80-68 win over McNeese Stat

    47-29 victory over Australia on Saturday, extending its dominance over its
    trans-Tasman rival and spoiling Wallabies coach Ewen McKenzies first game in
    charge. Despite missing star flyhalf Dan Carter through injury, the All Blacks
    always looked in control against a mistake-prone Australia. Ben Smith scored a
    hat trick of tries, and Aaron Cruden, Richie McCaw and Conrad Smith also crossed
    in a bonus-point win for the world champions at Sydneys Olympic stadium. Will
    Genia and James OConnor scored tries for the hosts. The All Blacks will retain
    the Bledisloe Cup -- a trophy contested annually between the Australasian rivals
    -- for the 11th straight year with a victory next week in Wellington. "I am
    obviously very happy with the performance," All Blacks coach Steve Hansen said.
    "Its not every day that you can come here and get 40 odd points. Its important
    to be a winning team, but youve got to keep humble and your feet on the floor
    because youve got to win again next week. "The Bledisloe Cup, you have to win
    twice, so we havent done anything yet. Weve only done a small part of the job,
    but until we win two, we dont win it." On this performance, McKenzie will need a
    vast improvement from his players if they are to have any chance of competing in
    the four-team Rugby Championship, which also features South Africa and
    Argentina. "Every time you lose a game its disappointing," McKenzie said. "We
    were level pegging there for some time in the game, but you have to respect
    possession. "We didnt control the ball and they were able to play and do some of
    the things theyre good at, and you pay a price for that." Australia captain
    James Horwill said his team paid a heavy price for its mistakes. "Theyre very
    good. They show it by the way they play, the way they capitalize on turnovers,
    and they understand the way they want to play because they have done it for a
    long time together," he said. "They are No. 1 in the world for a reason." As was
    the case in the lost series to the British and Irish Lions in June and July, the
    Wallabies made its cause difficult with numerous individual errors, giving the
    visitors frequent scoring opportunities. Stephen Moores knock-on in the opening
    minutes gave the All Blacks an early opportunity to pressure the Wallabies
    goal-line defence. It was a chance they eagerly grasped, with Aaron Cruden
    getting on the outside of James OConnor and flicking a one-handed pass for Ben
    Smith to cross unchallenged for a converted try after four minutes. The
    Wallabies were given a penalty chance when Kieran Read barged into Rob Simmons
    off a high midfield kick. Center Christian Lealiifano made no mistake to narrow
    the deficit to 7-3. Australia closed to within a point on 12 minutes through
    Lealiifano after referee Craig Joubert penalized New Zealand captain Richie
    McCaw for playing the ball while off his feet at the ruck. Both teams traded
    penalties before a poor attempted clearance by Lealiifano was charged down by
    Cruden, with the flyhalf able to score with ease for a 17-12 lead. The home
    teams task was made harder when Jesse Moggs clearance kick failed to find touch
    in the 33rd minute. After several phases close to the Wallabies line, Aaron
    Smith fired a wide pass that eventually allowed the returning McCaw to dive over
    in the corner to make it 22-12. "For Richie to come back after having the break
    and everyone doubted him. To get through the 70 minutes like he did just shows
    the character of the bloke once again, so hopefully there wont be any more
    doubters," Hansen said. The Wallabies received a lifeline after the All Blacks
    fumbled the ball on its line-out. It was swooped on by Michael Hooper, who
    passed the ball for Will Genia to sprint 60 yards and beat Cruden, Ben Smith and
    Israel Daggs attempted tackles to score under the posts. Lealiifano added the
    extras to narrow the score to 22-19. In keeping with the see-saw nature of the
    first half, the Wallabies were caught offside in the final minute of the half,
    giving Cruden a simple penalty shot for the visitors to lead 25-19 at halftime.
    The Wallabies started the second half brightly and Lealiifano again drew the
    Wallabies within three points with another penalty. In the 51st minute, the
    Wallabies conspired to allow the All Blacks score its fourth try, and a bonus
    point, when Mogg dropped off Conrad Smith, allowing the centre to dash over
    under the posts for a 32-22 lead. The hosts misery was compounded when the All
    Blacks won possession on Australias scrum feed in the 57th minute and quickly
    played the ball wide. Ben Smith found space to dive over in the corner to end
    the match as a contest. Quade Cooper was brought on from the bench in the 61st
    minute, his first international appearance since September 2012. The Queensland
    Reds playmaker was greeted by a chorus of boos from the large All Black
    supporter contingent among the crowd of 68,765 people. Cruden continued to
    impress, slotting a penalty in the 66th to bring up 40 points for the All
    Blacks. "People have questioned Aaron Cruden at times at this level, and I think
    he showed tonight that hes a true international player of world-class ability
    and he led the team very well," Hansen said. Ben Smith scored his deserved hat
    trick in the 71st, latching on to a spilt ball at a ruck to dash to the line.
    Australia scored a late consolation try when OConnor found space out wide in New
    Zealands defensive line. ------ Scores: New Zealand 47 (Ben Smith 3, Aaron
    Cruden, Richie McCaw, Conrad Smith tries; Cruden 3 conversions, 3 penalties,
    Beauden Barrett conversion) def. Australia 29 (Will Genia, James OConnor tries;
    Christian Lealiifano 2 conversion, 5 penalties). Halftime: 25-19.

    should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of
