Score updates from the Tri-Nations rugby decider between the All Blacks and Wallabies at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane:

Fulltime: The Wallabies have held on for a famous 25-20 win to secure the Tri-Nations.

Up 20-3 at halftime, they absorbed a colossal New Zealand comeback which levelled the score at 20-20.

A try to Kurtley Beale, inspired by a break from halfback Will Genia, put the hosts back in front and they doggedly held on to record a win which will give them enormous confidence going into the World Cup.

It's the opposite for the All Blacks, who suffered their second straight defeat after losing to the Springboks in Port Elizabeth last weekend.

61st minute: Kurtley Beale try. Australia 25 NZ 20.

59th minute: Ma'a Nonu try. Dan Carter conversion. Australia 20 NZ 20.

51st minute: Conrad Smith try. Dan Carter conversion. Australia 20 NZ 13.

46th minute: Dan Carter penalty. Australia 20 NZ 6.

Halftime: It's all the Wallabies, who have opened up a cavernous 17-point lead, the same margin the All Blacks enjoyed at the break in their first meeting this month at Auckland.

The lead is throroughly deserved. The hosts have been all over the All Blacks in terms of urgency and accuracy and could even be further ahead if a couple of passes had stuck.

There will be worry tremors about the fitness of All Blacks loose forwards Kieran Read and Adam Thomson, who have both left the game with injuries to their left leg and left arm respectively.

Their departures have seen the early introduction from the bench of Victor Vito and Ali Williams, with the latter packing down in the unfamiliar role of blindside flanker.

34th minute: Radike Samo try. Quade Cooper conversion. Australia 20 NZ 3.

32nd minute: Quade Cooper penalty. Australia 13 NZ 3.

23rd minute: Dan Carter penalty. Australia 10 NZ 3.

15th minute: Will Genia try. Quade Cooper conversion. Australia 10 NZ 0.

5th minute: Quade Cooper penalty. Australia 3 NZ 0.
