All Blacks retain Bledisloe Cup with Wellington win over Wallabies

first_imgSaturday Aug 24, 2013 All Blacks retain Bledisloe Cup with Wellington win over Wallabies Ben Smith scored two tries as he and the All Blacks continued their fine form, beating the Wallabies 27-16 to retain the Bledisloe Cup in Wellington. Debutant flyhalf Tom Taylor kicked 14 points, while Tony Woodcock picked up his 100th Test cap.The Wallabies started off well and it looked like this occasion was going to be entirely different to what happened in Sydney a week ago, when they were thumped 47-29.A 6-0 lead in the first half from two Christian Lealiifano penalties gave them the edge before the All Blacks responded with two very well taken tries by Ben Smith, after some wonderful handling.With a 15-6 halftime lead, the All Blacks didn’t look too troubled in the second half and as Taylor got into the swing of things with the boot, even an intercept try by Israel Folau, who stepped namesake Israel Dagg beautifully, proved nothing more than a consolation.The Wallabies haven’t held the Bledisloe Cup since 2002 so will have to wait another year, although they will be able to have another crack at New Zealand when the two sides meet again in October.Their next match is against South Africa in Brisbane on September 7th, while New Zealand host Argentina in Hamilton on the same day. The Springboks take on Argentina in Mendoza tonight.We’d love to hear your thoughts on the match.

The group said that the lack of a rebound in home sales this spring has reinforced their view that there was more than harsh winter weather behind the recent slide in home sales and mortgage applications. The group notes that the road to housing recovery will be longer—and much bumpier—than expected.The group believes housing demand is still reeling from last spring’s spike in mortgage rates. They commented that a 70-basis point rise in mortgage rates coupled with a 6-point 2 percent rise in prices resulted in a 17.1 percent jump in monthly principal and interest payments. Payments on an existing home, irrespective of a slight dip in home prices, rose 11.9 percent. Consumer confidence in purchasing a new home within six months fell in May to 4.9 percent, which was below the 12-month moving average of 5.7 percent.Measuring new homebuilding against employment numbers—which only recently recovered from their recessionary decline—the National Association of Realtors found that historically, there is one new home built for every 1.5 jobs added to the economy. As of the first quarter, 32 states and the District of Columbia are above that ratio, meaning job growth has far outpaced new construction over the past three years. NAR believes that a majority of states are constructing too few homes, which will hamstring supply and slow home sales.
