Steve Hansen’s Boys Succumbing the Wallabies in Wallabies vs All Blacks Rugby Bledisloe Cup 2018 Game 1

On August 18th All Blacks clashed with Australia Rugby in a match that saw the home team, Australia, get clobbered by their rival New Zealand Rugby in dramatic version. Kieran Read and Brodie Retallik were making a comeback after missing the France game due to injuries.

At the same time, the Australian team had a few changes as well. However, while the new additions to the All Blacks lineup made it stronger, Wallabies suffered a notable loss to its might as it was denied the stellar services of Taniela following to a hamstring injury.

Till the first half, the Wallabies were in good touch by keeping themselves ahead. But in the second half, All Blacks just came back in the game exquisitely. Michael Hooper said, “We want to play nice, expansive rugby but to win these games you have to keep the pressure on. That second half was disappointing.”

Wallabies vs All Blacks Rugby Bledisloe Cup 2018 Game 1 won by All Blacks by 38-13. The All Blacks were first to score in the hyped match up. Israel Folau, Australia’s fullback, suffered an injury after a bad fall following an airborne duel that had him hobble through the rest of the match.

For the first time since 1991, the Wallabies were about to keep the Kiwis from getting a single first-half score.

Australia Rugby captain said that this devastating result disappoints them. He thinks the team could have done more with the poor start that All Blacks had to improve the scoreline and possibly win the match.

Michael Cheika said that Isreal Folau had gone for a scan following the injury.

Kieran thinks that securing the first score just 90 seconds to the end of the period was the turning point they needed to change the fortunes of the game in their favor. He also commended his boys on what they managed during the game: “I think the resilience within the boys was awesome,” he said.

The Australian team is not to be taken lightly either. In fact, it gave All Blacks quite a tough time in the first time. Before falling apart and letting their New Zealand opponents earn a flurry of scores to finish the game with an embarrassing scoreline. That explains why the performance was disappointing for the team.

All Blacks is a legend in the world of Rugby. Its reputation for clobbering almost all other teams in the world is popular around the world. Therefore, it is hardly surprising that the team managed to win this game, and by such a huge margin.

All Blacks, it seems, has an unbeatable form. It is also important to consider that their next meeting is not that far off. More importantly, this time, Australia will have lost their home ground advantage.

Sure, there were some moments of brilliance during the August 18th game when the Wallabies denied the Kiwis a scoring chance for almost the entire first half.

But in all likelihood, All Blacks’ resilience will see them win the August 25th game. And it perhaps similarly the large margin to keep the trophy at home for the 16th time.
