The thrilling Summer international Test series has concluded and what a ride it’s been! Undoubtedly the biggest matches were in Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa. Check out this smooth mashup that perfectly highlights the drama and emotion of the third and final weekend, from what was a brilliant round of Test rugby.
As you already know, history was made in perhaps the most compelling of the three when England – for the first time ever in Australia – won the series and completed the whitewash.
All three matches were played on a knife’s edge and perhaps could’ve gone differently but there’s no arguing who the better team is on current form.
Elsewhere, there will be some serious heartbreak and perhaps sober reflection on a series that could’ve been well in hand. Ireland comes to mind as they played their hearts out, but fell short to the Springboks in suspenseful fashion.
As with the Wallabies, coach Warren Gatland and Wales found themselves on the short end of a 3-0 series sweep, which also included a loss to an under-strength Chiefs squad.
Going into the upcoming Rugby Championship it’ll certainly be difficult to predict how South Africa and Australia will compete against the sensational All Blacks, as they undoubtedly looked like the best side in the world.
It makes for a fascinating prospect, especially when you throw Argentina into the mix. All in all, it’s a wonderful time to be a rugby fan, and we no doubt have plenty more great moments to come.
