So the Bledisloe Cup finally has a try after 110 minutes.
Jane kicks long and gets hit late. Play on. Folau counters and makes a huge run. He gets inside the All Blacks 22.
The Wallabies hot on attack. They go wide right then turn the ball over. Cruden quickly counters. Holds the ball until halfway before sending Savea away.
110 minutes of no tries. Two in two minutes.
Cruden convers. All Blacks lead 23-6
Looks like Jane got away with a highshot there on Folau. Should have been a Wallabies penalty. Instead, All Blacks try down the other end of the field.
Cruden having a great game so far. So All Blacks down to 14 men - scored six points. Wallabies down to 14 men - Gave up 14 points.
Simmons is back for the Wallabies.
Scrum goes down. Restart.
24 tries in 24 tests for Savea.
So can the Wallabies bounce back before the break?
Fardy with a run up midfield but Adam Ashley-Cooper drops the ball.
Another break down the left for the All Blacks but Messam knocks on for a second time as he can't regather a Crotty pass. Wallabies clear and Savea makes the catch.
All Blacks on attack again and Messam knocks on for a third time. One minute to go.
All Blacks lead 23-6 just before halftime. Looking to keep Wallabies tryless for another half of rugby.
Here come the Wallabies. They get into the All Blacks half as the hooter goes.
Hooper with a strong run but McCaw earns a penalty. The All Blacks tap and go...
But they knock-on. Halftime.
So a much better half of rugby compared to last week. Two tries for the All Blacks, the first from a penalty try after they dominated a 5m scrum. The second from 85m outs when they turned over the ball and Cruden set up Savea for the 50m run to the line.
A yellow card each, one for McCaw and one for Simmons but the All Blacks seemed to lift with a man down while the Wallabies were punished, especially at scrum time without Simmons.
40 minutes to go. Can the Wallabies get back into it or is the Bledisloe staying in New Zealand?
