Once again in 2021, New Zealand with his Haka and game he intimidated Australia. The geographical location did not create a problem for the Bledisloe Cup champion (this was also the third match) who defeated the Australians 38-21 in Perth, by the second date of Rugby Championship. Next weekend, the Maori team will face The Pumas.
Inaccuracies All Blacks and Wallabies took over the opening minutes. The local team tried to take off at full speed with a try, but wasted many chances. Secondly, New Zealand managed to counter the incessant Australian attack with a wall of tackles that could never be broken. In contrast, the Wallabies did not defend neatly, generating offsides and conceding a significant number of penalties in favor of the men in black.
Australia had their chance to break the zero on the scoreboard with a single kick to Noah lolesio, but it was not successful. Then, after a dangerous play by Jordie Barrett before Marika koroibete, Beauden and Scott’s brother saw the Red card and left New Zealand with one player less for 20 minutes. Despite being one more on the court, the homeowner could not take advantage of the difference. Nevertheless, David havili, with time served, surprised the rival defense and closed the partial result prior to halftime in 18-0 in favor of those led by Ian Foster.
In the complementary stage, it was a monologue with four tries by the All Blacks. The Australian errors had an important seasoning for the conquests to come more easily. The persistence of the visitors did not stop at any moment. Will Jordan, Havili again, Anton Lienert-Brown and George Bridge they were the authors of the festivities in the second half.
Despite everything, the team commanded by Rennie tried to go for the discount and succeeded thanks to the arrivals at the ingoal of Folau Fainga’a, Nic White and Tom Banks. With many errors, the Australians did not show a balanced level in these three meetings against New Zealand, leaving a balance of 12 penalties against this time, and one reiterative instability in the control of the ball so far in the contest.
New Zealand defeated for the fourth time Australia in three matches of consecutively. This milestone had already been repeated in 2013, 2016 and 2018. Now, it will be the turn to face Los Pumas, while the Wallabies will host the Springboks, both on September 12, for the third date of the Rugby Championship.
