New Zealanders scored half of the Barbarians' six tries in a 40-7 thumping of Fiji which leaves them unbeaten in a three-match programme in Europe.

The invitation side drew 31-31 with South Africa and dissected the Czech Republic 71-0 in Prague before another enterprising performance in Belfast on Friday.

Once again, Kiwis played a prominent role, with centre Matt Faddes and captain Andy Ellis crossing to take the Barbarians to 28-0 at halftime.

They continued to defy wet conditions after the break, with reserve back Richie Mo'unga scoring.

South African hooker Akker van der Merwe crossed twice while compatriot Robert du Preez landed five of six conversions.

Fiji have Tests against England and Japan in November.
