The All Blacks have finished third at the 2019 Rugby World Cup, beating Wales 40-17 in Tokyo.

Playing with intent and accuracy that had been absent in their semi final, New Zealand scored six tries to two at Tokyo Stadium.

The result extends their 66-year winning streak over Wales to 31 Tests.

The All Blacks scored four first-half tries to prop Joe Moody, fullback Beauden Barrett and Ben Smith, who picked up a double in his last game for the team.

Wales got on the scoreboard with a try to Hallam Amos and a penalty from Rhys Patchell, but trailed the All Blacks 28-10 at halftime.
