I thought the impact of Retalick showed how much we missed him late last year and against France. He and Whitelock realy are the best locking combination we have had since i started watching rugby in the 80s.
We did have some pretty average timing in the first 30 minutes, which contributed to Crottys concussion. The drops weren't great but they did muscle up in defense. Read Cane and Squire were just relentless in their physicality and Pocock was almost a non-entitity for the whole game. He didnt get much of a chance to disrupt our ball at all.
Goodhue was good but man of the match? Thus was a game won by the pack and physically exerting their will in the second 20 minutes. We earnt the right to go wide by hurting the Australians itighter in and then the space came.
I did think Naholo had his most complete performance as an All Black. He went looking for work and was excellent in defence. He didn't get gun shy after he gave away the penalty and was instrumental in the two tries before and after half time.
