All Blacks 58-14 Namibia – New Zealand Cruise to Commanding Victory

The New Zealand All Blacks have won their second Rugby World Cup match against Namibia 58-14. “Namibia battled heroically but there was never any chance of it being another Japan versus South Africa”, writes Mike Dickson for The Daily Mail.

“If Namibia hoped to hold their own for at least the first ten minutes that was quickly dashed as the black tide quickly began to engulf them”, as reported in the article.

Tries were scored by Victor Vito, Nehe Milner-Skudder (2), Malakai Fekitoa and Beauden Barrett in the first as well as by Julian Savea (2), Ben Smith and Codie Taylor in the second half.

Sonny Bill Williams provided the first real bit of All Black magic after 20 minutes, in the form of an intuitive, glancing offload to his outside centre partner Malakai Fekitoa, who went over under the posts.

In the 53rd minute Namibian centre Johan Deysel “charge(d) through two tackles” and drove over the line, which “was met with a roar that could be heard around East London”.

“To play against the No 1 team in the world, we did well and stuck to our guns. We gave some stupid tries away but that is a lack of experience. It is a dream come true to score against the All Blacks. It is amazing”, said Namibian try scorer Johan Deysel as reported in The Telegraph.
