The Wallabies are up first. Twenty-something Kylie Price belts out a passionate rendition, filled with emotion and it brings out a few tears. Really well done, I think Simon Cowell would approve. 7.5 /10
Missed the name of the New Zealand anthem singer, but it's not our best work. This is the first time the All Blacks have ever lost an anthem off. It lacked the X-factor, no tingle in the spine. 6.5/10.
But they can make it up at haka time. Here we go.
Tonight it's led by Liam Messam and it's a goodie. Loud, violent and proud. Great stuff, we're all set.
The Wallabies have the kick off and Matt Toomua has the honours. It is knocked forward by Sam Cane and the Wallabies have the early advantage.
Hooper attacks the line wide on the left but he knocks the ball on and the ABs are off the hook.
There was a nice break from Folau in the buildup there. Good start from the Aussies but they should be on the board.
Don't have too many, Vinnie.
Ball not released now from the All Blacks scrum and the Wallabies have a penalty.
Quade Cooper lines up the first kick of the match and there is a loud chorus of boos resonating around the stadium.
But he rises above it. Straight down the middle. The Wallabies lead 3-0.
3 MINS - ALL BLACKS 0 WALLABIES 3
Charlie Piutau makes a good break down the right hand side now for the All Blacks and they are on the front foot.
It swings left toward Aaron Smith and ends up in the hands of Nonu.
But the ball is turned over and Cooper clears the loose ball down field. A very open start.
Craig Joubert of South Africa.
Wallabies attacking again now from 22m out. Folau looks like a real handful to bring down and makes good yards again.
Knock-on Wallabies. Savea was in there and may have helped to force the mistake.
Good start from the Wallabies, but once again a crucial mistake at a crucial time as they were so close to the line.
The first scrum was a mess, lets have a look at the second one.
Free kick to the ABs this time. Read takes a quick tap and now Cruden drops a kick in behind.
Betham deals with it well and the Wallabies are back in possession.
But the Wallabies knock it on and one of their players picked it up in an offside position. It's a penalty to the ABs on halfway. Looks like Cruden will go for goal.
It's a long kick for Cruden. 51.8 metres. Is it too far?
Yes it is. By about 20 metres. Shocker of a kick. He just stood there in disbelief after that.
It started from a lineout, the ball found Israel Dagg who hit the line at speed, found a gap and offloaded to Savea who touched down wide left. Great speed and angled running from Dagg. What a response.
Cruden does a lot better with his second kick, sending it down the middle from a difficult wide angle.
That try was all about the timing of the run and the angle from Dagg.
17 MIN - ALL BLACKS 7 WALLABIES 6
Wallabies make another decent burst down the left hand side through Betham, but once again put the ball down. That's three knock-ons in the opening ten minutes. Could prove costly.
Wallabies bash it up through Moore now, 20 metres out.
The ABs defence is standing strong. Read and Famuina making some big tackles.
