The Black Ferns have proved far too strong for Samoa, winning their women's rugby international in Auckland 90-12.

It was the Black Ferns' second fixture in a four-nation series and followed their 38-3 win over Australia in Rotorua last weekend.

With fly-half Kelly Brazier influential in their attack, New Zealand ran in 14 tries at Eden Park. Fullback Selica Winiata bagged five of them, while there were doubles for wingers Honey Hireme and Renee Wickcliffe, and centre Huriana Manuel.

Samoa did have the final say with fly-half Bella Milo scoring her team's second try in the final minute.

The match was the curtain-raiser to the opening Test of the All Blacks' three-match series against England. They play Canada in Tauranga on Tuesday.
