  • Full-time: A record-breaking 51-20 win for the All Blacks as they retain the Bledisloe Cup. It was a superb performance as Australia have been rocked. Thanks for joining us. We have Argentina against South Africa later on so we hope to see you then!

    80
  • CONVERSION, NEW ZEALAND, A SMITH. 51-20. 50 is up.

    80
  • TRY, NEW ZEALAND, LUATUA. 49-20. Short ball from Charlie Faumuina sends Luatua under the uprights.

    79
  • YELLOW CARD, NEW ZEALAND, B FRANKS. The replacement prop goes to the bin for slapping the ball away at ruck time. Australia in possession 40 metres out.

    77
  • Almost a second try for Folau as he intercepts from his own 22 and sets off down the left wing. Will he get there? No, a fine tackle from Barrett saves the day. He's super sub yet again as Folau is in touch.

    76
  • Here is a big cheer for Retallick as he comes off, replaced by Sam Cane as Steven Luatua moves to the lock position. What a game he has had. Outstanding.

    73
  • The All Blacks are clearly rattled and hurting after this mini comeback as Australia come again. Further tries in the last ten minutes? There could well be.

    70
  • CONVERSION, AUSTRALIA, BEALE. 44-20. An extra two.

    67
  • TRY, AUSTRALIA, HOOPER. 44-18. What pace from the skipper as he peels off toward the posts superbly, beating Aaron Smith for pace. Great stuff from him.

    66
  • The majority of both teams' benches are now on as the coaches use their respective subs. Australia look galvanised at the moment just ten metres out.

    65
  • CONVERSION, AUSTRALIA, BEALE. 44-13. Simple enough.

    64
  • TRY, AUSTRALIA, FOLAU. 44-11. They are over at last. An inside ball finds Folau who is strong to finish.

    63
  • CONVERSION, NEW ZEALAND, CRUDEN. 44-6. Well struck.

    61
  • TRY, NEW ZEALAND, MCCAW. 42-6. They hit the 40-point mark and it's another for the captain from a driving maul. 50 points now looks very much on at Eden Park.

    60
  • Toomua goes off for Bernard Foley by the way as New Zealand continue to smell blood, running everything they can at Australia. What a performance this is.

    58
  • CONVERSION, NEW ZEALAND, CRUDEN. 37-6. A huge lead.

    56
  • TRY, NEW ZEALAND, MCCAW. 35-6. This is relentless. A driving maul from the All Blacks and it is McCaw at the back of it. Australia don't know where they are.

    55
  • Australia act after that as Nick Phipps is on for White. They have more defending to do though as it is an attacking line-out just five metres from the Wallaby try-line. Can they further extend the lead?

    54
  • CONVERSION, NEW ZEALAND, CRUDEN. 30-6. Easy points.

    52
  • TRY, NEW ZEALAND, READ. 28-6. Chance taken. Fekitoa, C Smith and Savea combine before Whitelock feeds his number eight for the simple dive over. Great score.
