The All Blacks have pulled out of the final Bledisloe Cup match against Australia.

The game was due to be played in Perth on this coming Saturday night.

NZ Rugby (NZR) has decided not to send the team due to concerns about Australia’s restrictions on New Zealand travelers.

The NZR also announced the All Blacks’ two home rugby championship against South Africa and the Black Ferns’ two O’Reilly Cup Tests against the Wallaroos will not be played in New Zealand.

The match in Dunedin would have been the 100th test between the All Blacks and the Springboks.

However, the NZR also said that they are committed to playing in the entire Rugby Championship in 2021 and their Northern tour which starts on November 23rd.
