New Zealand took the four-game Bledisloe Cup series 3-1 with a 19-14 victory over Australia. The All Blacks were trailing 14-9 at half-time. The match was played for the first on Asian soil in a bid to promote rugby on the continent.

 

HONG KONG - New Zealand came from behind to beat Australia 19-14 in their Bledisloe Cup rugby union match in Hong Kong on Saturday.

 

The All Blacks recovered from 14-9 down at halftime to keep the Wallabies scoreless in the second period and take the four-game Bledisloe Cup series 3-1.

 

In a match that failed to live up to expectations, players from both sides had trouble adapting to the slippery surface, and the large crowd became increasingly frustrated with decisions from Irish referee Alan Lewis.

 

Sitiveni Sivivatu and Richie McCaw scored tries for the All Blacks, while winger Drew Mitchell crossed twice for the Wallabies.
