The incredible hegemony of the All Blacks in the Bledisloe Cup

The Bledisloe Cup It started in 1931, but the first meeting officially took place a year later. It bears that name because the Lord Bledisloe, Governor of New Zealand at the time, donated the silver cup to the pageant. From that date until 2021, the All blacks they were consecrated in 49 opportunities, the most important thing he won in the last 19 times as Australia it has not been consecrated since 2003.

New Zealand undoubtedly achieved hegemony in this event that began from the beginning by celebrating 49 times: 1932, 1936, 1938, 1946, 1947, 1951, 1952, 1955, 1957, 1958, 1962, 1964, 1967, 1968, 1972. 1974, 1978, 1982, 1984, 1987, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1993, 1995, 1996, 1997 and from 2003 it was a machine until 2021 winning 19 in a row.

Until the 1984 World Cup, where it began to play every year. the Bledisloe Cup was played sparingly. Between 1998 and 2002, the men in black failed to lift the silver trophy, becoming the longest streak without winning the championship.

Australia first won in 1934 in Sydney after defeating New Zealand 25-11. The group currently directed by Dave Rennie only managed to lift the Cup 12 times: 1934, 1949, 1979, 1980, 1986, 1992, 1994, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2002. The best record was the one obtained between 1998 and 2002.

The All Blacks achieved the longest positive streak in years winning that competition from 1951 to 1978, accumulating 27 years of total hegemony. Now, the Wallabies have been unable to clinch a Bledisloe Cup title for 19 years.
