Great match in front of a capacity Wellington crowd. Four tries in 15 minutes saw the score go from half time result 10-10 to 36-10. The Wales defence, which had looked solid, all of a sudden began falling off tackles and the All Blacks began attacking with conviction. The team showed their diversity and ability to threaten in a variety of ways and from different situations. Twice they struck from long-range and twice from set-piece close to the line. When they put their minds to it they're difficult to stop.
New Zealand 36 (Israel Dagg, Ben Smith, Beauden Barrett, Waisake Naholo, Ardie Savea tries; Aaron Cruden con, pen, Barrett 3 con) Wales 22 (Alun Wyn Jones, Liam Williams, Jonathan Davies tries; Dan Biggar pen, 2 con). HT: 10-10.
The All Blacks came away with three victories to secure the silverware for another year with the Welsh team putting out a remarkable performance against three sold-out crowds.
There will be no Steinlager Series in 2017 due to the British & Irish Lions coming to New Zealand to play in 10 matches throughout the country.
The all-important second match of the Steinlager Series will be held at Westpac Stadium on 18 June, so get to the Coolest Little Capital and show your support for the All Blacks in what will be a show-stopping series!
