Young All Blacks winger shows off Julian Savea traits in edgy Bledisloe clash

Young All Blacks winger shows off Julian Savea traits in edgy Bledisloe clash

Blues youngster Caleb Clarke starred for the All Blacks in Sunday’s feisty Bledisloe Cup win against the Wallabies at Eden Park.

The 21-year-old earned his first start for New Zealand and demonstrated his raw speed and brutal power on multiple occasions, but while he failed to get on the scoresheet himself his devastating runs were key for the All Blacks’ momentum.

His first taste of the action came after 15 minutes when he made a break deep inside the Wallabies’ half and bounced off Hunter Paisami.

However the biggest moment of the game came shortly after half time when he returned a Wallaby kick in midfield, beating the first two defenders and refusing to be brought to the ground.

Clarke made about 50 metres in one run beating four defenders including Australia captain Michael Hooper to set up a dangerous All Blacks attack, which they converted through Ardie Savea.

The game also started with a real edge when Taniela Tupou had a disagreement with Dane Coles off the ball in the opening minutes in front of the packed out Eden Park.
