The All Blacks have retained the Bledisloe cup for 2017, beating Australia in pulsating game 35-29.
A last gasp try through first-five Beauden Barrett with two minutes remaining to defeat Australia..
Tries to Israel Folau, Michael Hooper and Bernard Foley – the first of which after just 26 seconds – handed the Wallabies a shock 17-0 lead after 15 minutes.
Yet the All Blacks slowly clawed their way back against a ferocious Australian defence, pushing in front through Barrett with 20 minutes remaining before a see-sawing final quarter was decided by the No.10 with two minutes left.
Despite the victory and retained Cup, coach Steve Hansen will be more than a touch disappointed with his troops, who put up a careless performance.
The All Blacks turned over the ball 17 times on a dry track in Dunedin – 10 in the first half alone – while the Wallabies defended with desperation and put up the sort of fight most believed was beyond them after last week’s first-Test loss.
The two sides will play out a third dead-rubber Test in Brisbane in October.
