    New Zealand took victory in the Bledisloe Cup this year in dominant fashion, winning the first match against Australia in Sydney by a significant margin – 54-34.

    A 20-point win didn’t really reflect just how dominant New Zealand were however as they led by a record margin early on before a quiet end to the game allowed the Wallabies to make the scoreline look more respectable.

    Australia did fire back in the second match of the series however and led for much of the game before eventually conceding defeat in a dramatic finish.

    The All Blacks came away with a six-point win and became 2017’s winners of the Bledisloe Cup even though the Wallabies had come so close to upsetting their applecart.

    New Zealand also won this year’s Rugby Championship going 6-0 undefeated in the tournament while Australia had an even split – two wins, two losses and two draws.
