Rugby: Tri Nations, Bledisloe out of the way - now for the big one
Sun, 22 Jul 2007 07:37a.m.
The All Blacks have polished off their Tri Nations and Bledisloe Cup campaigns with a hard fought 26 - 12 win over Australia at a soggy Eden Park last night.
It was far from the perfect spectacle anticipated during the week - with torrential rain prior to the match making it a difficult night for running rugby.
Prop Tony Woodcock's try in the second half, created by replacement halfback Brendon Leonard, was enough to retain the silverware, and keep coach Graham Henry a happy man.
The All Blacks selectors reveal their 30 man squad for the World Cup at 1:00pm this afternoon.
