New Zealand cruised to an expected victory over Namibia, scoring 9 tries in the process. New Zealand scored a couple of early tries and it looked as though a large score could be run up. However, after the opening 10 or 15 minutes, New Zealand seemed to play and score whenever they want. The highlight of the game was undoubtedly Namibia scoring their try in the second half.
A tricky game for New Zealand has been completed successfully (they could only struggle and not win by a big margin or conversely put up a big score and be told that it was expected) and they are top of the Pool and in complete control. Namibia lost as expected, but played well in patches and scored a memorable try. Whilst they will not qualify from the Pool, they have shown that they will be able to give the other teams in the Pool a game.
