Barrett sees red for All Blacks in Australia Test

Barrett sees red for All Blacks in Australia Test”

Wales have moved to the top of the World Rugby Rankings for the first time in history following New Zealand's shock record 47-26 defeat to Australia in Perth this morning. The offence occurred at a ruck just before half-time.

The hulking lock was given his marching orders by referee Jerome Garces shortly before the end of the first half, after he was deemed to have shoulder charged Wallabies star Michael Hooper in the back of the head and neck.

It could also put Barrett in doubt for New Zealand's World Cup opener against South Africa in Yokohama on September 21, another big blow after his fellow lock Brodie Retallick dislocated his shoulder in the 16-16 draw with the Springboks last week. Our discipline was poor in the first half. "There were numerous occasions we got offside when we didn't need to", he said.

A risky Australia pass on halfway just evaded Anton Lienert-Brown, allowing James O'Connor - making his first start since 2013 - to pick up the ball, hold off Jack Goodhue and free Reece Hodge for a straightforward dash with a one-handed offload.

The Wallabies now lead the Rugby Championship clash in Perth by 26-12 at half-time and Barrett's dismissal will make it very hard for Steven Hansen's men to mount a second half comeback.

"At the same time, I'm extremely proud of the way they hung in".

"And Australia wanted to play footy, they wanted to play fast".

The win opens the door for the Australians to bring home the Bledisloe Cup after 17 years away, but to do so they must crack their first win in Auckland since 1986.

"The red card didn't help us, but we didn't help ourselves either". "Attitudes change, we probably won't have Scotty Barrett so we'll have to make some team changes, but we've just got to get our game going and play with a bit more confidence".

In what could potentially be seen as a good omen, he joins an illustrious club, which includes Cyril Brownlie, Colin Meads and Sonny Bill Williams.
