Kiwi skipper praises side
New Zealand captain Richie McCaw has hailed his side after their 22-0 win over Australia on Saturday.
The All Blacks went into the game as the favourites after beating Robbie Deans' men 27-19 in Sydney last weekend, but no-one would have predicted the manner in which they destroyed their bitter rivals in Auckland, to seal their tenth successive Bledisloe Cup.
The result marked the first time in 50 years that the Wallabies have failed to score a single point against the Kiwis and has only raised further questions about the future of boss Robbie Deans.
After the game, McCaw hailed his side's efforts and said he was proud of the way they'd performed.
"I'm proud of the way guys went about their work all week and got the job done tonight," he added. "There was a little sense we perhaps blew some opportunities as well and could have been in control of the game a wee bit earlier. But to have that Cup again is very satisfying."
