All Blacks bounce back against Wallabies

From Morning Report, 7:39 am on 19 October 2020

After being outmuscled, bullied and pushed around by the Wallabies in last week's draw in Wellington, the All Blacks were under pressure to respond in yesterday evening's second Bledisloe Cup test in Auckland.

Respond they did, dominating the physical battle and set piece to score four tries to one, and extend the Wallabies 34 year losing streak at Eden Park.

The game was a return to normality after last week's shock stalemate, and it also marked the emergence of New Zealand rugby's newest star in wing Caleb Clarke.

RNZ's rugby reporter Joe Porter was at the match.
