Watch official World Cup highlights of New Zealands victory over Tonga
New Zealand triumphed in this game by some distance despite a uncharacteristically sloppy showing. Tonga were great early on, dominating the breakdown and scrum and forcing several penalties. New Zealand played a loose brand of rugby for large parts of the game, and gave away several penalties in the first half, however the All Blacks eventually forced themselves to seven tries.
Ben Smith and prop Tony Woodcock both scored first-half tries to give the All Blacks breathing space. Nehe Milner-Skudder scored twice before Sonny Bill Williams, Sam Cane and Ma’a Nonu added some shine to the scoreline. Ma’a Nonu was also making his 100th Test appearance.
