The All Blacks came out on top in a dominant display against the Wallabies in the Bledisloe Cup showdown on Sunday. With a final score of 36-0, New Zealand showed their strength and skill on the field, further solidifying their position as one of the best teams in the world.
The first half was a competitive affair, with both teams putting in the effort to try and gain an advantage. However, it was the All Blacks who came out on top, with two tries from George Bridge and a penalty from Richie Mo’unga giving them a 15-0 lead going into half time.
The second half saw the All Blacks maintain their momentum, with goals from Sevu Reece, Beauden Barrett, and Jordie Barrett. Meanwhile, the Wallabies struggled to gain any ground and were unable to put any points on the board.
New Zealand’s victory was a testament to their exceptional teamwork and all-around performance on the field. The All Blacks’ defense was particularly impressive, with their ability to shut down the Wallabies’ offense and keep them from scoring any points.
This win is also particularly significant as it marks the first time the Bledisloe Cup has been played in front of a crowd since the COVID-19 pandemic began. The game was played in front of over 46,000 fans at Eden Park in Auckland, providing a welcome return to normalcy for sports fans.
