The All Blacks have just beaten Scotland in their latest game on their Northern Hemisphere tour.

Scotland have not beaten the All Blacks 117-years, but this was one of the closest they have come to an upset.

The All Blacks eventually won the match 31-23 to extend their current winning streak to six.

The games started well for New Zealand as they raced to a 14-0 lead after just seven minutes thanks to tries from Samisoni Taukei’aho and debutant Mark Telea.

However, 23 unanswered points by Scotland had them leading 23-14. By the 65th minute the All Blacks had only narrowed that by 3 points. However, the decisive point of the game came in the 65th minute when Scottish loose forward Jack Dempsey was sin binned.

The All Blacks made the most of the advantage and scored 2 late tries to snatch the victory.
