    The Sentence Meaning

    Do I understand it right:

    But Wasps hit back with two or more penalties from Rob Andrew, the last with just seconds to go make it 9 all...
    as that Rob Andrew scored for his team to make 9 points in all before the game ended? It is just the word 'all' that confuses me. Or is it he equaled the score?

    No context, except for it was rugby.

    "9 all" is a score of 9-9.

    So Wasps were trailing 9-3, then Rob Andrew scored two penalties (worth 3 points each).

    "... two or more penalties... " makes no sense though, it would have to be "... two more penalties..."

    Mmm, thank you so much, you solved my dilemma. The sentence is a part of a transcript of some old TV programme, maybe it was took down incorrectly.

    Yes, 9 all, 2 all, 14 all. Common way to say both teams have the same score.
