Tri-Nations: New Zealand (39) v Australia (10) (2nd Test) (F/T)


Written by Andre Bosch (KSA Shark ©)

Posted in :All Blacks, Tri Nations, Wallabies on 2 Aug 2008 at 07:30

The Australians travel down to Eden Park in Auckland to have a go at a repeat performance against the All blacks.

The Aussies have not beaten the All Blacks in New Zealand since 2001 at Dunedin.

Will the Australians be able to use the momentum of their five match unbeaten run to down the Kiwis in Auckland?

You have to go back as far as August 2004 to find the last time New Zealand lost two in a row, coincidentally also against Aus and SA, but you have to go back much further to find three consecutive losses. As far back as 1998, when the All Blacks lost all five their Tri-Nations matches.

Kick-off at Eden Park in Auckland at 19:35 (09:35 SA Time) (07.35 GMT)

Auckland Weather Conditions for the Next 5 hours:
6pm – 15° C – Cloudy
7pm – 14° C – Mostly Cloudy
8pm – 14° C – Rain
9pm – 13° C – Rain
10pm – 13° C – Rain

Referee: Mark Lawrence (South Africa)
Touch judges: Craig Joubert (South Africa), James Bolabiu (Fiji)
TMO: Shaun Veldsman (South Africa)

    No he can be on the field but then Jean must be the Captain.

    If Matfield is the captain then bakkies must moer him on the jaw EARLY on so that he can have a well deserved (notice I didn’t say earned) rest.
