Hello and welcome to our coverage of the final Bledisloe Test match with the All Blacks taking on the Wallabies at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane. Despite the huge amount of controversy surrounding the Wallabies for the past week, the side has the chance to come together and celebrate Adam Ashley-Cooper's 100th Test by defeating the All Blacks who are coming off the back of a shock loss to the Springboks in South Africa two weeks ago.

1

We're underway in Bledisloe III with Bernard Foley kicking off. The All Blacks have kicked it out and the Wallabies have won their throw in and start to make some metres. But the All Blacks win a penalty for holding on.

2

The All Blacks have kicked ahead and the chase was on but the All Blacks have given away a penalty at the ruck. Foley makes sure to put it out downfield. Wallabies secure the ball but a loose pass from Folau has gone over the sideline and the All Blacks have their first throw in.

3

The All Blacks keep the ball in hand and are hitting the defence hard but not finding any gaps. Scott Higginbotham wins the ball in the ruck but it's a poor pass and goes out for an All Blacks throw in.

4

Boom. Big hit from the Wallabies and they win the loose ball and send it wide to the centurion AAC.

7

The All Blacks win the lineout within the Wallabies 22m and Higginbotham spots the ball at the back of a ruck and kicks it downfield but the All Blacks recover and quickly make metres to get into the Wallabies 22m, but a huge hit by Kuridrani stops the All Blacks quick run.

9

The All Blacks win their lineout and hit the defence hard but the Wallabies hold strong and Scott Fardy wins the ball and wins a penalty to relieve the Wallabies.

The Wallabies win their lineout inside the All Blacks half, but give the ball away for not entering through the gate at the ruck and the All Blacks get to kick downfield.

He gets it! What a kick from White. All Blacks restart quickly and the Wallabies win the ball.

77

The Wallabies weren't doing anything with the ball and eventually they lose the ball and the All Blacks go for touch. But it doesn't go out and the Wallabies move it forward.

78

The All Blacks steal it, but White steals it back! It's frantic down there! Nic White kicks it out but doesn't gain many metres. The All Blacks still have time!

79

The All Blacks are metres out!

80 28 - 27

The All Blacks are in! Try to Malakai Fekitoa! The Wallabies just short in numbers Fekitoa finds the gap and goes over. Slade converts! And that's the game! The All Blacks steal it at the death.
