The All Blacks have trounced Tonga 102-0 in their first Test of the year in Auckland.

They scored 16 unanswered tries, which included winger Will Jordan scoring five times while Brad Weber scored three.

The result equalled New Zealand’s highest score against Tonga.

Covid-19 travel restrictions meant that Tonga was weaker than normal. They were missing their Europe-based players and had 13 debutants in their match-day squad.

It is the ninth time the All Blacks have notched a century of points.

Will Jordan’s haul of five tries was one short of the New Zealand’s Test record. That was set by Marc Ellis against Japan at the 1995 World Cup.

The All Blacks were 43-0 up at half time and were equally as dominate after the break.

New Zealand now have Tests against Fiji in Dunedin and Hamilton on 10 and 17 July.

  1. Tonga tried hard though. And to be fair it would be hard with the amount of inexperience in the Tonga team to give it a go was pretty awesome
