09 Oct 2015

78' Carter misses for the first time tonight. NZ 47-9 Tonga. 

09 Oct 2015

76' TRY ALL BLACKS! NONU SCORES IN HIS 100TH GAME! That was made by the pace of Milner-Skudder who had acres of space before setting Nonu loose. 

09 Oct 2015

76' Tonga keep bashing away though ...

09 Oct 2015

75' The full time whistle would sound beautiful to the Tongans right now. 

09 Oct 2015

09 Oct 2015

72' Carter makes it 6 from 6. NZ 42-9 Tonga. 

09 Oct 2015

70' TRY ALL BLACKS! SAM CANE! Too much from the rolling maul there for Tonga to handle. Easy as you like. 

09 Oct 2015

70' Another attacking lineout and more trouble for Tonga. 

09 Oct 2015

70' Yip. Tonga lose substitute Paula Ngauamo to the bin for that silly, silly tackle. 

09 Oct 2015

69' Yellow card could be on the way here for a tip-tackle on Carter. 

09 Oct 2015

68' Milner-Skudder almost in for a hat-trick but some desperate defence keeps him out. 

09 Oct 2015

09 Oct 2015

09 Oct 2015

61' Another All Black penalty but Carter misses touch. 

09 Oct 2015

59' Ben Smith did so well to win the ball off the kick-off. Beauden Barrett (who is on the field now) stabbed it through and Milner-Skudder was first there. Carter's conversion is good. NZ 28-9 Tonga. 

09 Oct 2015

58' TRY ALL BLACKS! MILNER-SKUDDER!

09 Oct 2015

56' Tough for Tonga now, but they have another kickable penalty. 

09 Oct 2015

54' Carter nails the kick from wide right. NZ 21-6 Tonga. 

09 Oct 2015

52' TRY ALL BLACKS! NEHE MILNER-SKUDDER! That was just too much for Tonga to handle in the end. Phase after phase of purposeful NZ attack can only be kept out for so long. 

09 Oct 2015

51' All Blacks now have a lineout just 25m out ...

09 Oct 2015

49' This time Tonga go for goal. Kurt Morath makes no mistake! NZ 14-6 Tonga. Kieran Read comes back onto the field. 

09 Oct 2015

47' Wow! That was riveting from the men in red! 19 phases! They have the penalty after losing control of the ball but there were some SERIOUS hands in that passage. 

09 Oct 2015

47' Really good stuff from Tonga here. They're getting close!

09 Oct 2015

45' Tonga have the ball in the All Black half again and are looking lively. 

09 Oct 2015

44' Looks like he got a knee to the head so is probably seeing a few stars. 

09 Oct 2015

44' Tongan hooker Elvis Taione looks seriously injured right now. A lot of concern for him on the field. He is now sitting up, which is great news!

09 Oct 2015

42' All Blacks look dangerous from the outset but then give the penalty away for holding on. Kieran Read still has a couple of minutes left in the bin. 

09 Oct 2015

41' Second half underway as Tonga kick us off. 

09 Oct 2015

So unlucky for Tonga. You can't get much closer than that without scoring. Half time. NZ 14-3 Tonga. Join us in a few for the second half. 

09 Oct 2015

40' THREE minutes into added time now and Tonga have come so close! We're going to the TMO to see if they got over but it seems that the ball was held up. 

09 Oct 2015

40' Another penalty to Tonga! How is that not another yellow card!? How is that not a penalty try!? Tonga set up another scrum! 

09 Oct 2015

39' Tonga win another penalty! The All Blacks are on the ropes here. Another scrum! 

09 Oct 2015

39' Tonga go for the scrum from 5m out ...

09 Oct 2015

38' That's why! A huge rolling maul takes play 5m out before the All Blacks collapse the maul! Kieran Read is yellow carded and Tonga want to know why it isn't a penalty try! 

09 Oct 2015

37' Tonga going for the lineout this time. Why!? Three points were up for grabs there. 

09 Oct 2015

37' They've turned it over here and Tonga will have the penalty for a tip-tackle from Ben Smith! TMO intervention at its finest! 

09 Oct 2015

36' Tonga give away possession with a poor forward pass as they look to launch a backline move. 

09 Oct 2015

35' Penalty to Tonga after a collapsed maul. They can get into the NZ half now. 

09 Oct 2015

34' Tonga scrum inside their own half. They'll feel more in this than the scoreline suggests and will be desperate for points before the break. 

09 Oct 2015

32' Easy conversion for Carter. NZ 14-3 Tonga. 

09 Oct 2015

31' TRY ALL BLACKS! TONY WOODCOCK! That was clinical from the world champions, who attacked from the scrum through Waisake Naholo. Woodcock running at pace in the next phase and was too much from close range. 

09 Oct 2015

30' All Blacks get the scrum for a knock-on advantage when they thought they were in for a penalty. Still inside the Tongan 22m area though. 

09 Oct 2015

30' Trouble here for Tonga ...

09 Oct 2015

29' Poor clearance from Tonga allows NZ to run at them in pace ...

09 Oct 2015

27' All Blacks just struggling to get things going at times. Another handling error sees them lose the ball in a promising position.
