The All Blacks forwards responded to criticism of their performance in their opening Rugby Championship clash to set the foundation for a 51-20 victory over Australia at Eden Park on Saturday that also ensured the retention of the Bledisloe Cup. All Blacks' captain Richie McCaw, who was sinbinned early in the game for a professional foul, scored two tries while Kieran Read, Julian Savea and Steven Luatua also crossed with their pack awarded a penalty try to complete a record score against the Wallabies. Fly-half Aaron Cruden kicked five conversions and three penalties, while Wallabies fullback Israel Folau and captain Michael Hooper crossed for tries, with Kurtley Beale adding two penalties and two conversions. Both sides now have a week off before their next Rugby Championship clashes, with the All Blacks playing Argentina in Napier, while the Wallabies head to Perth to host South Africa on 6 September.
