Top effort by Holmes in Bledisloe Cup

ALLORA prop Greg Holmes shared in his first Wallabies victory against the All Blacks on Saturday night in Sydney.

Holmes was playing his fourth game against New Zealand and his first since 2007. He now has 11 wins in 16 games against all countries.

He came on in the second half and was again prominent, especially in defence in the final minutes when the game was in the balance.

The Australian scrum was again praised as was the use of the bench by coach Michael Cheika.

Replacement half-back Nic White put Australia up 20-19 late in the game with a long-range penalty and he then broke away from 10 metres out to score the winning try which was converted for a 27-19 win.

The Australians won the Rugby Championship with an unbeaten run against South Africa, Argentina and New Zealand.

Australia will play New Zealand again on Saturday at Eden Park in Auckland before heading to Europe later this year for the World Cup.
