New Zealand ease past Wales

New Zealand picked up their first points of the Four Nations as they defeated Wales 36-0 this afternoon at Wembley.

Few bookmarkers and pundits had given Wales much chance of causing an upset but the Welsh side demonstrated good enthusiasm despite failing to get on the score-sheet.

The Kiwis went in at the half time break 26-0 in the lead thanks to tries from Jason Nightingale, Kevin Locke, Sika Manu (2) and Gerard Beale, with Marshall adding two conversions.

The Welsh did manage to restrict New Zealand to just two tries in the second half with Beale crossing for his second along with a try from Nathan Fien, Marshall converting Fien’s try.

Wales did pressure the Kiwi defensive line in the closing stages but failed to cross the whitewash to leave the final score at Wales 0-36 New Zealand.
