All Blacks draw with Australia

The All Blacks and Australia have played out a pulsating 16-16 draw in the first Bledisloe Cup game of 2020.

Jordie Barrett hit a 79th-minute penalty to tie the two teams16-16.

The Wallabies were chasing a first victory in New Zealand for 19 years.

The game was the first international Test match since the Covid-19 restrictions. It was also the first game for new All Blacks coach Ian Foster and his Wallabies counterpart Dave Rennie.

New Zealand led 8-3 at half time and extended the lead with a try to Aaron Smith just after the re-start. However, Australia fought back with two tries to tie the game up at 13 all.

James O’Connor then scored a 74th-minute penalty for Australia before Barret levelled the scores. However, that wasn’t the end of the game.

Wallabies kicker Reece Hodge had the opportunity to win the game in the 82nd minute but his 50m penalty struck the post.

The game then continued for a further seven minutes of continuous play as both sides looked for the win before the game was over.

The second of four Bledisloe Cup games is on Sunday, 18 October.
