It is no surprise that the All Blacks held their heads high on Friday with a clear win over Namibia (71-3).

A week after France (27-13) dominated the opening of the World Cup finals, New Zealand had to respond on Friday against the humble Namibian team. This was done with very clear success and a festival of attempts that began from the beginning of the match with a goal scored after a minute and a half by half-ball Cameron Roegaard, who did not delay in scoring a brace (the sixth).

Nine more attempts would follow, including two from Damian McKenzie (19th, 38th), and he particularly stood out with his joint partner during this meeting. With gaping holes in the Namibian defence, the All-Blacks did not ask for much to reassure themselves from the start of the match, with future Toulon Leicester Vainga’anuku showing his strength speaks (24) before Anton Lienert-Brown did not show his quality of kicking game (34H) to allow the New Zealanders to lead by 35 points in the first half (38-3).

Five attempts in the second half

On their return from the locker room, Ian Foster’s men did not slow down and scored five new tries through Ethan De Groot (48), Abraham Papale (54), David Havili (57), Caleb Clarke (67) and Riko Ioane (76). ). Imperial In concert and on the ball, the New Zealanders had a complete game while being punished very little. For a clear final result (71-3). The only downside was the red card received by Ethan De Groot for churning out Adrian Boysen after a header. It is possible that support for New Zealand will be suspended for the next two matches.
