Japan vs. New Zealand: Re-Living All Blacks' Record Win in 1995

New Zealand face Japan for only the third time at full Test level on Saturday.

The last time the pair met was during the pool stages of the 2011 World Cup, with the All Blacks running out 83-7 winners on their way to reclaiming the Webb Ellis Cup.

But it was at the 1995 World Cup when they first came together in a clash that saw the record books ripped up.

The tournament became famous for South Africa’s victory over Jonah Lomu and Co. in a tense final, but the pool stage meeting between the men in black and the Brave Blossoms could not have been more different.

The All Blacks ran in 21 tries in a record 145-17 win.

Let’s have a look at the men who made a mark that day.
