First live rugby test telecast

Although there had been direct live telecasting of other sporting codes from the mid-1960s, and rugby had allowed delayed coverage from 1962, it was not until 16 September 1972 that the first live telecast of an All Blacks rugby test occurred. The game was played between New Zealand and Australia at Eden Park, Auckland.  The presenters were Peter Montgomery and Bill McCarthy. This clip is from 10 minutes into the second half, when All Black halfback Sid Going scored a try. New Zealand won the game 38–3.
