The All Blacks' 57-22 Rugby Championship victory over Australia for the weekend was marred by a half-empty Eden Park.

Ticket prices were roughly the same as last week, with Sky subscribers getting a last minute two for one deal when it was realised ticket sales were poor.

Newstalk ZB Sports editor Matt Brown says the lure of the All Blacks is not quite what it was, especially with this seemingly being the last home test for the year.

"The reality is, it hasn't been cancelled yet, but the South African test will move to Australia because of the border situation."

Brown says there's been so much feedback around the world on the crowd, which has had a negative impact.
