New Zealand beat Australia 33-6 at Eden Park in Wellington to take second place in this year’s Tri Nations Series. Flyhalf Daniel Carter scored 18 points and had a hand in three tries.
Winger Cory Jane scored a first half try off a high kick from Carter and Ma’a Nonu touched down in the second half try from a Carter in-pass.
Winger Joe Rokocoko added his 45th test try on the fulltime whistle form an initial cut-out pass from Carter to seal New Zealand’s third-straight win over Australia this year.
Australia’s only points came from a penalty to Matt Giteau and drop-goal to Berrick Barnes. South Africa already grabbed the 2009 Tri-Nations title in Hamilton last week.
