New Zealand v Italy RECAP | World Cup

READERS’ FORUM: Welcome to our live coverage of the World Cup Pool A match between New Zealand and Italy at OL Stadium in Lyon


The All Blacks come into this match third in Pool A, five points adrift of opponents Italy, and a further three behind leaders France. An unthinkable defeat here would leave them facing a pool stage exit for the first time.

Italy have 10 points from a possible 10 so far, thanks to a 52-8 win over Namibia and a come-from-behind 38-17 victory over Uruguay. But their hard work starts here, first with this match then a final pool encounter with hosts France next Friday at the same venue.
