Rugby World Cup – All Blacks run away against Canada


The All Blacks scored nine tries to none when they beat Canada 63-0 on Wednesday.

It was a match which the All Blacks totally dominated but they will not be happy with the many handling errors from the match. Two certain tries were spilled by some ordinary knock-on by Scott Barrett and Beauden Barrett.

Canada fight bravely but were never going to be any real problem for the World Champions and also had a few opportunities which they could not convert into points.

The All Blacks started the game as expected with playing the ball out of the hands and quickly moved into Canada twenty two.

After a great scrum Read could not get the ball down but referee Poite awarded the All Blacks a penalty try to open the scoring.

This gave them a 7-0 lead after just 5 minutes.

There second try came from a brilliant cross-kick by Richie Mo”unga for Jordie Barrett to run in an easy try in the corner. Mo’unga converted the try to give them a 14-0 lead.

Sonny Bill Williams was next to score for New Zealand when he broke the midfield defence of the Canadians for their third try and a 21-0 lead.

Canada were taking some good advantage of the All Blacks handling errors but were every time stopped by great scrambling defence from the men in black.

Scott Barrett went over the line which should have been their bonus point try but loss the ball over the line.

The All Blacks were creating some great opportunities but handling let them down which left them going into the break with a 28-0 lead.

In the first sixteen minutes of the second half the All Blacks scored four tries through Rieko Ioane, Scott Barrett, Shannon Frizell and Brad Weber to extend their lead to 56-0.

The All Blacks kept on dominating the match with a two more from Weber to take their score to 63-0.

The All Blacks could not add anymore points as handling become a huge problem again in the last quarter of the match.

Non the less the All Blacks got the bonus point win and will look forward for the next one.

  1. Even against Canada we will still persist with our kak up-and-udder kicks. What a joy to see some teams actually playing rugby at the RWC – but then some believe it is all about defence defence kick defence.
