Maori All Blacks dispatch Manu Samoa to farewell Otere Black in style
In Otere Black’s farewell match for the side, who he has played 12 times for since 2015, ahead of his imminent departure to Japan, the Maori All Blacks ran in six tries (two of which were penalty tries) to three.
Ill-discipline didn’t help Manu Samoa’s case, as yellow cards to blindside flanker Sam Slade and reserve loose forward Gensis Mamea Lemalu meant the visitors only had a full cohort of players for 60 minutes of the game.
The result follows the Maori All Blacks’ 35-10 win over Manu Samoa in Wellington last week, with the latter side set to continue their mid-year test schedule against Tonga over the coming fortnight in back-to-back World Cup qualifying matches.
