57th min TRY KIWI FERNS to winger Madison Bartlett in the corner. Takes the ball, stands and bumps off the tackler and dives over. Charntay Poko cannot convert, she had the direction but not the distance.

Kiwi Ferns 34-8

What a sight at Mt Smart as Tonga enter the field of play! It looks like a sell out. Now the Kiwis! There's probably more Tongan than Kiwi supporters in the crowd. Now the national anthems! Benji Marshall in tears as God defend New Zealand is sung.

The cultural ceremonies for both teams... WOW! Siliva Havili in the front line for Tonga, and he looks fierce! Benji Marshall led the haka for New Zealand.

That was incredible!

45th min TRY KIWIS to Shaun Johnson, the bunker says he's grounded it, but it doesn't look like it! The Tongan player had his foot on the ball and they touch his foot! Great kick from Brandon Smith, which hits the upright to set it up. It is a hat trick for Johnson, three straight tries.

77th min TRY TONGA to Daniel Tupou. It is kicked to the corner, he grounds it... but not sure if he ever controlled the ball. No separation but he didn't ever control it. The bunker overruled the on field call.

Fiji kick off against Lebanon. Unfortunately, the matches were scheduled so close together that we saw none of the post match in Auckland, and missed the bulk of the pre match ceremonies at Leichhardt Oval.

Kiwi's looked good.

Tonga not quite the same threat without Jennings and Fifita.

26th min TRY FIJI to Brandon Wakeham, he does a big swan dive to ground it. Set up by a break from hooker Joe Lovodua. They are running freely, fast and Lebanon cannot stop the momentum. Wakeham converts his own try.
