Match Commentary

81'36-22 End of second half
80'The All Blacks have extended their winning run against Wales, producing a strong second-half performance, but again the scoreline perhaps doesn't tell the tale of the match. Stick with us for live coverage of the Australia-Wales Test in Melbourne.
80'Ryan Crotty crosses in the corner but only after his trailing foot touches the paint under pressure from Hallam Amos.
79'New Zealand determined to have the last word, compiling phases deep in Wales territory and playing past the siren.
78'Wales go wide first phase from the kick off before losing the ball in contact on the left week.
78'Player substituted - Jamie Roberts , Wales
78'Substitute on - Scott Williams , Wales
77'Wales fighting hard after Jamie Roberts charges down and collects a poor kick from Seta Tamanivalu, and gallops clear. he's hauled back by Israel Dagg but stayes on his feet to feed Rhys Priestland and then Jonathan Davies.
77'36-22 Try - Jonathan Davies , Wales
76'Player substituted - Rhys Webb , Wales
76'Substitute on - Gareth Davies , Wales
76'Substitute on - Ellis Jenkins , Wales
76'Player substituted - Sam Warburton , Wales
76'Substitute on - Nathan Harris , New Zealand
76'Player substituted - Dane Coles , New Zealand
76'Substitute on - Rhys Priestland , Wales
76'Player substituted - Dan Biggar , Wales
75'36-17 Conversion - Dan Biggar , Wales
74'Seventeen. phases and finally a Welshman finds space. Liam Williams smashes through a gap outside Jerome Kaino and inside Dane Coles to field a short ball from Dan Biggar and outsprint Israel Dagg for a fine try.
74'36-15 Try - Liam Williams , Wales
72'Up to 13 phases and now losing ground in face of heavy All Blacks defence.
70'Wales are all heart in attacking the NZ defence, but they've gone maybe just 5m in 10 phases.
69'Six phases and great work from Seta Tamanivalu undone by TJ Peranara, who obstructs the defenders with another try looming. New Zealand bench again having a dominant effect, especially when we consider Beauden Barrett is playing a pivotal role in the match.
68'New Zealand effect a turnover after eight phases of Wales possession and Ben Smith rips to the Wales 10m line.
68'Player substituted - Brodie Retallick , New Zealand
68'Substitute on - Patrick Tuipulotu , New Zealand
67'36-10 Conversion - Beauden Barrett , New Zealand
66'Poor kick from Ryan Crotty somehow finds Waisake Naholo, who links with Jerome kaino before feeding Dane Coles and TJ Perenara to put Hurricanes teammate Ardie Savea in space on halfway to gallop clear.
66'34-10 Try - Ardie Savea , New Zealand
65'Awful lineout from Wales, the ball going over the top, and NZ collect and rumble forwards.
65'Substitute on - TJ Perenara , New Zealand
65'Player substituted - Aaron Smith , New Zealand
64'Wales roll a maul and win a penalty after NZ adjudged to have collapsed it. Dan Biggar puts the ball out for a 5m lineout.

62'Substitute on - Bradley Davies , Wales
62'Player substituted - Ken Owens , Wales
62'Substitute on - Scott Baldwin , Wales
62'Player substituted - Samson Lee , Wales
62'Substitute on - Tomas Francis , Wales
60'All Blacks have scored 19 points without reply in 20 minutes. You think tou're in a contest against them and bang ... worth remembering that Wales were on top in the opening spell of this second half.
60'29-10 Try - Waisake Naholo , New Zealand
59'New Zealand dominate the scrum before Kieran Read and Aaron Smith combine to put Waisake Naholo across untouched in the left corner. This is looking likely to blow open now. Wales have really got to show some starch and steel in the final quarter -- where they fell off the past seven days ago.
59'Player substituted - Gethin Jenkins , Wales
59'Substitute on - Rob Evans , Wales
58'Wonderful skills from New Zealand in first-phase attack. Chip pass from Beauden Barrett to Ben Smith who volleys the ball back inside where Ardie Savea couldn't quite collect the ball. Just like watching the Euros :-)
58'Substitute on - Ardie Savea , New Zealand
58'Player substituted - Sam Cane , New Zealand
56'Wales just perhaps beginning to fragment. They were forced backwards in the maul after winning the lineout then a couple of poor passes and Jamie Roberts knocks-on on the 10m line.
