All Blacks Player Ratings v Wallabies - Bledisloe II

The All Blacks locked away the Bledisloe Cup for another year with a 40-12 victory at Eden Park. Here’s how they rated individually.

1. Joe Moody – 7

Had a little trouble at scrum time but bagged a try and made his tackles.

2. Codie Taylor – 7

Great support running, excellent lineout work.

3. Owen Franks – 6.5

Made all 11 of his tackle attempts, all-around tidy appearance in his 100th Test. Penalised twice.

4. Brodie Retallick – 8.5
Huge impact on defense as per usual, picked up a try assist with a perfectly timed short ball to Liam Squire just after halftime. Once again disruptive in the lineout.

5. Sam Whitelock – 7.5
Immense defensively. Didn’t get many opportunities with ball in hand.

6. Liam Squire – 7.5

Helped neutralise David Pocock, solid defensively and picked up a try.

7. Sam Cane – 6.5

Shorter shift than he would have hoped. Beaten across the line by Will Genia in the first half. Made 11 tackles.

8. Kieran Read – 8.5

The captain led from the front with 21 tackles and two turnovers won. Tireless performance.

9. Aaron Smith – 7

Had a hand in four tries, including a great pass to put Beauden Barrett into space for his first. Crucial miss on Bernard Foley near midfield led to Reece Hodge try.

10. Beauden Barrett – 9.5

Picked up four tries, had a fifth rubbed out. Solid performance with the boot as well. Simply cut Wallaby defence to shreds.

11. Waisake Naholo – 8

Not as impactful as last weekend but still a solid shift. Had a try erased after a forward pass. Kept himself busy with plenty of off-the-ball work. Chalked up over 100 run metres.

12. Ngani Laumape – 7.5

Finished strong with a handful of signature carries. Midfield linchpin in defence, making all nine of his tackle attempts.

13. Jack Goodhue – 7

Fell off a few tackles and didn’t make too much impact with ball in hand. Still looks like the future of the All Blacks midfield.

14. Ben Smith – 8.5

Untouchable under the high-ball, proved a constant threat when carrying. Great shift on the wing.

15. Jordie Barrett – 8

A steady performance at the back. Carved off plenty of metres –  a team high 149. Robbed of a try after Bernard Foley got him by the bootlaces. Untested defensively.
