  • FULL TIME - A stunning performance from the All Blacks who have bounced back in sensational fashion after their try-less defeat against Ireland last week.  The world champions barely gave Italy a look in - they ran in 5 tries in the second half to make it a total of 10 for the match.  The stars were Jordie Barrett with four tries whilst Damian McKenzie helped himself to a hat-trick.  At full time in Rome, it is New Zealand who have scored a thumping 66-3 victory over Italy.

    '
  • Let's have a look at how the two sides will line up this afternoon.
    '
  • New Zealand have had the wood over Italy having triumphed in all thirteen test matches between the two nations - by an average winning margin of 48 points.
    '
  • On the other side of the ledger, New Zealand are 11-2 from their thirteen test matches in 2018.  One of those defeats came at the hands of Ireland last week so you can be sure the All Blacks will come out breathing fire this afternoon.
    '
  • It has been a year to forget for Italy who have recorded just two test match victories from thirteen starts - their most recent defeat came against Australia last week where the Azzurri showed promise but ultimately lacked the finishing power to make it count on the scoreboard.
    '
  • A very warm welcome to Stadio Olimpico in Rome where the 2018 November internationals continue with Italy playing host to New Zealand.
