Watch: Beauden Barrett Scores FOUR Tries Against Australia

New Zealand are swaggering their way to the Rugby Championship, as per. After a 38-13 win last weekend in Sydney, the All Black blitzed the Wallabies once again in Eden Park, Auckland.

They led by seven points in the first half, but then put the hammer down in the second half to win out on a scoreline of 40-12.

The undoubted star of the show was Beauden Barrett, with the out-half scoring, erm, FOUR tries.

Barrett scored both of New Zealand's tries in the first-half, and completed his hat-trick with this astounding effort on the hour mark:

Seven minutes later, Barrett was celebrating a fourth, only for Wayne Barnes and the TMO to intervene. Ardie Savea was deemed to have knocked the ball on in a tackle.

No matter: a sweeping All Blacks counter three minutes later ended with Barrett touching down in virtually the same spot as he had moments earlier. This time, there was no intervention from the referee.

Barrett, having listened to some claims that Richie Mo’unga should be New Zealand's starting 10, responded by drawing level with and then outstripping Dan Carter in the list of All Black try scorers. He scored 30 points in all.

Remarkable.
