The usual analysis of the All Blacks game, being the First 3 to the Breakdown, tackle stats, penalties conceded, turnovers, the lineouts, and scrums.

Please note Completed Tackles means that player actually brought the ball carrier to ground (ie. snuffing out the movement), not assists in the tackle situation which are tallied separately. Missed tackles also includes slipped tackles where the ball runner gets away. Most importantly, I do NOT call a slipped tackle a tackle, it gets noted as a missed tackle.

Numbers in brackets are the first half/second half breakdown for each total. An asterisk denotes a player that came on as a substitute.

Team: Muliaina, Howlett, Toeava, Rokocoko, McAlister, Carter, Kelleher, So’oialo, McCaw (c), Collins, Robinson, Jack, Hayman, Oliver, Woodcock. Res – Evans, Mauger, Leonard, Masoe, Thorne, Tialata, Mealamu.

Leonard replaced Kelleher and Mealamu replaced Oliver after 48 minutes, while Evans replaced Toeava after 75 minutes.
