- Wallabies 47-26 All Blacks
- Australia’s highest ever score against NZ
Just six weeks out from the opening game of their Rugby World Cup campaign, the Wallabies restored pride to the gold jersey as they romped to a famous 47-26 victory against New Zealand in Perth and inflicted the highest points tally the All Blacks have conceded in a test match.
The visitors played the second half with 14 men after Scott Barrett was dismissed for a shoulder charge to the head of Michael Cooper, with the Wallabies making the extra player count after the interval.
