Toutai Kefu gives John Eales dramatic send off vs All Blacks in 2001

In what was one of the great moments of Bledisloe Cup and Tri Nations rugby, Wallaby number eight Toutai Kefu scored within minutes of full time in 2001, giving the home side a famous 29-26 come from behind victory in Sydney.

We featured the match highlights a few years back, but as part of their Magic Of Bledisloe features in the build up to this weekend's Rugby Championship kick off, ARU TV have put together this great piece on the classic match.

It includes highlights, as well as words from Wallaby legends Matt Burke and John Eales, the latter having called a day on his career after the famous victory. 

"The rarity of being able to hold that cup, and to say that we were part of a team that won that trophy.. it's a wonderful thing. That makes it very very special," said the legendary lock.

Eales discusses the try and shares what went through his mind as number eight Kefu went over for what is arguably one of the most memorable tries, and victories, in Wallaby rugby history.

The Wallabies host the All Blacks in Sydney this Saturday, 17 Aug, at 8pm local (10:00am GMT)
