Bledisloe Cup stays with All Blacks

THE WALLABIES have failed to end their hoodoo at Eden Park, with the All Blacks keeping a hold of the Bledisloe Cup.

New Zealand ran riot over Australia in front of a thundering Auckland crowd, powering to 41-13 victory last night.

Wallabies coach Michael Cheika copped criticism for selecting the out-of-form Quade Cooper and the five-eighth did little to ease the tension when sent to the sin bin in the second half.


New Zealand scored two tries while he was cooling his heels on the sideline, in the shadow of the Cup which will remain over the ditch for another year.

For the Kiwis it was an emotional win, as they prepare to farewell six veterans, including captain Richie McCaw who was playing his 142nd Test, becoming the most capped international rugby player in history.
