New Zealand faced Australia in the semifinals of the Rugby World Cup 2011, and the All Blacks won in convincing fashion over the Wallabies, 20-6. That’s not to say it was a lopsided match. Australia looked to give it their all, and every point was hard-earned—it was just that the All Blacks simply outclassed them.
And boy oh boy, the tackles in this match were something else. (Really, I wouldn’t mind Richie McCaw tackling me, as long as he doesn’t knock me unconscious and break any bones.)
Next week: it’s the Finals versus France!
