Sevu Reece and Hoskins Sotutu scored a try each as the All Blacks walloped Italy 47-9 in Rome this morning.

Finlay Christian got the first try of the match before man of the match Dane Coles scored twice.

Richie Mo’unga converted all three tries.

Italy stayed in the match thanks to two penalties from Paolo Garbisi before the break but New Zealand pulled clear in the final quarter.

Winger Reece crossed over before Asafo Aumua scored twice, either side of a Hoskins Sotutu try, while Garbisi had the last penalty kick.

Next up for New Zealand is a trip to face Ireland, while Italy hosts Argentina.
