New Zealand 19, Australia 18 in Sydney (Bledisloe Cup; Tri Nations)
New Zealand defeated Australia 19-18 scoring a penalty goal only minutes from the end of this pulsating test match. Australia held a points advantage for most of the game. Ahead 12-3 at halftime they tackled the All Blacks relentlessly forcing many errors and turnovers. But the Aussies just didn't get enough possession to score a try.
New Zealand scored the only try mid-way through the second half and then held off a desperate last minute Australian attack that very nearly succeeded in producing a try. It was a great game of rugby full of action.
