The first date of Three nations disputed in Australia had an overwhelming performance of New Zealand. The All Blacks not only historically thrashed the Wallabies but they also stayed with the eighteenth Bledisloe Cup consecutive. The end result was 43-5 after a first time that was really scary.
The first stage had the All Blacks intractable. The cast led by Ian Foster started the barrage and did not stop. At 5 ‘, the pillar Karl Tu’inukuafe was the one who sealed a great movement of those in black. Daugunu and Barrett were reprimanded in the first minutes, both for actions of excessive use of force.
Then, after several lost tries, New Zealand had a superlative Richie Mo’unga. On the 10th he scored at 21 and at 27 to start setting the pace of the match. At 30 ‘Dane Coles supported the last conquest of the visit in the first stage that went up to rest 26-0.
Australia started the complement with the momentum of a comeback. The debutant, Lolesio supported after a great personal movement from Petaia at 2 minutes. The Wallabies discounted and were excited in Sydney with a memorable triumph.
But, the All Blacks put the game in a freezer. New Zealand used all its experience to pass the time. The duel became locked and unemotional. Until, at 71 ‘and 74’ the knock-out blows appeared. Rieko Ioane and Jordie Barrett supported the tries that resulted in the final score of 43-5.
New Zealand celebrated in Sydney. Not only did the Three Nations get off to a great start, but it also took the Bledisloe Cup. Since 2003, the cup is absolutely black and belongs to no one else. Australia has not raised it since 2002 and it is already becoming a real karma.
