The victory was the perfect way for Eales to end his 86-Test career with the Wallabies. But it took a try to No.8 Toutai Kefu with just over a minute remaining to secure the victory after the Wallabies had blown a 19-6 half-time lead.
The All Blacks looked set to crash Eales' party when in the space of 10 minutes they had turned a 19-6 half-time deficit into a 23-19 lead thanks to two tries - from Pita Alatini and Doug Howlett.
England had had a disappointing 2004 though, losing five of their eight Test matches and finishing third in the Six Nations. Woodward went on to lead the Lions on an unsuccessful tour of New Zealand in 2005 - where his bloated side was whitewashed 3-0.
