New Zealand vs Namibia LIVE: Rugby World Cup scores and latest updates as All Blacks dominate in Toulouse

All-Blacks all set for Rugby World Cup

New Zealand’s Rugby World Cup campaign continues with a critical fixture against Namibia on tonight as the All Blacks look to respond positively following their loss to France in the opening match of the tournament.

A superb second half display from the hosts helped them secure a 27-13 triumph over Ian Foster’s side and New Zealand will hope to get back on track when they face a supposedly weaker Namibia side who sit bottom of Pool A.

Allister Coetzee’s side slumped to a 23rd consecutive World Cup defeat when they were hammered 52-8 in their opener against Italy. With Pool A featuring a bunch of strong teams, and with New Zealand needing to win to offset their loss to France, this match could prove to be another tricky outing for the African team.

TRY! New Zealand 64 -3 Namibia 66 mins

Clarke gets his try! Richie Mo’unga drags the defenders in and looks as if he’s going to pass, but his crossfield kick lands perfectly for Clarke to gather and cross the line.

It’s his sixth try for New Zealand and his first at the World Cup after being close at various points in the match in the buildup. McKenzie (again) with the conversion.

New Zealand 57 – 3 Namibia 63 mins

The backs join the maul and Namibia are so close to the line but the ball is fumbled as well as a player being offside. It’s the closest they’ve got to the line all game but it wasn’t to be. The French crowd really seem to be getting behind them!

HALF TIME! New Zealand 38 – 3 Namibia

New Zealand looking to be confidently on the way to that record-breaking 50th win with that first half performance that was just too much for Namibia, particularly in defence. A tough blow for Namibia losing Le Roux Malan in such horrific fashion early on in the match.

All Blacks set themselves up well with consistently strong set pieces and excellent link up play to drive them over the line.

TRY! New Zealand 38 -3 Namibia 38 mins

McKenzie gets the next for the All Blacks, his second of the night! He’s set up well by Roigard who gives him the perfect offload after drawing in multiple defenders from a break. The fly-half converts his own score and New Zealand have a comfortable lead approaching half time. The rain looks to have finally stopped too, things are really brightening up for New Zealand and it’s only the first half!
