World champions New Zealand recovered from last week's defeat by Ireland with a convincing win against Italy.

The All Blacks, beaten 16-9 at the Aviva Stadium last Saturday, ran in 10 tries at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.

Jordie Barrett scored four of those tries, crossing twice each side of the break, while Damian McKenzie helped himself to a hat-trick of scores.

TJ Perenara, Ngani Laumape and Beauden Barrett also went over for New Zealand, who kept Italy to a single penalty.

New Zealand head coach Steve Hansen retained just four players from the starting team that lost to Ireland, as the All Blacks ended their autumn northern hemisphere tour in style.

It was a 15th defeat in as many meetings with the All Blacks for Italy, for whom Tommaso Allan was on target with a solitary penalty.
