All Blacks Mana Partially Restored, 39-10 against Wallabies

The All Blacks came back with a full head of steam at Eden Park, Auckland, yesterday to convincingly trounce the Wallabies 39-10. Turning the tables on the Australians from the week before in Sydney, a re-found aggression spearheaded by AB captain Richie McCaw seemed to make all the difference along with a change in tactics. Two tries apiece by Woodcock & Nonu with Carter chiming in with 5 penalties and 2 conversions accounted for the All Black total. The All Blacks even managed a bonus point to keep them in contention for the trans-Tasman Bledisoe Cup and not yet out of the race for the Tri-Nations.

Is AB coach Graham Henry safe till the end of the year?
