All Blacks thrash Australia to close on championship title eNCA DStv403

New Zealand put one hand on the Rugby Championship trophy after romping to a 40-14 win over Australia with a bonus-point victory in Auckland on Saturday.

Tries by Will Jordan, Codie Taylor, Sam Whitelock and Samisoni Taukei'aho plus a first-half penalty try at Eden Park kept New Zealand top of the table in the final round of matches.It seems like only yesterday that Stormers captain Steven Kitshoff held the United Rugby Championship (URC) trophy aloft in front of a crowd full of roaring fans at the Cape Town Stadium.Posted in.22 September 2022 - 16:20 NICK MULVENNEY The Wallabies in action against the Springboks at Adelaide Oval on August 27 2022 in Adelaide, Australia.

The All Blacks will retain the Rugby Championship title unless South Africa claim a bonus-point win by a huge margin over Argentina later in Durban.The hosts earned their third straight win in emphatic style, having been 17-0 ahead at half-time after some ill-discipline from the visitors.This Stormers side is a lot different, playing at a temporary home ground of Danie Craven in Stellenbosch as well as a host of changes to the lineup that beat the Bulls three months ago."I'm delighted with the performance, there is always room for improvement, but I loved the attitude," said All Blacks coach Ian Foster."We finished this championship really strong, so in that sense I am pleased with that.Last season’s star players Kitsoff, Damian Willemse, Deon Fourie, Frans Malherbe and Herschel Jantjies are all in Bok camp while fullback Warrick Gelant has signed a deal with French outfit Racing 92."We have given ourselves a chance at the title.The All Blacks have won four and lost four matches so far in 2022 and, title or no title, coach Ian Foster will be desperate for a performance that shows his team is on the right track for next year’s World Cup.

" The Wallabies saw their horror record at Eden Park extended to 23 straight defeats against New Zealand dating back to 1986.While Junior Springbok Suleiman Hartzenberg, still only 19 years old, will also make his debut for the Stormers at outside centre.Australia only had the consolation of converted tries by Folau Fainga'a and Jordan Petaia in front of a sell-out crowd of 47,000."Keeping them scoreless for the first 60 minutes was massive," said New Zealand captain Whitelock.“We have got an exciting blend of youth and experience, along with more than a few players who really stepped up for us consistently last season."The guys defended hard on our line -- the effort, the commitment was there." - 'Disappointing outcome' - The Wallabies paid dearly for their ill-discipline in the first half.“The players can’t wait to get going again and we know how important it will be to make a strong start this week, especially as we are playing in a rugby-mad place like Stellenbosch on what should be a great day for it,” said Dobson.Though two losses to Ireland and another to the Pumas and Springboks this year have destroyed the aura of invincibility the All Blacks once enjoyed on home soil, their last defeat at Eden Park came in 1994 and it is 34 years since Australia won there.

Forwards Jed Holloway and David Porecki were both sent to the sin bin as New Zealand built up a strong lead at the break."Playing with 13 men, through two yellow cards, in the first half really put us on the back foot," said Australia captain James Slipper.(Photo by Anton Geyser/Gallo Images) Shark bite In the first match of the weekend, the Sharks take on Zebre in Parma, Italy."That's a very disappointing outcome for us."We had a lot of confidence coming here, but the All Blacks were too good, clearly.While Zebre have some game time under their belt after their narrow 33-29 loss to Leinster last weekend." Australia had Holloway yellow-carded after just two minutes for a tip tackle on All Blacks flanker Dalton Papali'i.Reuters Would you like to comment on this article?

Yet the All Blacks failed to capitalise on the numerical advantage and only broke the deadlock when Richie Mo'unga converted a penalty after 22 minutes.“That was very bad luck, but we are very fortunate to have Boeta Chamberlain in good form.Jordan then grabbed his 21st try in as many Tests with a moment of magic.The fleet-footed winger hit the line at pace and rode the despairing tackle of Petaia by hitting the gas to cross.He took his opportunity very well,” Sharks head coach Sean Everitt said.Mo'unga added the conversion and persistent All Blacks pressure caused the Australian defence to buckle again soon after.Wallabies hooker Porecki was shown a yellow card for dragging down a maul on their line and Irish referee Andrew Brace awarded a penalty try to make it 17-0 at half-time.The sizable Springbok centre starts in the No 12 jumper alongside Australian Ben Tapuai in midfield.

New Zealand skipper Whitelock was awarded a close-range converted try, even though replays suggested he was prevented from grounding the ball.Mo'unga converted a penalty to put New Zealand 27-0 up before Taylor was shunted over for the fourth try, which sealed the bonus-point win.The side from Pretoria will take on Scottish outfit Edinburgh at fortress Loftus tomorrow afternoon.Australia conjured a try from nothing for Fainga'a before the All Blacks threw bodies into a driving maul and Taukei'aho touched down off the back to put the hosts 37-7 up.Mo'unga, who was near-flawless with the boot all night, added a late penalty before Petaia crossed for Australia's second try just before the whistle.We had a few areas we identified that we needed to work on this week and the boys were hard at work getting those better,” said Bulls director of rugby, Jake White.ryj/pst.
