Sevu Reece scored a try as the All Blacks locked up the Bledisloe Cup for the 19th consecutive year with a big 57-22 win over the Wallabies in Auckland.

New Zealand powered away in the second half to wrap up this year's series against Australia at a half-full Eden Park last night.

The win is a record high score against the Wallabies, beating the 54 points scored in Sydney in 2017.

The Wallabies were unable to capitalise on Ardie Savea's yellow card which came in the 41st minute.

With 14 men on the field, the All Blacks still stacked up the points.

All Blacks coach Ian Foster says the Wallabies wanted to play good competitive rugby and the All Blacks wanted to respond to that.

The win did not just extend the All Blacks' streak in the Bledisloe Cup. The team's unbeaten run at Eden Park, which dated back to 1994, was taken to 45 matches, while the Wallabies had now not won at the ground for 36 years.

It was also the 15th straight year Australia had failed to beat the All Blacks in New Zealand.

Wallabies coach Dave Rennie says they were well beaten because they did not treasure the ball well enough.

Last night's result means the third and final Bledisloe Cup test in Perth in two weeks is now a dead rubber.
