The All Blacks have scored seven tries on their way to a 47-9 victory over Italy in Rome.

Overall the All Blacks will be disappointed with the performance due to the high number of mistakes.

Halfback Finlay Christie opened the scoring before man of the match Dane Coles scored twice in the first half.

In the second half Sevu Reece and Hoskins Sotutu scored as well as Asafo Aumua scoring twice.

The main talk point from the game was that the All Blacks set new world records for the most Test points and tries scored in a year.

They have now scored 96 tries in 2021, breaking the record of 92 set by Argentina in 2003.

Their total points tally now stands at 675, eclipsing South Africa’s 658 in 2007.

Next up for New Zealand is a trip to face Ireland.
