The "Baby Blacks" levelled the series by defeating the Wallabies by the same score in Dunedin a fortnight later, but Australia clinched the series with a 22-9 victory in Auckland on September 6.
The All Blacks outscored by the tourists by six tries to one but the game is more notable for the fact that it marked the end of George Nepia's international career. The legendary fullback played 46 times for New Zealand, amassing 99 points in the process.
