Try blitz secures Australia a win
Putaruru’s mighty Totara Jim Ngati’s overview of Pool C
Australia had a stuttering start against Italy on Sunday but with a blitz of tries by Ben Alexander, Adam Ashley-Cooper, James O’Connor and Digby Ioane the Aussies secured a bonus-point win in Pool C.
The Italian forward pack had some impressive moments, however that could not keep the Wallabies at bay. Australia won the match 32-6.
The other game to watch was Ireland and the United States, Ireland won this game unconvincingly 22-10. It was a concern that the Irish were unable to secure a bonus point win which could prove costly in future matches.
All eyes will be on Saturday’s match as Ireland take on the Tri Nations champions Australia at Eden Park. Tomorrow Russia will take on the United States in New Plymouth.
