Marc Ellis ran in six tries as New Zealand routed Japan 145-17 in a World Cup pool match which broke eight tournament records.

Biggest score (145); most tries (21); biggest winning margin (128); most conversions (20); most points by an individual and most points on debut (45, Simon Culthane); most conversions by an individual (20, Culthane); most tries by an individual (six, Ellis).

The Japanese were blown away by the pace, power and precision of the All Blacks and the game often resembled a training session as they ran in tries from behind their own try line.
