The victory at Otago Boys' High School avenged a defeat two years ago which snapped a 13-match losing streak stretching back to 1975.

New Zealand led 17-3 shortly after halftime but saw their advantage whittled away to two points before replacement back Bryn Hall scored a converted try with nine minutes to play to end Australia's resistance.

New Zealand Schools 30 (Jason Emery, James Lowe, Bryn Hall tries; TJ Perenara 3 pen, 3 con) Australian Schoolboys 21 (Curtis Browning, Chris Feauai-Sautia tries; Dion Taumata 3 pens, 1 con) Halftime: 10-3.
