The All Blacks returned to the chair and defeated Wales 54-16

The All blacks they returned to lecture and beat Welsh in Cardiff by 54-16. Ian Foster’s team, as is characteristic, took over the match from the first moment, controlled the tempo and finished it off early.

As is customary, the men in black imposed their pressing pressure from the first minute. It was precisely because of this siege by the New Zealand defense that in just 4 minutes the match already had a try in its statistics. After a defensive Welsh line, the ball was received by Anscombe opened but it was read perfectly for Beauden Barrett, who positioned himself to receive and printed all his speed to support under the posts.

This initial blow was quickly absorbed by the locals, who with the support of their audience began to hurt a little more and more. Despite the good attacks, the New Zealand defense barely allowed a handful of penalties – one converted by Anscombe – to make it 7-3. The turning point of the first half came at 18 minutes, when a very disappointed Alun wyn jones he had to withdraw from the court due to a shoulder injury. The Dragon felt the loss of its captain and began to give up possession to the All Blacks, who as usual managed the game tempo to perfection.

The domain was total. The men in black forced Welsh to defend very close to the Ingoal. The defense of the premises had an exhaustive defensive work, avoiding in many cases another try of the New Zealanders. However, the siege of those led by Ian Foster ended up taking effect and those in black increased their lead to 15 points with two penalties converted by Jordie Barrett and a try minutes before halftime by TJ Perenara. The latter sparked a reaction in Welsh, who for the remainder of the first half tried to cut the deficit, but only managed to score three points through another converted penalty from Anscombe.

That reaction from Welsh was barely left in those last minutes. For the complement, the dynamics that had been established by a large part of the party became present again. After two penalties per side, the All Blacks again broke into the local ingoal through Will jordan. The wing starred in a really superb play, showing all his speed to go hand in hand with Tomos Williams, throwing a hat and taking an important advantage to support him with all the tranquility of the world.

However, this new blow – which was felt in the silence of the stadium – did not seem to affect the attitude of the Red Dragons. Just six minutes later, Johnny Williams dipped through the center of the New Zealand defense and received a kick from Rhys Priestland, who read the play perfectly. The conquest generated the explosive reaction of the public and also of the All Blacks, who quickly scored two tries to escape in the match. The first through Papalii and the remainder signed by Reece, which culminated a spectacular play for the lead.

With the match fully defined, the All Blacks signed two tries-one signed by Beauden Barrett and by Anton Lienert-Brown more to give the final details to another great victory, this time by 54-16 to Welsh. This second game of the November sale, this time against a much tougher opponent, once again demonstrated the great moment of Ian Foster’s team, which once again positions itself indisputably as the best team in the world. Next stop for New Zealand will be Rome, where they will face Italy.
