Reiko Ione started for New Zealand while Beaudein Waaka, Jack Goodhue and Dylan Collier all came off the bench in the first match of Day#1 against Canada.
The final score was 26-5 to the Kiwis.
Canada are without several of their biggest stars and didn’t fire at all. Also, the All Blacks got a lot of the referee’s calls. The men in black looked comfortable without being clinical.
Ione and Waaka scored tries along with Sherwin Stowers, Sam Dickson and Gillies Kaka.
Ione looked comfortable on the big stage, breaking the odd tackle and taking on the defensive line.
Canada scored at the final hooter but they were well beaten.
The Kiwis will get a serious workout in their last match of the day at 9pm when they take on England.
