New Zealand crushes Australia to take the Rugby Championship title option

New Zealand easily beat Australia (40-14) this Saturday in Auckland on the last day of the Rugby Championship. The All Blacks thus take an option to the final victory since South Africa will have to win with a difference of 39 points and the extra offensive point against Argentina to steal the trophy.

Great winner of Australia (40-14) this Saturday on account of the last day of the Rugby Championship, New Zealand took a big step towards the trophy. Tied with South Africa before the match, the Kiwis forced the Springboks to win with the offensive extra point and a 39-point difference against Argentina on Saturday afternoon (5:05 p.m.) to prevent them from triumphing.

A class gap between the two teams.

Unlike last week when the Wallabies had retreated at the last second At the end of a high intensity match (37-39), there was no photo during the rematch at Eden Park. If Richie Mo’unga opened the scoring with a penalty until the 21st minute (3-0, 21), the Blacks quickly followed up with a Will Jordan try and another penalty to inflate the score (17-0, 27) . Too undisciplined (two yellow cards in the first half), the Wallabies returned to the locker room for this reason.

The second half started on the same bases. Captain Sam Whitelock, impressive on Saturday, pushed his vis-à-vis to record the bonus try (24-0, 43). Codie Taylor and then his replacement Samisoni Taukei’aho added to the score (37-7, 65). For his part, Folau Fainga’a had saved the honor of the Australians after a shot by Mo’unga was countered and well negotiated by the Wallabies before Jordan Petaia lightened the score for the siren (43-14, 80th).

An easy win and clear points difference put the All Blacks in good position to claim their sixth Rugby Championship in seven years.
