56‘ – Amazing pick up off his toes from Maddocks and the Wallabies are surging into the ABs 22.

Lovely off loads from the Wallabies and this could be a great score……….but then the pass to Hodge is not taken and it’s knocked on. He would have been in if he’d taken that.

45‘ – Goodhue in action again – he bursts through the tacklers as he takes the restart – is the Wallabies defence tiring already?

But the Aussies scramble back well and steal it back. Unfortunately the pass from Foley to Hooper goes to ground – was he a bit tired there?

Try
42‘ – WOW! Now that is an impressive counter attack from the All Blacks and Jack Goodhue completes a nice move.

Naholo stole the ball in the tackle deep inside their own 22 but they saw there was space outside so they span the ball wide and then Ioane was given some space and flew away down the field.

Good support from Goodhue and that’s a nice try.

Half Time
40‘ – An intriguing and frustrating first half from both sides. Far more errors than either side will be happy with and 10 penalties between them have made for a disjointed 40minutes with neither side able to find rhythm.

The Wallabies should be happy with their defence for sure – it’s been hard and fast and really put the pressure on the Kiwis’ attack. When they have had the ball in attack the home side have looked ok – they haven’t been able to get Beale or Falou in space yet and so have relied a lot on the forwards.

The All Blacks will be frustrated – they have made too many mistakes but did finish the half strong and finally got on the scoreboard in the final minute.

Both teams have defended well and the bench is going to play a key role as both sides begin to tire.

All to play for with 40minutes to go!

Try
38‘ – Good take by the ABs from a lovely high hanging 22 drop out from Foley.

Less than 2 minutes to half time – what can they do???

WOW – they’ve scored!!!! From nothing they’ve scored!

Aaron Smith gets the try but some lovely work from Naholo to keep the ball alive as he was being tackled into touch and Reed was there to take the off load and give it inside to Smith to go over.

It all started from Ben Smith breaking a tackle and the Wallabies defence was breached.
