Round three of Bledisloe cup concluded earlier today with the heavily injured Australia side pulling off a draw against the out of sorts All Blacks. All though the kiwis came in as favorites they were unable to put up the same performances as they did all year long.
Exactly one year ago Fiji kicked off the IRB HSBC sevens series in the exact manner toppling the eventual champions and favorites New Zealand in the cup final of the Gold Coast Sevens.
With the conclusion of the fourth week of the Inaugural Rugby Championship the All Blacks have picked up their 7th consecutive win for the season against the Springboks and their 14th win since losing to Australia in the final game of last year’s Tri Nation’s tournament.
Round 3 of the Inaugural Investec Rugby Championship came to a close last Saturday with two well contested encounters between the All Blacks and the Pumas in Wellington whilst the Springboks made their way to Perth to play the Wallabies for the Nelson Mandela Challenge Plate.
In the last week of the Championship the Wallabies travelled to Rosario to play the Pumas who were fighting to get their first win in the big leagues, meanwhile the already crowned champions New Zealand faced South Africa who were battling for pride at Johannesburg.
