Did you watch the game?

Australia gave up territory early through dumb mistakes (ie, Julian Huxley's kickoff going out on the full and handling errors) and dumb penalties which lead to New Zealands early points. Thats the fault of the attack and team discipline, not the defense.

To say a team played poorly defensively because they gave up two tries (not four, not five, but two whole tries) is asinine. Your claim is like blaming an NFL defense for allowing scores when the offense turns the ball over in the red zone.
