Italy that tends heavily, and New Zealand is surgical, but heavily punished. Learn about the tops and failures of the Italy-New Zealand match (7-49).
Dan Coles gets double
In a difficult first half, New Zealand can count on prostitute Dan Coles. Both in attack and defense, the 34-year-old gave the New Zealander the luxury of scoring two attempts on the ball. Skilled in throws, his numerous touches allowed his New Zealand teammates to put him in a top position very close to the Italian goal line. Dan Coles deserves a Man of the Match award for his off-road activity. “
Richie Muonga is almost perfect
New Zealand’s many attempts allowed opening player Richie Muonga to work in the kicking game. With competition from Beauden Barrett (today’s absent) in office, Richie Mo’unga often struggles to line up against publications. Author of 6/7 this afternoon, the opening game from New Zealand is reassuring and shows his coach that he is progressing from out to out under the All Blacks shirt.
Italy suffered from the wave of “all blacks”
Because of the curvature, it ends up breaking. The Italians would have held out about twenty minutes before cracking three times before the end of the first act. When we came back from the locker room, a scenario similar to the first half happened. The Italians fought with their physically limited weapons against the New Zealand attackers but the march was too high. The score is big again for the Squadra Azzura, which has shown its limits internationally in recent years.
New Zealand indiscipline
It is rare to feel nervous. New Zealand admitted 15 penalties during the match against the Italians. The black look of Ian Foster (New Zealand coach) in the stands spoke a lot about the attitude of the All Blacks. Undisciplined in areas of clashes, New Zealand’s lack of discipline is the black point in this game. Despite their huge victory, the All Blacks will have to be patient in defending their upcoming encounters, against Ireland, and then France.
