New Zealand roared to a 41-13 win at an emotional Eden Park to retain the Bledisloe Cup against an Australia side who had no answer to the powerful running of Ma'a Nonu.
The dreadlocked centre, one of several All Blacks stars most likely playing his final Test on home soil before this autumn's World Cup in England, scored two tries and was involved in most of his side's best work in a dominant second half.
It was a historic night for Richie McCaw, who broke former Ireland centre Brian O'Driscoll's record as the most-capped Test player of all time, while Dan Carter had an almost perfect night from the tee to kick 16 points.
Stuart Lancaster says fly-half Danny Cipriani won't be judged on anything other than his ability on the pitch after being re-bailed by police.
Cipriani's availability for the World Cup was in doubt after he was arrested for drink-driving in June, but he has now been re-bailed until November, ensuring he can represent England in the tournament.
"We weren't in control of the initial date and we certainly weren't in control of this date," head coach Lancaster said.
"It's been extended by the police so we'll wait and see. He's not been charged by the police. He's here as a bona fide member of the squad and will be judged accordingly."
England fly-half Danny Cipriani is available for the World Cup after he was re-bailed until November in relation to his arrest for drink-driving.
The Sale Sharks man was arrested in June after he was involved in a collision with another car in London.
Cipriani was arrested and taken to a west London police station, but was released on bail soon after.
Head coach Stuart Lancaster said at the time he would not select Cipriani until he knew the outcome of case.
