New Zealand’s All Blacks for another time secured a 38-7 win against Australia at the MCG, Melbourne Stadium in a highly stimulating and clashing game.
The game was filled with a series of unexpected events that simulated the Wallabies hampering two yellow cards to Marika Koroibete and Taniela Tupou to favour the All Blacks scoring three tries in a span of seven minutes.
In the first half of the Bledisloe Cup finals, the All Blacks were able to set a two-try lead before half-time with Shannon Frizell easily scoring the first try after a dislodged pass from the All Black’s lock Scot Barrett.
The Wallabies’ late response came as a result of the great line break from Mark Nawaganitawase before Rob Valetini scored for the hosts and a successful conversion from Carter Gordon who replaced Quade Cooper in the fly-half.
Before the break, Codie Taylor with the help of a rolling maul, made his name count in the scoreboard and changed the scores to 19-7 as they headed to the changing rooms.
The hosts faced another side of luck as the captain Allan Alaalatoa sustained a knee injury and had to leave the field after a dominant black scrum before Will Jordan scored a try to continue his scoring streak against the Wallabies.
With much aggression, the Wallabies had their opportunity to build pressure on the All Blacks but the black wall was tough to break through and as a result, Taniela Tupou sustained a rib injury before he was carded at the 57th minute and opening the floodgate for the guests to score three tries within a seven-minute span that was shared among the Blues Trio, Caleb Clerk, Telea and Rieko Ioane to seal the Bledisloe Cup for another year.
