Johnson leads NZ point scorer

Shaun Johnson has become New Zealand's leading Test point-scorer as the Kiwis' ran riot in a 74-6 rout of Scotland at Christchurch Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The Kiwis amassed a staggering 14 tries as they blew Scotland away in a performance that will leave the rest of the competition weary of having to encounter a side now beaming with confidence.

The three tries to both Peta Hiku and Te Maire Martin will hold prominence at the top of the scoreboard, but it was the clinical, across-the-park showing of the entire team which stood out. It was a 28-point shut-out in the opening 40 minutes and after the break the free-flowing and ad-lib football continued as New Zealand took advantage of the glorious conditions and dry track.
