Winger Sevu Reece scored three first half tries and Ardie Savea one in his 50th test for New Zealand to give the All Blacks a 29-6 lead at half-time.

Fiji hit back early in the second spell with a try to prop Peni Ravai, but the All Blacks continued to dominate, running in five second half tries – including a double for hooker Samisoni Taukei’aho on debut.

The New Zealanders took a while to hit their straps, but once Reece scored his first try in the 14th minute, they never looked back.

Two more Reece tries in the space of six minutes opened out the lead – Savea adding another right on the half-time hooter – with Fiji’s only points coming from two Ben Volavola penalties.

Will Jordan added a fifth for the All Blacks just a couple of minutes into the second spell, and although Ravai crashed over soon after for Fiji’s sole try, the New Zealand win never looked in doubt.

Rieko Ioane and Shannon Frizell added to the tally, with Taukei’aho’s double rounding out an improved performance, particularly at scrum time.

“Really impressed with the boys the way they have fronted,” said All Blacks captain Sam Whitelock.

“I feel like we’ve had a lot of growth and development and we’re really tight as a team.

“We’ll enjoy this, it took us a while to grind away.”
