The Bledisloe Cup and Rugby Championship for 2014 is underway but New Zealand's quest for an 18th straight test win is over.

One of the most highly anticipated non-World Cup trans-Tasman tests for several years certainly lived up to its billing as the All Blacks and Wallabies battled to a 12-12 draw in Sydney on Saturday night.

In what was a disappointing performance, who do you think shone for the All Blacks? Was it the right call to play Ben Smith at fullback over Israel Dagg?

And what did you make of the yellow cards to Wyatt Crockett and Beauden Barrett?

What were the key moments? Did the referee ruin what could have been a good contest? Or was it the Sydney weather that upset proceedings?

Should we be worried ahead of this Saturday's Bledisloe encounter at Auckland's Eden Park?

It's time to have your say by hitting the big green button.
