The All Blacks have beaten Australia 27-7 in front of a packed Eden Park.

The All Blacks played much better than last week when they drew 16-16.

The victory was built on a superb second-half display followng their 10-7 at half-time. The All Blacks scored three quick tries after the restart to run away with the game.

Victory maintains New Zealand’s impressive record at Eden Park, where they have not lost in 44 Tests since 1994 and where Australia have not won since 1986.

The All Blacks now need to win only one of the two remaining games in the Bledisloe series, to retain the trophy they have held since 2003.

Both of these games will be played in Australia as part of the upcoming Tri-Nations tournament.

New Zealand try scorers were Aaron Smith, Beauden Barrett, Ardie Savea and Sam Cane.
