    Wonder if NZ are obliged to play a few 'named' players. SBW, Read and Barrett might start?

    Hmm, looks like it has not be picked up by any of the UK TV channels....was hoping to get a good look at some of the up and coming ABs and seeing how Japan are shaping up.

    I did see that it will be streamed on the All Blacks web page for countries where it is not on TV. I don't know if that induces the UK.

    Japan killing it. Are they pro's? Yes they are.

    All Blacks obliterated. Japan, an absolute masterclass in Union once again.

    I know they got battered but Japan putting 5 tries on the ABs is pretty crazy, even if the ABs were never in danger of losing

    great rugby from both sides, loved it

    for all folks saying the AB's debutants cheapened the jersey like Mr Duncan Garner, they need to get real. Hansen doing the right thing and all those players were worthy of being capped, been playing great rugby for years in NZ

    preparing for the future and next generation getting these guys in early

    Bridge, Papali'i will be future All Black stars

    The phrase gets thrown around a lot and I've never agreed with it but the commotion surrounding Japan "approaching" (Standing 10m away)the haka suggests to me that the game has gone soft... Or at least the fans.

    Highlights. A stupid amount of space in behind the Japan line, I've never even heard of the guy who started for them at fullback. Were Matsushima and Naguya unavailable?

    The ABs have been and always will be snowflakes about the haka.

    Not quite what the French did with their arrow shaped approach during the RWC 2011 final.
