New Zealand continued their globe-trotting journey by demolishing the weakened Six Nations champions in Cardiff. Beauden Barrett starred as the All Blacks romped to a 54-16 victory, regaining their place at the top of the world rankings in the process.

They've put up a ludicrous 158 points in their last two games. To put that into context, Italy have only managed 131 over over 14 Test matches against New Zealand.

That said Italy, now led by former All Black Kieran Crowley, fared much better than usual in their past three games against New Zealand, their 2019 Rugby World Cup clash and a planned double-header in July having all been cancelled.

It's been five years since their last victory against a Tier 1 nation, and it would be a shock of all shocks if that was to change today. Follow our guide as we explain all the ways to get a rugby live stream and ways to watch Italy vs New Zealand for FREE.
