    TRANSCRIPTS: COMMENTATOR: "Twenty-five minutes gone. Bevan Wilson opens the scoring in the test. New Zealand three, Australia nil.



    Nine Minutes left, Dalton floats, Donaldson,...in front of Bruce to Taylor but the combination between. A penalty has gone here. What was that for Trevor, we did not see that?



    SECOND COMMENTATOR: "Well, quite frankly looking at it he obviously penalised done of the Australian flankers for coming out too quickly."



    COMMENTATOR: "Third attempt today for Bevan Wilson. That is two penalties now for Bevan Wilson. Eight minutes to go until half time.



    Donaldson Seear, Bryan Williams. No more popular try-scorer than Bryan Williams.



    That is a fine kick. Australian one the board. Ken Wright, a penalty goal. Ten points to three, half time approaches.



    Good scrum position again. Hipwell the short side. Batts, Batts' power gets it through. Big Paddy Batts, 15 stone (95 kilograms), Hipwell ran the blind side, which is his strength and Batts just powered across.



    An important line-out for both teams with the score so close. A little delay by Haughton, that is a good move, and Polecky gets stuck in here.



    The kick, if it goes over, could put New Zealand ahead. It does."
