Wallabies showed potential in Dunedin: Hansen

Working off a pack that had the Wallabies back-pedalling at scrum time, the All Blacks were intent on playing a high-paced, high-risk game but faced with a rushed defence it came with a high error count, including 10 turnovers in the first half.

Smith scored a try in his home-town Dunedin in the thrilling win, but has opted to activate the sabbatical clause in his contract and will miss the final eight tests of the year.

He helped pave the way for modern forwards like Kieran Read with his ability to carry the ball in one hand and offload.

"Second half we came back a bit and showed we could play some really good rugby". "We had to dig deep".

"Coleman trained yesterday and pretty much completed the session but then afterwards he was still complaining about his shoulder so we put him through fitness tests this morning", Cheika told reporters on Friday.

"We were just hoping to build some pressure and maybe getting a penalty", Barrett said of the discussions the team had as they waited for Beale's try to be converted by Bernard Foley.

"Australia played well, they were given opportunities and they took them and stayed in the game the whole way through".

The Wallabies' attack was also enormously improved and their performance is likely to have lifted some of the gloom that has hung over Australian rugby after the poor performance of their Super Rugby teams this season and a series of administrative crises.


"You're never ready", Hooper said.

"The Waratahs are in the frame but we can't say anything yet", Simmons said. They played some good rugby tonight and they'll be disappointed.

At one stage the Wallabies were 17-0 ahead, with Israel Folau scoring a 70m intercept try after just 27 seconds.

But after showing great patience, the All Blacks finally struck through Beauden Barrett in the 62nd minute, as he barrelled over Will Genia to snag a 5 point lead with 18 minutes remaining.

But once they settled down and made the passes stick they began to make inroads.

That juggling act stands in stark contrast to the All Blacks' situation as Sam Whitelock and Brodie Retallick prepare to equal the New Zealand record for most starts by a lock pairing in their 45th shared outing in Dunedin.

Australia survived a late scare on the stroke of half time when Ben Smith was ruled by the TMO to have lost the ball attempting to ground it alongside the goalpost pad.

The Wallabies again muscled up and Foley had a chance to add another three points at the 30-minute mark but his strike hit the right upright.
