All Blacks come up with perfect response at Eden Park to keep Wallabies scoreless and cruise to victory.

British rugby critics say the World Cup is “the All Blacks’ to lose” with their impressive Bledisloe Cup victory light years ahead of the  “torpid” Wales-England clash.

Mick Cleary writing inThe Daily Telegraph,said Wales rose to No 1 in the world rankings with a “scrappy, gutsy win” over England (13-6) in Cardiff, but “the imperious nature of the All Blacks victory over the Wallabies earlier in the day [was] in stark contrast to the torpid, fractured nature of this contest”.

“The All Blacks were sharp, decisive and potent, qualities invariably absent here,” said Cleary, who noted England’s attack was “too easily neutered” and Wales were “fallible at the scrum”.

Nik Symon, inThe Mail On Sunday, also paid tribute to the All Blacks’ attacking elan in their five-try romp over the Wallabies at Eden Park on Saturday night, saying: “Normal order at the top of world rugby has been restored”.
