New Zealand 29, Australia 28 in Brisbane (Bledisloe Cup)

New Zealand scored a converted try right on time to just edge out a much improved Australia 29-28. Once again the All Blacks showed the class they are in by building pressure at the end of matches to win. They nearly did the same against South Africa two weeks ago but McCaw’s decisions to kick for touch and not score points were poor decisions.

Australia were gutted at the end. They played the better rugby for most of the match but just couldn’t hold the AB’s in the last five minutes. Adam Ashley-Cooper scored a try in his 100th test but that last minute try spoiled his celebrations.

Following the match Australian coach Ewan MacKenzie announced his resignation as Australia coach.
