All Blacks beat Wallabies to end Tri Nations on a high

All Blacks beat Wallabies to end Tri Nations on a high

The final match of the Tri Nations was won 33-6 by New Zealand as they managed to avoid becoming the first ever All Black side to lose three home matches in a year.

It was pretty much a dead rubber as South Africa had already won the Tri Nations title, but pride was at stake as neither Australia nor New Zealand gave up.

The loss for the Wallabies means that they ended the tournament at the bottom of the table, with just one win from six matches.

The All Blacks finished second, eight points behind South Africa with three wins from six after this emphatic win over their neighbours.

Following kicks exchanged by Matt Giteau, Dan Carter, and Berrick Barnes, Corey Jane scored the first try of the match after getting above James OConnor to claim a high kick from Mils Muliaina.

The All Blacks went into the break with a 16-6 lead, before a penalty from Carter and two late tries killed off the visitors.

Maa Nonu showed his strength as he barged through two tackles to score. Joe Rokocoko was also impressive, as he looked for work and was rewarded on the stroke of full time with a try in the corner.

The win means that the All Blacks have comfortably retained the Bledisloe Cup.
