There were plenty of decisive moments in the third and final Bledisloe match of 2013 – here are the five I’ve chosen to discuss.

The All Blacks, that is. Angry at that little John Eales led insurrection of a few years back, and, like Kitchener retaking the Sudan, it has been an execution, not a battle, ever since.

Only the Wallabies these days seem capable of producing the schizophrenic display they did on Saturday night in Dunedin.
160 Have your say
The frustration for the Wallabies against the All Blacks at Dunedin is that the quality of their play would have been enough to defeat virtually any team in world rugby, except for the All Blacks.

Experience and combination are the special ingredients – on top of all the other essential ingredients, like talent – that win Test rugby.
35 Have your say
Ewen McKenzie’s Wallabies didn’t win the third Bledisloe Cup Test at Dunedin last night, but they did the next best thing – they won respect.

Injuries continue to haunt veteran All Blacks Richie McCaw and Cory Jane, who have both been ruled out of the third Bledisloe Cup Test against Australia in Dunedin on Saturday.

If the Wallabies are to be any chance of beating the All Blacks this weekend they’ll have to play as well as they can against an in form All Blacks team.

Wallabies captain James Horwill says Richie McCaw’s late Bledisloe Cup withdrawal will leave a big hole to fill for the New Zealanders.

Gently does it is not usually the Cory Jane way. Yet All Blacks coach Steve Hansen wants exactly that when the 30-year-old makes his remarkable return to Test rugby in Dunedin on Saturday.

Matt Toomua will play inside centre and Peter Betham will debut on the wing for the Wallabies in the third Bledisloe Cup Test against New Zealand on Saturday.

All Blacks coach Steve Hansen is wary of the Wallabies’ all-or-nothing mindset going into a Bledisloe Cup Test where silverware isn’t on the line but reputations are.
7 Have your say
There are plenty of arguments to support the premise that New Zealand and Australia now play too much rugby against each other.

Australian rugby is in the doldrums. As evidence, you only need to look at the level of excitement generated by beating the 10th-ranked side in the world.
