All Blacks Break 113 Year Record During 42-8 Win Over Australia

The All Blacks dominated Australia in Sydney.

New Zealand sent out a strong warning to the rest of the rugby world today after their massive 42-8 win over the Wallabies.

Despite losing Richie McCaw, Dan Carter, Ma’a Nonu and Conrad Smith after the World Cup, there is little evidence to suggest that the All Blacks will be too troubled by their departure.

Indeed, despite some commentator’s arguing that New Zealand could struggle in midfield following the injury sustained by Sonny Bill Williams at the Olympic Games, Ryan Crotty and Malakai Fekitoa dominated their rivals.

Although Australia will no doubt lament the the fact that they committed an enormous amount of individual errors, New Zealand were rewarded for putting in the effort to charge down Bernard Foley, and pressurising Stephen Moore’s throw into the line out.

As a result, the All Blacks ran in six tries during the rout, and recorded their biggest win over the Wallabies on Australian soil in 113 years.

What’s more, the result came after the NZRU revealed that their hotel had been bugged leading up the fixture, leaving Australia having to answer questions for what happened both on and off the field.
