New Zealand head coach Ian Foster said he was disappointed with the All Blacks conceding two late tries in the Bledisloe Cup opener against Australia played at Eden Park on Saturday.
After no points were scored in the opening 17 minutes, Richie Mo'unga helped New Zealand get into the groove with three straight penalties before tries from Sevu Reece, Mo'unga, David Havili and Damian McKenzie ensured they stretched their lead to 33-8 at the start of the final quarter.
Even though, the All Blacks started the series with a win, Tom Banks provided some consolation for the Wallabies with two late tries in the final 12 minutes which did not please Foster.
"The last 15 [minutes], we were certainly disappointing in the way we stepped off the pace," Foster said.
"There's plenty to work on from those spells but it's a first Test and the first Bledisloe was always going to be a massive Test.
"But the way we came back and squeezed them, I thought we were doing really well at 33-8.
"But it was disappointing as we take a lot of pride in how we finish and we didn't finish that well.
"There's some things we'll take away to work on."
New Zealand, who have not lost a Bledisloe Cup trophy since 2003 have taken a 1-0 lead in the three-match series with the second game which will also be the Rugby Championship opener will be played at Eden Park on 14th August.
