Watch: Waisake Naholo burns three Wallaby bystanders

All Blacks wing Waisake Naholo exploded in the second half against the Wallabies in Bledisloe 1, finishing with a game-high 126 running metres on 17 carries.

This scything run was one of his best, his second try of the night, picking up the pass on the bounce and burning through the Wallabies defence with blistering pace to score almost untouched. The Fijian left Wallaby replacements Pete Samu, Nick Phipps and young debutant Jack Maddocks clutching air as they let up momentarily when the ball hit the deck.

Naholo beat 13 defenders in total on four line breaks and really broke the game open after moving to the left wing after an injury to Rieko Ioane.

The Wallaby bench failed to make an impact, the All Blacks scored 19 of the 38 points in the final 20 minutes. When they look back at the performance on Monday, this will be one of the clips they will be disappointed with.
