The All Blacks scored a convincing 78-nil win over Samoa in their rugby test in Auckland last night.
After absorbing some early Samoan pressure the All Blacks got their attack into gear in the second quarter and finished with four first half tries to Anton Lienert-Brown, Beauden Barrett, Ardie Savea and Sonny Bill Williams.
Barrett converted them all to take a 28-nil lead into half time.
The hosts then ran amok in the second half scoring another eight tries through Israel Dagg, Julian Savea, Codie Taylor, Beauden Barrett, Vaea Fifita, TJ Perenara, Ardie Savea and Sam Cane.
In another test match yesterday, Wales beat Tonga 24-6 in a close encounter.
