All Blacks come up with the perfect response at Eden Park to keep the Wallabies scoreless and cruise to victory.
The Bledisloe Cup is back on the mantelpiece for another year. The World Cup may be another matter but from where they were seven days the All Blacks are in relative clover.
After last week’s record defeat to the Wallabies in Perth, the New Zealanders were under all sorts of pressure on Fortress Eden Park this week to respond with a performance – and a victory – that not only tucked away the prized Bledisloe trophy for a 17th straight year but also established some much-needed momentum and confidence a month out from the World Cup.
They did both, and reduced a Wallabies outfit that had looked imperious a week ago to a rabble in a comprehensive 36-0 victory. The visitors coughed up double-figure handling errors, were crushed in the scrum, and never went close to establishing the momentum and dominance of Perth. As a result their dismal record on Eden Park stretches to 19 consecutive defeats dating back to their last win in ’86.
This was an All Blacks performance that not only eased the anxieties of a nation, but also settled the nerves of their coach who made some radical changes to introduce some much-needed freshness and urgency, and saw his personnel deliver for him big time. Bledisloe redemption has seldom been sweeter than this.
