All Blacks down Wallabies in Championship

All Blacks down Wallabies in Championship

New Zealand's Rugby Championship campaign suffered another setback just hours before their opening match against Australia after veteran flanker Jerome Kaino flew home from Syndey following revelations about his personal life.

The All Blacks were at their brilliant best - against an utterly abject Wallabies outfit - as they ran in six first-half tries and two more early in the second period to open up a scarcely believable 54-6 lead in Sydney. Starting with a quick lineout, Damian McKenzie linked with Ryan Crotty in midfield and the Wallabies looked to have it covered but Squire was found unmarked by Reiko Ioane after some quick hands from Brodie Retallick and Kieran Read and Squire set sail for the line untouched.

Consolation replies to Curtis Rona on debut, Tevita Kuridrani, Kurtley Beale and Israel Folau flattered the Wallabies, who were outclassed in every facet of play.

However, things were very different in the final half-hour, Australia restoring a measure of pride with four tries of their own as New Zealand's level dipped.

The New Zealand Herald reported on Saturday there were with fresh revelations suggesting the All Blacks management knew Smith's behaviour was not a one-off.

"We showed in the first half that we really just let the ball do the work".

"It is not the start we would have hoped for", said Australia captain Michael Hooper. We were OK in patches of the second half but we conceded 34 points which means most days of the week you're going to be losing test matches.

But the defense was nowhere to be seen as New Zealand sliced through Australia easily in the first half.

Kaino has been dumped from the squad to face Australia in the Bledisloe Cup after it was revealed he was allegedly having an affair with a model.

Bernard Foley kicked the Wallabies to trail by a point with a 17th-minute penalty after the All Blacks scrum was penalised. But you can't fault that first half. Beauden Barrett's conversion made it 7-3.

Winger Ioane scored the first two, beating a badly positioned Folau on the outside and benefiting from a Beale spill to race away for the second.

A loose pass and a handling error by the Wallabies soon in the middle of the field gifted Ioane his second in the space of three minutes as the score jumped out to 19-6.
