  1. Goodbye!

    FT: New Zealand 63-0 Canada

    So New Zealand have started the defence of their crown with two wins from their opening two games.

    The All Blacks racked up nine tries to cruise past Canada in a hugely entertaining performance in Oita.

    The day began with France also maintaining their winning start to the tournament with an underwhelming victory over the United States.

    You can stay up to date with all of the World Cup news on our Rugby Union index here and we will be back tomorrow for live text coverage as Ireland look to get their campaign back on track after their shock defeat by hosts Japan.

    Until then...

  2. A Barrett hat-trick

    FT: New Zealand 63-0 Canada

    One...

    Jordie Barrett

    Two...

    Beauden Barrett

    Three...

    Scott Barrett

    What a day for the Barrett family as all three brothers scored tries for their country!

  3. 'Entertaining'

    FT: New Zealand 63-0 Canada

    New Zealand fly-half Richie Mo'unga said: "It was something we have been looking forward to after a long break, so to throw the ball about in an amazing stadium made it an entertaining game.

    "It was a good time to try things and experiment with some new moves. The ball was wet and it meant the backs could have some fun."

    On his 100% success rate from the tee: "I have been working on my kicks over the last few weeks so it's awesome."

  4. 'Double playmaker axis working well'

    FT: New Zealand 63-0 Canada

    Former New Zealand captain on BBC Radio 5 Live Sports Extra

    I thought that the Beauden Barratt- Richie Mo'unga axis worked well. They found holes everywhere and orchestrated things brilliantly. When they have go-forward ball that system of having two playmakers works brilliantly.

    Atunaisa Moli did superbly as well. For a loosehead to keep performing in these conditions for a full 80 minutes is superb.

  5. Now you see them, now you don't

    FT: New Zealand 63-0 Canada

    Ardie Savea became the first player in history to wear goggles in a World Cup match - but they didn't stay on for long...

  6. 'Awesome to be a part of'

    FT: New Zealand 63-0 Canada

    New Zealand captain Kieran Read said: "It was tough in the humidity under the roof but it was awesome to be a part of. We were dripping wet as soon as we started but it is something to work on as we know we will have those conditions later on [in the tournament].

    "There were positives in both halves but we made some mistakes too, so things to work on."

  7. 'Errors they won't be happy with'

    FT: New Zealand 63-0 Canada

    Tana Umaga

    Former New Zealand captain on BBC Radio 5 Live Sports Extra

    The All Blacks have made a lot of errors tonight that they won't be happy with, there were periods of the match when they took their foot off the accelerator.

    The way that the All Blacks could lift their tempo was a positive, but there were too many handling errors.

  8. Get Involved

    #bbcrugby

    Daniel: All Black attacking game is pretty limited on this evidence. Total reliance on try-scoring. Not a single drop goal or penalty kick.

  9. Full-time

    New Zealand 63-0 Canada

    Canada do put the ball in touch and that's that!

    So New Zealand have made it two wins from two by ruthlessly putting Canada to the sword.

    That is 16 consecutive World Cup wins. Can anyone stop them?

  10. Post update

    New Zealand 63-0 Canada

    The clock ticks into the red, but instead of putting it out of play, New Zealand are off with Beauden Barrett.

    The full-back looks certain to score as he eats up the ground before him...

    But he drops the ball forward with the line at his mercy. That was not in the script!

  11. Post update

    New Zealand 63-0 Canada

    This time they retain the ball but Peter Nelson's chip over the top is met by the onrushing Ben Smith.

    That is probably Canada's last chance to get on the scoreboard gone as we tick into the final minute.

  12. Post update

    New Zealand 63-0 Canada

    Both sides exchange possession as they opt to use the boot.

    But Canada have the penalty as New Zealand go in off their feet at the ruck and Peter Nelson prods the ball into touch.

    Canadian line-out coming.

  13. Post update

    New Zealand 63-0 Canada

    Canada go through the phases and they will have the line-out inside the All Black half.

    The red shirts trundle to the mark, clapped on by the crowd, but Kieran Read gets his mit to the ball to knock it backwards.

    Richie Mo'unga clears the ball and Canada will have the chance to run it back.

  14. Post update

    New Zealand 63-0 Canada

    Taylor Paris is walked off the field by the medical staff and Canada will have the scrum from deep inside their own half.

    They are out on their feet but can they get on the scoreboard in the final seven minutes?

  15. Post update

    New Zealand 63-0 Canada

    We are just having a brief pause in proceedings now as Taylor Paris receives attention from the Canadian physios.

    Ardie Savea

    Ardie Savea looks likes like the Black Panther or something!

  17. Replacement

    New Zealand 63-0 Canada

    The All Blacks make a triple change as Ardie Savea replaces Matt Todd, Codie Taylor comes on for Liam Coltman and Sam Whitelock takes the place of Patrick Tuipulotu.

  18. Post update

    New Zealand 63-0 Canada

    Ardie Savea is poised to make World Cup history by becoming the first player to wear protective goggles.

    The flanker is stripped and ready to enter the fray.

  19. Post update

    New Zealand 63-0 Canada

    Wallop!

    Finally something for Canadian fans to cheer as Matt Heaton steps up to smash his opposite number Matt Todd.

    The All Black flanker will feel that in the morning.

  20. Post update

    The All Blacks have definitely left their foot off the pedal in the past five minutes or so.
