McCaw rues vital errors





All Black skipper Richie McCaw cited crucial errors from his side for the reason behind their shock 20-15 Bledisloe Cup defeat against Australia in Melbourne on Saturday.

Having led 15-6 at the interval New Zealand failed to score in the second half and coughed up two crucial tries whilst down to fourteen men.

“We made crucial mistakes,” McCaw lamented to Fox Sports.

“We had them on the ropes at halftime and had we scored early in the second half it might have been a different matter.”

Despite dominating for long periods in the second period New Zealand could not capitalise on their territory and possession and often came up with basic errors at key times.

Australia fed off the errors and grew in stature as the game went on, and their never-say-die attitude showed through according to McCaw.

“But the Aussies never lie down, they showed that and played the rugby in the second half,” he concluded.
