THE All Blacks began with a throat-slitting haka and then made good on the threat as they ruthlessly killed off the Wallabies' Bledisloe Cup hopes and World Cup confidence at Eden Park. Using a brutal black wall of defence to stifle Australia's attackers, the fired-up Kiwis posted a dominant victory and re-claimed the Bledisloe Cup for a ninth straight year.
The final tally was three tries to two, but if this was a dress rehearsal for the World Cup final, perhaps it would be wise to hand over the Webb Ellis trophy now.
Continuing their reputation as the roller-coaster kings, the Wallabies couldn't replicate the intensity shown against the Springboks a fortnight ago and failed to stretch the staunch Kiwi defensive line.
In contrast, they allowed the All Blacks to make the most of their scoring opportunities.
The home team seized two tries in the first half and another controversial five-pointer in the second, and although the Wallabies scored two tries in the second half, they were never seriously in the contest.
Needing to win last night to stay alive in the two-game Bledisloe Cup series, Australia relinquished the big silver trophy and ensured their 25-year drought at Eden Park would continue
