Bledisloe heartbreak for gallant Wallabies

27 August 2017

Captain Kieran Read is braced for more niggle from the Wallabies in a last-ditch attempt to rattle the All Blacks and keep the Bledisloe Cup series alive.

Down 17-0 after quarter of an hour and again behind with three minutes left to play, the All Blacks found a way to come back and win.

"I've got to tread lightly here", Cheika said when pressed to explain why he was baffled by some of the refereeing decisions. "We had to dig deep, but those are the games, those little moments and I guess we just got one right at the end there".

"Any of that stuff does not excuse in any way us not finishing that game off".

The All Blacks needed a last-gasp try from Beauden Barrett to snatch a dramatic 35-29 victory at Forsyth Barr Stadium and retain the Bledisloe Cup on Saturday.

Cheika says it's clear to everyone that Retallick picked up one of their players up and put him on his head. 'He has got his arms through his leg, picked him up and then it's a free pass.

"There were some calls previous year in Auckland and we have been hit again here".

Never have I seen a coach with Cheika's record avoid the wrath of the media the way he has.

Australia, humiliated 54-34 in the first Test a week ago, made a flying start in Dunedin, scoring after just 26 seconds and they had three tries and an unanswered 17 points on the board after 16 minutes.

All teams in New Zealand's semi-professional and amateur provincial competitions would also observe a minute's silence before their games, New Zealand Rugby (NZR) said in a statement.

"We dropped a few kick-offs that were really crucial". (We want to) give people a smile on their face around the game. The ramifications of not winning that kickoff had the All Blacks within goalkicking distance.

However, Hansen said there is room for improvement heading into Saturday's clash in Dunedin as he seeks a complete display. "They've always been a good side".

The finances of the national union are not good, chief executive Bill Pulver has tendered his resignation and the issue of the culling of the Western Force Super Rugby franchise remains unsettled, with the state union getting a court injunction that prevents the national union from taking any further action for now. They won the kickoff and should have won the penalty.

You don't become one of the world's most dominant sporting teams by accepting lapses of concentration like the last 30 minutes in Sydney when they let the punch-drunk Wallabies recover to within 20 points.
