Carter won them the game. That drop goal changed things.
Conversations, drop goal, offence, defence = #10
Whitelock won the game when he turned over the SA lineout with around 5 to go
Had they won that it would have set them up for a drop goal
N.z too good. We were never going to beat them
Australia's defence was great. When the score was close in the second half, I thought for a moment that they could've pushed on. You've had some tough luck on referee calls. The forward pass leading to a 3 pointer? NZ's yellow card which should(?) have been a red one. I think Owens had mercy on Ben Smith because he let Kepu off easy after that high on Carter in the first half.
Ben Smith should not have been red carded come one Wesley this is a mans game, he dropped him slowly on his shoulder, the guy was fine. That shot around the neck of Carter was worse IMO
