New Zealand – Uruguay: the All Blacks head into the quarters after a demonstration, the match summary


New Zealand largely won against Uruguay (73-0) this Thursday, October 5 and pocketed their ticket to the quarter-finals. The All Blacks take, at the same time, first place in Group A ahead of the French team which will play this Friday October 6 against Italy.

23:10 – The match summary

New Zealand crushes Uruguay (73-0) and secures its ticket to the quarter-finals of the 2023 Rugby World Cup! The start of the match is rather balanced and the Uruguayans are very close to surprising the All Blacks but the Los Teros try is canceled. This event ultimately resulted in the awakening of Ian Foster’s men. McKenzie broke the deadlock in the 21st minute and launched the New Zealand festival. Mounga transforms before imitating McKenzie in the same phase of play after a scrum five meters away (25th). The first scorer of the evening then passes on a hell of a number. He finds Will Jordan with an absolutely delicious one-handed pass (33rd). 5 minutes later, Cam Roigard also tried and offered his team the offensive bonus point. At the break, the All Blacks lead 26-0. The start of the second period is much less exciting than the first period because the New Zealanders continue the festival that started just before the break. Fletcher Newell marks his entry into play with a try after returning from the locker room (45th) before Fainga’anuku who also unlocks his counter (49th). He will score a double after those of McKenzie and Jordan previously making the bill more and more steep for Los Teros. But Leicester Fainga’anuku even managed to score a hat-trick on New Zealand’s 11th try in the final minutes of the match (77th). This will be the All Blacks’ last try in this game. The Oceanians can now fully turn towards the knockout phase after having ideally completed this group phase.
