Rugby-All Blacks thrash Australia in Tri-Nations to retain Bledisloe Cup

SYDNEY, Oct 31 (Reuters) - New Zealand romped to a record 43-5 victory over Australia in the Tri-Nations opener in front of a crowd of 25,689 at the Olympic Stadium on Saturday to retain the Bledisloe Cup for the 18th straight season.

The Tri-Nations, which also involves Argentina, replaced the Rugby Championship after world champions South Africa withdrew from the annual southern hemisphere test competition citing player welfare concerns. (Reporting by Nick Mulvenney Editing by Frances Kerry)
