New Zealand did bomb a try down the right fringes 30m out with a wayward pass, but I'm completely flabbergasted that anyone would say the Australians defensive structure wasn't good in that half.
ADD: The lack of execution from New Zealand was a by-product of pressure from the Australian defensive line.
I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree. I'm flabbergasted you would call a defence that let in two, but could have been 3 tries in one half "excellent".
On another note, does anyone else remeber this match from the '95 world cup
