New Zealand made it two wins from two in the Rugby World Cup with a 83-7 victory over Japan in their clash at Waikato Stadium in Hamilton.

The All Blacks ran in a total of 13 tries with winger Richard Kahui and replacement Sonny Bill Williams leading the way with two tries apiece. A clincical display from the tournament hosts also saw centre Conrad Smith, blindside Jerome Kaino, hooker Keven Mealamu, scrum-half Andy Ellis, fly-half Colin Slade, fullback Isaia Toeava, replacement Andrew Hore, centre Ma'a Nonu and openside Adam Thomson all cross for tries.

Slade added nine conversions with Japan preventing a whitewash thanks to a breakaway score from winger Hirotoki Onozawa.
