All Blacks retain the Bledisloe for another year

All Blacks retain the Bledisloe for another year

The New Zealand rugby union side has extended their reign of the Bledisloe cup to a decade long stretch, after smashing the Wallabies overnight 22-0.

Fly half Dan Carter kicked the All Blacks to victory, while fullback Israel Dagg starred for the home side, scoring the only try of the match.

The Wallabies couldn’t put a foot right in the first half, with Australia’s captain Will Genia being sin binned late in the first half.

Coach, Robbie Deans utilised his bench early in the second half, but it wasn’t enough to gain any points.  

It’s the second loss in as many weeks for the Wallabies, with Dean’s expected to come under a lot of pressure, due to the result.  

Meanwhile, in the other match of the Rugby Championship, Argentina has held South Africa to a 16-16 draw, leaving the Wallabies on the bottom of the ladder.
