23:10 – Match summary
New Zealand crushes Uruguay (73-0) and secures a ticket to the quarter-finals of the 2023 Rugby World Cup! The start of the match was fairly balanced and Uruguay were about to surprise the All Blacks but Los Terros’ attempt was disallowed. This event eventually awakens Ian Foster’s men. McKenzie broke the deadlock in the 21st minute and opened the New Zealand festival. Monga turns before imitating McKenzie on the same stage of play after a rally five meters away (25th position). Then the leading scorer of the evening passes a massive number. Will finds Jordan with a very tasty one-handed pass (33rd). 5 minutes later, Cam Roegaard also tried and offered his team the attacking bonus point. At the end of the first half, the All Blacks led 26-0. The start of the second period was much less exciting than the first because the New Zealanders continued the festival that started just before the break. Fletcher Newell marks his entry into play with a try after returning from the dressing room (45th) ahead of Fainga’anuku who also opens his counter (49th). He would score a brace after goals from McKenzie and Jordan before making the bill more and more for Los Terros. But Leicester Vainga’anuku managed to score a hat-trick in New Zealand’s eleventh attempt in the final minutes of the match (77). This would be the All Blacks’ final try in this game. The Oceanians can now fully head towards the knockout stage having completed this group stage perfectly.
