China Daily (Hong Kong) - - SUNDAY SPORTS -

New Zealand winger Ben Smith fol­lowed up last week’s hat-trick of tries in Syd­ney with two more as the All Blacks beat Aus­tralia 27-16 in their Rugby Cham­pi­onship clash on Satur­day to re­tain the Bledis­loe Cup. Debu­tant fly­half Tom Tay­lor was far from over-awed with 14 points from the boot and a com­posed per­for­mance in gen­eral, while Is­rael Dagg added a penalty when Tay­lor was re­ceiv­ing med­i­cal treat­ment late in the game.
