia, 2017 Rugby Championship

27 Agosto 2017, 01:18 | Fidele Alvizo

A win for New Zealand would see them retain the Bledisloe Cup for a 15th consecutive year, and to avoid it, Australia need their first win across the Tasman since 2001.

Cheika also took exception to Australia being penalised after an All Blacks knock on with referee Nigel Owens saying he was acting on advice from his assistant.

Foley missed another conversion minutes later after Will Genia crossed, hitting the upright for the third time to leave the door open for the world champions. I'm proud of the turnaround (from last week) and we took many steps in the right direction but in the end it wasn't good enough.

"We wanted to win so badly for Australian rugby tonight, not just for us".

It was the most points the Wallabies have scored in the first 20 minutes of a Test since 2005, which was also against the All Blacks.

Genia responded for the Wallabies to lead 22-21 before Ben Smith - in his last game before taking a break for the rest of the year - restored the lead for the All Blacks with 10 minutes remaining.

The Wallabies came within a whisker of avenging last week's comprehensive 54-34 defeat to the All Blacks before a last-minute Beauden Barrett try swung the tie back in New Zealand's favour in a pulsating 35-29 result.

"A more dominant team would have finished the job and that's something we can improve on", skipper Kieran Read said.

The All Blacks scored five tries by wings Rieko Ioane and Ben Smith, scrumhalf Aaron Smith and flyhalf Beauden Barrett (2).

"As Kiwis, we fundamentally like to think we play hard and fair and this is all part of it. we would like to think we are one of the best nations in the world at respecting the opposition", NZ Rugby general manager strategic relationships and planning Nigel Cass said. They have put in a lot of effort and have copped a lot of grief from back home and given it everything.

Hooper said the side had worked well in New Zealand but he knew the game was about delivering on the field rather than performing on the training paddock.

"The gallant loser thing's not on". They kept the ball tight, Australian captain Michael Hooper was penalised and the 80 minutes of high intensity was ended with a tap and kick into touch.

"No two weeks are the same - it could be a completely different game out here tomorrow night, we've got to adapt to that", Read said. Maybe the script was written. That's not what our boys deserve.

"We should have won it and I apologise to Aussies for that". If they can somehow upset New Zealand's rhythm they may be able to make a competition of this. Our next match in Perth will be huge.
