New Zealand continued their long reign of dominance over Wales by winning a one-sided Autumn Nations Series clash 55-23 in Cardiff.

The All Blacks made it 33 successive victories against their hosts, who have still not toppled New Zealand since December 1953.

Aaron Smith surpasses Dan Carter to become the most capped back in All Blacks history by playing his 113th test.

The 33-year-old Smith scored tries on either side of half-time in what was most likely his final game for the All Blacks in Wales.

Hooker Codie Taylor, scrum-half Aaron Smith and centre Jordie Barrett each scored two tries, while number eight Ardie Savea and replacement hooker Samisoni Taukei’aho also touched down as New Zealand never lost control after building an early 17-point advantage.

Fly-half Richie Mo’unga added four conversions and a penalty, and Beauden Barrett booted two conversions, with the All Blacks proving ruthless in terms of gathering points when inside Wales’ 22.

Wales had their moments, notably tries from Test debutant Rio Dyer and skipper Justin Tipuric, with Gareth Anscombe kicking three penalties and two conversions.