56'Beaden Barrett steps through the line two passes after the scrum. Two quicks tries and Wales have to beware.
56'24-10 Conversion - Beauden Barrett , New Zealand
55'22-10 Try - Beauden Barrett , New Zealand
54'Player substituted - Joe Moody , New Zealand
54'Substitute on - Wyatt Crockett , New Zealand
53'Great play from Aaron Smith, sniping from behind a ruck from the kick-off then roosting the ball deep into Wales territory. Great kick chase and they win a turnover from Dan Biggar inside the Red 22.
53'17-10 Conversion - Beauden Barrett , New Zealand
52'15-10 Try - Ben Smith , New Zealand
51'The All Blacks had been working themselves back into the game, and great work from Beauden Barrett in first-phase attack from a Wales lineout, slipping through the Wales defence, puts Ben Smith into space to gallop over the line.
50'Breathless rugby. Sam Warburton effects a turnover and gallops into NZL territory before Izzy Dagg returns after Toby Faletau had dropped a pass from his skipper, and Coles runs the ball back into Red territory.
48'Dane Coles and Beauden Barrett key in eight phases of danger before a turnover releases the pressure.
47'Big aerial contact on the left wing between Waisake Naholo and Liam Williams. Both wingers looking dusty and good news is they're both up. Penalty Wales -- overturning a penalty awarded to NZL -- with Jaco Peyper judging Naholo was not in a realistic position to contest the ball.
47'Player substituted - Owen Franks , New Zealand
47'Substitute on - Charlie Faumuina , New Zealand
46'Kieran Read - again crashes over the gain line; he's having a whale of a game.
45'Wales dominating possession and phases without threatening the line and basic errors of execution undoing them.
43'Loose ball in the backline from Wales and they undo a lot of good work to be back inside their own territory. Just the one team playing in the second half to this point.
42'Reports from the ground the Aaron Cruden is on his way to hospital for "precautionary scans".
41'Wales challenging the All Blacks through multiple phases left and right until Seta Tamanivalu smashes Liam Willams. All Blacks defensive line not as quick as first half. Sliding. and hence more space for Wales to put pill through hands.
41'10-10 End of first half
41'10-10 Conversion - Dan Biggar , Wales
40'Dan Biuggar gets us underway to Israel Dagg just outside the 22. All to play for.
40'Great kick from Dan Biggar, and we're all square going to the sheds. Fair reflection on the play.
40'Big bust from Jonathan Davies first phase through the centre of the All Blacks defence, and just as we were lamenting a lack of thrust they get the ball to Alun Wyn Jones to score unmarked on the left wing.
40'Player substituted - Malakai Fekitoa , New Zealand
40'Substitute on - Seta Tamanivalu , New Zealand
40'10-10 Start of second half
40'10-8 Try - Alun Wyn Jones , Wales
37'Wales dominating possession, and they look dangerous attacking on their right wing without threatening overly to break the line.
35'Wales rumble from the lineout, but the All Blacks force them into touch for a home lineout. Shades of an infamous decision in a Rugby World Cup match featuring Wales.
35'Fekitoa pinged for obstruction, but Dan Biggar goes for the lineout rather than a seeming certain three points.
34'New Zealand make a mess of the Wales scrum, but still the tourists get the ball through hands to Hallam Amos on the left wing before Malakai Fekitoa clears the danger.
33'Wales firmly in NZ territory after winning a scrum penalty. Kieran Read commits a lineout offence, with Wales awarded a scrum as the attacking team.
33'Player substituted - Aaron Cruden , New Zealand
33'Substitute on - Beauden Barrett , New Zealand
32'Aaron Cruden has been placed safely on the ambulance. Good luck.
32'Aaron Cruden still receiving treatment. He is still prone on the turf. Medical staff clearly being very careful with what seems to be a neck injury.
31'Aaron Cruden looks to have a neck injury, and the Medi-Cab is on the field.
31'Player substituted - Rob Evans , Wales
31'Substitute on - Gethin Jenkins , Wales
30'Aaron Cruden is down in backplay, and referee Peyper calls time. "Safety first."
30'10-3 Penalty goal - Aaron Cruden , New Zealand
28'Jaco Peyper finally blows his whistle for offside, saying no advantage to New Zealand after nine phases.
