The All Blacks have become a beatable team, and no longer assured of 1st spot in the IRB rankings.
Some of the tight 5 were past their best, and if Retalick was not available their pack got bullied.
Whitelock seemed to be past his best, and the props even more so. Whitelock may just be overplayed and in needing a rest, but his form over the last 2 years has certainly dipped. The props were way past it.
In the world cup semi-final, Scott Barrat was moved from lock to flank to add some mongrel
This backfired totally as they were still outmuscled, but were also slow getting to rucks to create turnovers for a counter-attack.
The Australian pack has been a joke for some time now. The Ozzie tight five players would struggle to make many other international teams. The Pooper loosie combination is now a retirement plan.
