Nonu scores only try as NZ All Blacks bt Wallabies 19-18 & retain 2009 Bledisloe Cup in Sydney.

Category: wallabies rugby – Author: admin – 3:01 pm

Shows Ma’a Nonu scoring the only try of the game with 15mins to go. Turn the volume up LOUD to hear the crowd comments & general Bledisloe atmosphere. Australia take back the lead again, before Dan Carter kicks a penalty with just 90 seconds left on the clock. The Wallabies make a final push for the line, but cannot prevent NZ All Blacks retaining the Bledisloe Cup. There were 80,228 in the crowd for this game at ANZ Stadium, Olympic Park, Sydney, 22 August 2009. At the end of the vid I’ve added a short clip of the New Zealanders performing their pre-match ‘haka’.

TRI NATIONS 09-Test#5-All Blacks vs Wallabies-pt2

Category: wallabies rugby – Author: admin – 10:45 am

The Alternative Rugby Commentary Highlights (2nd half) - round five of the 2009 Tri Nations takes the Rugby Universe to Sydney where the Bledisloe Battle between the old friendly rivals continues. The return of Carter makes a bit of a difference but the referee still owned the pitch in what was a slightly more entertaining no rucking-breakdown-cheating kick-fest than past weeks games. The Criminals had The Blackness by the balls but they couldn’t cope with the immense pressure from the might of a much improved but still school-boyish attack of Black - and a Nail biting end to round it all off. Tu Meke !

Rugby: Deans under pressure as Wallabies try to break hex

Category: wallabies rugby – Author: admin – 8:44 pm

Graham Henry’s love-hate relationship with the New Zealand’s rugby public will endure until the 2011 World Cup but rival Robbie Deans’ honeymoon period could be on the wane if he cannot mastermind a rare Wallabies win on Eden Park tomorrow.

While the All Blacks are under pressure, having produced three less-than-spectacular performances against France and Italy last month, Henry might take comfort in the fact the time has arrived for Deans to deliver in the Tri-Nations opener.

Twelve months on from the Wallabies’ stunning victory in Sydney — the perfect start to the Deans reign soon after he failed to replace Henry as All Blacks coach - Australia have lost three on the bounce against their neighbours.

And ominously they have not won on Eden Park in 10 attempts since 1986.

Henry’s stocks rose when Richie McCaw’s return enabled the side to exact revenge in Auckland a week after the Sydney debacle.

Ultimately the Bledisloe Cup was locked down before the All Blacks’ dominance was confirmed in the fourth test of the series in Hong Kong last November.

Deans’ first year in charge also included a record 53-8 hiding in in South Africa and only their second loss to Wales since the 1987 World Cup.

So for all the scrutiny Henry is exposed to, former Crusaders coach Deans needs to prove his methods can mould an adaptable and mentally strong unit.

Once again, his team must win three of the four Bledisloe matches this season if the Cup is to reside in Sydney for the first time since 2003.

Fitness, composure and self belief were lacking when the Wallabies flunked the Eden Park test last year but Deans and senior players insist they have learned from that humiliation.

If nothing else, Deans has had longer to make his imprint on the squad. he had a short lead-in last season after coaching the Crusaders to Super 14 glory days before switching allegiance.

“Our understanding and clarity on what we’re trying to achieve has improved,” said Wallabies captain Stirling Mortlock.

Second five-eighth Berrick Barnes felt progress was inevitable now Deans had bedded down his philosophies.

“It was good to come into this year and have the structures down pat,” he said.

“I think that showed in the (season opening) Barbarians game, the way we were able to get things together and get rolling as a team.

“We’re not as fluid as we want to be but we know if we can get our game plan right and get our guys in the right positions we can create a lot of stress on the opposition.”

Deans, meanwhile, has experienced less stress in one regard since returning home - his coaching duel with Henry is not as prominent as last year.

“It was ludicrous, everyone was talking about the coaches,” he said.

“Now its settled into a more normal frequency.”

Henry has certainly cut a more jovial figure this week.

However, unlike the corresponding fixture last year, he is not facing the prospect of three straight losses so soon after his controversial reappointment as head coach.

He also has the security of having McCaw available for the first time this season to engage nemesis George Smith, in what is the Australian flanker’s 100th test.

Rodney So’oialo, Andrew Hore and Sitiveni Sivivatu are also back from injury although, like McCaw, they are underdone and there is a massive leadership void in the backline with Daniel Carter not back until September at the earliest.

Teammates and management have rallied around first five-eighth Stephen Donald before his 12th test, where he must counter Wallabies maestro Matt Giteau.

“We’ve gone through the normal process, he always prepares well,” Henry said of Donald’s mental state.

Although the All Blacks have some breathing space against the Wallabies given Deans needs three victories for a tangible reward, Henry realises the continuation of New Zealand’s 15-year unbeaten record at the venue will relieve some pressure before tests against the Springboks in Bloemfontein and Durban.

The All Blacks head for the Republic on Sunday morning.
