All Blacks beat Wallabies

11:18 pm on 19 September 2009

Cory Jane scored his first test try as the All Blacks beat Australia 33-6 in their Tri-Nations rugby match in Wellington.

Ma'a Nonu and Joe Rokocoko added late tries while Daniel Carter scored 18 points for the All Blacks with four penalties and the conversion of all three tries.

Flyhalf Matt Giteau slotted an early penalty and inside centre Berrick Barnes kicked a first-half drop goal in a losing Wallabies effort.

It was a sixth successive loss for Australia against New Zealand and left Robbie Deans' side with the wooden spoon after South Africa clinched the Tri-Nations title last week.

The All Blacks took control in the second half with their forwards gaining superiority at the scrum and turning ball over at breakdowns.

The two sides next clash in a Bledisloe Cup encounter in Tokyo on October 31st.
