A very gracious Peter Godfrey congratulates NZ on the All Blacks becoming the Rugby World Champions for the third time.Recorded live on 2/11/15.
The Best of the Game:
The Wallabies second half recovery had everyone thinking it was going Australia’s way. From Australia’s 3 points to the All Blacks 21, most people here thought it was all over. But a wise nephew of mine in Sydney texted to say wait it is early days. Next thing, the Wallabies were 17 points to the All Blacks 21, and, suddenly, it was game on. That was a phenomenal statement by Australia.
Dan Carter’s drop goal a short time later arrested the Wallabies’ run, and we saw two world class tries run in by Ma’a Nonu and Beaudon Barratt with conversions by Dan Carter that phase set the final score… 34 – 17.
A fabulous fast running game, the best of Southern Hemisphere Rugby.
In the words of former Wallabies captain George Gregan… “Four more years boys, four more years!” 😉
