The All Blacks saw their tier-one winning streak end at 17 matches with a 12-12 draw against Australia in the Rugby Championship.

New Zealand dominated possession in the first 30 minutes, but Australia were able to stay in the match, trailing by just six points at the half.

The All Blacks let the Aussies close the gap in the second half after two players had been sin-binned.

A pair of kicks from Kurtley Beale in the second half would provide the Wallabies with the necessary margin, as the two sides fought to a draw and a temporary share of second in the competition.