27'New Zealand deep in Wales territory under advantage from the penalty, shifting the ball left and right.
25'Wales continuing to take the challenge to the All Blacks, and they are executing better in face of strong defence. Sam Warburton said pre-match the Welsh challenge was physical not mental, given their losing run; in which case, they're going to be challenged again in the final quarter. There's some heavy contact and big hits at this point, but 15 phases eventually went nowhere before they left their feet for a ruck penalty to NZL.
24'Player substituted - Gethin Jenkins , Wales
24'Substitute on - Rob Evans , Wales
23'Really good to see Israel Dagg back at his best, after missing the Rugby World Cup. deserved his recall on the back of good efforts for the Crusaders, and he's showing just how well stocked the All Blacks are for talent.
23'Kicking duel won by Israel Dogg on TKO, the All Blacks fullback roosting the pill to the Wales 22 from deep inside NZL territory, but the All Blacks concede the advantage by committing a lineout offence.
22'New Zealand ignore the goal kick to go for a lineout from which they drive. Aaron Smith passes long to Malakai Fekitoa, and the try is a certainty from there. So much space for Israel Dagg to coast over the line for a converted try.
22'7-3 Conversion - Aaron Cruden , New Zealand
20'5-3 Try - Israel Dagg , New Zealand
18'Waisake Naholo is released by Israel Dagg to rampage at Liam Williams on the right wing. Remember his form from last week, he is the stuff of Welsh wingers' nightmares.
17'Defensive lines are each up incredibly quickly, limiting time and space to the attacking side. Factor in the other facets of the game that are off, and we're short of a highlights reel.
17'Lovely kick from Dan Biggar, with a little fade, to open the scoring.
17'0-3 Penalty goal - Dan Biggar , Wales
15'Substitute on - Malakai Fekitoa , New Zealand
15'Player substituted - Seta Tamanivalu , New Zealand
14'No great pattern to the game yet. Both teams looking to put ball through hands but execution isn't good enough while kicking from hand is Meh.
13'Malakai fekitoa running free on the sideline. Lookinking good to return for Seta Tamanivalu.
12'Kieran Read, as any week, is involved everywhere, making ground from the back of the scrum and also rampaging in open play. His head-to-head with Toby Faletau, as last week, is a blinding contest.
8'Dan Biggar getting Wales backline on front foot each time he takes the ball into contact, and Jamie Roberts and Jonathan Davies looking threatening outside him, particularly in the channel inside the right wing as they target the new All Blacks centre pairing.
6'Seta Tamanivalu making good ground each time with ball in hand having replaced Malakai Fekitoa inside two minutes.
6'Waisake Naholo makes a but in midfield, making ground where noe existed. Same story as last week.
5'Wales looking good through five phases and looking to find space wide before penalised for failure to release in a ruck. Aaron Cruden clears the danger to halfway.
4'Wales dominate the first scrum of the game, awarded to them for a free-kick offence at a lineout, and Toby Faletau looks dangerous from the back.
2'All Blacks on the front foot after Kieran Read collects loose ball at the back of a Wales ruck, but the All Blacks turnover and Alun Wyn Davies effects a turnover. Scrappy early from both stages.
2'Substitute on - Seta Tamanivalu , New Zealand
2'Player substituted - Malakai Fekitoa , New Zealand
1'Massive clash between Jamie Roberts and Malakai Fekitoa, which leaves the All Blacks centre bloodied and hobbling from the field.
1'All Blacks spill the ball in contact and Wales counter first-phase through Toby Faletau and Jonathan Davies before going back to the right where replacement fullback Rhys Patchell spills the ball.
1'Here we go then. Aaron Cruden kicks off, the All Blacks fly-half going deep direct to Dan Biggar, who clears direct to touch.. Lineout on 22.
1'New Zealand and Wales anthems are both as passionate and stirring as one can hear. Stage set for the haka and kick-off. Perfect conditions for rugby.
1'Hello and welcome to our live coverage of the second Test between New Zealand and Wales. The Dragons pushed the All Blacks hard for 60 minutes at Eden Park last week, before the hosts' superior strength in depth told off the bench. Any confidence the tourists may have gained from that effort may, however, have dissipated when they crashed to the Chiefs in Hamilton on Tuesday. Read our preview here before kick-off.
1'0-0 Start of first half
