The All Blacks retained the Bledisloe Cup and responded to last week’s comprehensive loss to Australia with a resounding 36-0 success over the Wallabies at Eden Park on Saturday.

First-half tries from out-half Richie Mo’unga and scrum-half Aaron Smith were added to by Sonny Bill Williams, Sevu Reece and George Bridge scores in the second period as the reigning world champions illustrated their ruthlessly efficient nature.

The Wallabies, who were seeking a first Bledisloe Cup success since 2002 after last week’s thrilling 47-26 win, failed to capitalise on promising scoring opportunities in the first half and made far too many basic errors in the rain in Auckland.
