29-9. Well, that’s better than 42-8, but not by a significant amount. Australia has coughed up the Bledisloe Cup to New Zealand for the fourteenth time in a row.
Another Test match against the All Blacks, and another Bledisloe Cup lost for the Australians, unfortunately. Last night’s 9-29 defeat in Wellington maybe wasn’t quite the debacle that some of the Wallabies’ efforts have been this year, but it didn’t give the nation a lot to smile about either.
The Wallabies went up against the All Blacks on New Zealander soil on Saturday night in the second match of the Bledisloe Cup for 2016, and the result wasn’t much better than the first attempt, unfortunately.
The rumblings are getting louder to sack Michael Cheika as Wallaby coach
New Zealand have taken the Bledisloe Cup home for the 14th consecutive year, sealing the series with a strong 29-9 win over the Wallabies in Wellington.
