Wales 23 New Zealand 55
Eight tries and 55 points on the scoreboard. A run of 33 wins against Wales. The All Blacks began their Autumn Nations Series with a hefty win at the Principality Stadium.
There were try doubles for Aaron Smith, Jordie Barrett, Codie Taylor, while Ardie Savea – who was sensational all game – and Samisoni Taukei’aho also scored.
It was not all doom and gloom for the hosts. Rio Dyer’s score on debut was sumptuous stuff. But when Wales scored, it never stopped the All Blacks totally in their tracks.
So when Wales captain Justin Tipuric went over for a score, the All Blacks went right down the other end and got another for Aaron Smith.

In the last quarter of the match New Zealand blitzed the Principality. It was a harsh lesson for Wales and one fans will hope is heeded. Before this tour, there was chat of the All Blacks being wounded and there for the northern sides to get at. Now they head to Edinburgh with a punishing performance under their belts.
