All Blacks Coach Steve Hansen says Australia gave them a lesson in what to do when you have a side down by one man.
Speaking after the Wallabies 47-26 victory over the All Blacks in the Bledisloe Cup last night, Hansen targeted his side’s lack of composure in Perth while also complimenting Australia on their win.
Lock Scott Barrett became just the fourth All Black in history to be sent off when he led with a shoulder into the head of Wallabies skipper Michael Hooper. Barrett could face up to a suspension of up to six matches.
The All Blacks have lost to Australia and drawn with South Africa this season.

Wallabies Coach Michael Cheika says the fact the All Blacks played the second half with 14 men didn’t detract from the win at all.
The Wallabies and All Blacks face off in the second Bledisloe Cup test at Eden Park in Auckland at 7.35pm on the 17th of this month.
