Match Nine

New Zealand 33- 6 Australia

New Zealand totally over powered the Wallabies in this final match of the 2009 Tri Nations Series. Australia failed to continue with their excellent form shown against Tri Nations champions South Africa in their last match instead they wilted under the intense pressure heaped upon them by a dominant All Black team.

New Zealand scored three tries, two in the last 7 or 8 minutes, but by that time they had already won the match and were never in any real danger. The result means that its Australia who will get the wooden spoon and for New Zealand confidence should return after losing three times to South Africa in the Series.

New Zealand Scorers: Tries: Jane, Nonu, Rokococo. Cons: Carter (3) Pens: Carter (4).

Australia Scorers Pens: Gitaeu. DG: Barnes
