Try blitz se­cures Aus­tralia a win

Pu­taruru’s mighty To­tara Jim Ngati’s over­view of Pool C

South Waikato News - - NEWS -

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.
