Dan Carter ensured New Zealand converted their territorial domination into points as the All Blacks beat Australia 22-0 in their Rugby Championship clash at Eden Park on Saturday.

Flyhalf Carter kicked five penalties and converted Israel Dagg's try to score 17 points for the All Blacks.

Victory ensured they retained the Bledisloe Cup for the 10th successive season and piled the pressure on Wallabies coach Robbie Deans.
 

New Zealand, who have now held the Bledisloe Cup since 2003, have not lost to Australia at Eden Park since 1986.

They have also won 14 of their 17 tests against their closest neighbours since Deans took over as coach in 2008.

The All Blacks face Australia in the third match of the series, which is not part of the Rugby Championship, in Brisbane on 20 October.
