Aussies beat the All Blacks

Australia came back to beat New Zealand 20-15 today.

The Wallabies scored 14 unanswered points in the second half to beat the kiwis for the first time since 2004 after first-half tries from prop Tony Woodcock and winger Rico Gear had given the Kiwis a 15-6 lead at the break.

Backs Adam Ashley-Cooper and Scott Staniforth scored second-half touchdowns for the Australians as the All Blacks struggled following a sin-bin absence for prop Carl Hayman.

Stirling Mortlock struck two penalties and Matt Giteau two conversions for the Wallabies while Dan Carter hit a conversion and penalty for the All Blacks.

The Aussies are back ,they always seem to get the timing right for the big tournamnets.
