At this moment, the Wallabies had a glimmer of hope to get off to a winning start in the Bledisloe Cup. Thanks to a great run from Hunter Paisami, Kellaway put Australia behind by a point. It was a great moment for the New South Welshman.
Dave Rennie has a selection headache next week. He knows Jordan Petaia is a potential option at fullback and when Tom Banks spilled that high ball that hit him square in the face, Petaia’s name might have been on the No.15 jersey. But a couple of late tries and a better second half showing might keep Banks in the reckoning to stay at the back.
Too little, too late for the Wallabies. 🇦🇺🇳🇿

Where was this Wallabies team in the first 60 minutes?
They scored three tries in the final 12 minutes of the match to bring the final score all the way back to 33-25.
Jordan Uelese scored the final try of the night off the back of a rolling maul.
The All Blacks will be filthy with how they finished that match. They switched off. It was very uncharacteristic.
But they finished with the result they were after. The hoodoo continues.
