All Blacks make statement with overwhelming victory

In the final home test of the year and at the favorite fortress, the All Blacks have made a statement that they want to secure the Rugby Championship title.

Erasure of unnecessary records that the All Blacks cannot. However, it could change the narrative more and more this season. This clinical performance of three straight wins was a big step towards achieving that.

After three losses at home this season (twice to Ireland and first at home to Argentina in Christchurch), the All Blacks beat the Wallabies with their familiar dominance over their traditional opponents. By defeating them, they gave a packed Eden Park ample reason to celebrate. .

Despite dropping two Tests in this tournament, the All Blacks’ bonus-point victory set the stage for adding Rugby Championship titles to the already safely secured Bledisloe and Freedom Cups. .

South Africa will need to claim a bonus-point win against Argentina in Durban tonight and record a 39-point winning margin to prevent the All Blacks from clinching the Rugby Championship title.

Aside from the overwhelming defense and continued display of strength from the forward pack (2 more tries from a vastly improved maul), Jordy Barrett’s excellent performance from the second 5/8 was the best performance of all. It stood out for Brax.

Other players such as Will Jordan, Rieko Ioane and Ethan De Groot will feature prominently in the highlight reel, but Barrett’s strong carry and defense in midfield will always be a theme, or at least an All-Star. Blacks coach Ian Foster should consider using him more often.

It’s worth noting that Foster left Barrett at No. 12 until the 69th minute before shifting him to fullback and injecting Roger Tuivasa Scheck when the contest was decided.

The All Blacks did not let their guard down, unlike last week’s late-fatigue exhaustion that saw them take an 18-point lead in Melbourne.

This week they put a foot on their throat.

The All Blacks continued their work, leading 17–0 after a first half largely ruined by a stoppage by Irish referee Andrew Brace. And some even scored five tries by the finish.

Their conceding of two tries (one on their last play) underpins the quality of their defensive work, which added Starch after some sloppy efforts last week.

In a tumultuous year, the All Blacks finished their campaign with four more away tests against Japan, Wales, Scotland and England, improving their overall record to 5-4. did.

After saving Eden Park Fortress, which was last defeated in 1994, they must initiate and deliver the consistent improvements required of this team.

As for the Wallabies, Oakland’s hoodoos remain after continuing their trend of coming out one week ago and flopping the next.

The sold-out Eden Park set the stage for a spiteful rematch after last week’s enchanting and controversial Bledisloe Cup classic at Marvel Stadium. Wallabies hugged boomerang formations to challenge the haka. Ioane and Caleb Clarke stood for a while at the finish looking down at the visitors.

Locals were overjoyed as Wallaby playmaker Bernard Foley stepped forward, took penalty kicks and booed every touch after last week’s controversial time-wasting call .

Two yellow cards in the first half put the Wallabies at a disadvantage. Jed Hollaway marched for a chip sweep alongside Harry Wilson at Dalton Paparii in the 2nd minute. The All Blacks dominated his scrum with his seven Wallabies but never punished Hollaway for his absence.

After an even first half, Richie Mounga broke the deadlock with a penalty in the 20th minute. It seemed that the shackles of the All Blacks had been released.

Jordan immediately launched an attack. A typical attempt was made to make Jordan look a lot easier than skipping his Petaiah. Ioane started breaking tackles for fun, but he should have passed to Jordan once.

The All Blacks’ roll resulted in a penalty try and sent David Polecki to the bin.

Koroivete Malika missed an opportunity to respond by stepping into touch, but otherwise the All Blacks defense was solid.

In contrast, the All Blacks regularly defeated the Wallabies, especially in counter-attacks in which Beauden Barrett and Jordan were highly influential.

That theme continued for the most part throughout the second half as the All Blacks launched a relentless onslaught.

all blacks 40 (Will Jordan, Sam Whitelock, Cody Taylor, Samisoni Taukeiaho’s try, penalty try, Richie Mounga’s 2 cons, 3 pens)

Halftime: 17-0
