Israel Dagg scored two tries as the All Blacks beat Australia 29-9 in their Rugby Championship clash yesterday, which also ensured they retained the Bledisloe Cup for another year.
Beauden Barrett also showcased his growing stature as the starting fly-half with nine points from the boot and his all-round play drove his side around the field in a match that failed to reach the same heights as the previous week’s opener.
Wallabies fly-half Bernard Foley slotted two penalties, while Reece Hodge landed a monster penalty in the first half for the visitors, who rarely threatened on attack and lost their sixth successive match.
