All Blacks issue World Cup warning with 92-7 win over Tonga

It was a colourful way for Smith, Crotty and captain Kieran Read - who also scored a try - to end their Test careers on New Zealand soil.

Inside centre Ryan Crotty, who was not injured, was taken off immediately after he scored his second try in the 65th minute at Waikato Stadium despite the All Blacks having used all of their replacements.

When asked whether it was in preparation for a yellow or red card at the upcoming World Cup, he replied: "We have plenty of those tests anyway and we don't need too many more of them".

"Clearly his welfare was extra essential and it was a great alternative once more to place ourselves below a little bit of stress with regards to what number of we've got on the park".

"Part of our planning is understanding what we are coming into".

"So, it is an unique challenge to us and if we really embrace that, like I said before, and have fun doing it then that helps you deal with all the pressure that comes with it".

"He played 40 last week [in Canterbury's 80-0 Mitre 10 Cup victory over Southland] and 65 today and will be good to go in a couple of weeks".

"Tonga will be targeting this game in a bid to build momentum into their Rugby World Cup campaign, and so are we, as it's going to be important for both teams to head into the Tournament with confidence".

"Everyone got a run, and no injuries. We didn't execute it, so we got put to the sword", Piutau said.

"We got rugby time. We got exactly out of it what we needed to get out of it".

"This World Cup is going to be incredibly tough and the motivation is to get your name and your team into history - a three-peat would be massive for the boys".

For those in the United States looking to watch the match, it won't be on regular TV, but can watch the game live on ESPN+, the digital streaming service from ESPN that has exclusive coverage of dozens of live sports, all the 30-for-30 documentaries and other original content for $4.99 per month.

"You are expected to win all the time so you have to make a choice whether you sink or you stand up", Hansen said. "No, [we are] trying very hard to stay focused on what we're trying to do, which is coach a team to try and win a third World Cup [in a row]", he said.
