The New Zealand All Blacks Outclass Australia's Wallabies At A Fully Packed Eden Park

It has been 26 long years since Australia's Wallabies won against New Zealand at the Eden Park, and today wasn't any different as New Zealand steadily and ruthlessly worked their way to a routine victory in front of a fully parked Stadium.

The game was off to a slow start, the first score of the match coming 20 minutes into the first half, with Richie Mo'unga converting a penalty to hand New Zealand the lead. From then on it was an upward trajectory for the All Blacks, Will Jordan showing great speed and awareness to land New Zealand's first try that was converted, before the referee awarding a penalty try to New Zealand, after Australia collapsing a maul that was trybox-bound.

New Zealand came back in the second half and picked up from where they left, with tries from Sam Whitelock, Cordie Taylor and Taukei'aho all being converted, plus an additional penalty from Richie Mo'unga.

Australia pulled two tries back through Faingaa and Petaia that were both converted by Reece Hodge, but it was too little too late.

The match also saw All Blacks' electric centre Roger Tuivasa Sheck (RTS) make his test debut off the bench, when he got introduced at the 71st minute.

New Zealand will have to wait for the results between South Africa and Argentina, to know whether or not they are this year's Championship winners. South Africa have to win by a bonus and also a point difference of +40.
