Watch: All The Highlights From Australia’s First Win Over The All Blacks In Two Years

Australia’s first win over the All Blacks since August of 2015 turned out to be an absolute stonker. 

With the Wallabies having lost their first two Bledisloe Cup games to New Zealand one would have been forgiven for thinking this game would turn out to be nothing more than a procession for the Kiwis but Australia had other ideas and have now ended what was a seven-match losing streak.

An early Reece Hodge try set the tone for the match to come and even though the All Blacks inevitably retaliated via a Waisake Naholo try and kicks from Lima Sopoaga to take a lead into the half-time break Australia were not to be outdone.

A further two tries from Israel Folau and Marika Koroibete in the second half sealed the win for the Wallabies in what was a thrilling encounter.

Highlights from the game can be seen below.
