All Blacks run rampant to thrash Namibia in Tokyo

Match Commentary

82'And that's that! Eleven tries in total for the All Blacks as they run out 71-9 winners over Namibia.
81'+171-9 End of second half
80'What. A. Try! TJ Perenara starts a break from inside his own 22, is tackled, is up off the deck and then receives a brilliant Brad Weber behind-the-back pass before crashing over just millimetres before being tackled into touch. Even Steve Hansen was up out of his seat! Jordie Barrett misses the conversion and it's 71-9 to the All Blacks.
