Samoan winger Nanai touched down twice inside five first-half minutes to add to James Parsons' early try.

Fly-half Ihaia West kicked three conversions and a penalty for the New Zealanders, while Billy Guyton and Tevita Li added further tries as the Blues recorded a third consecutive victory.

Tries from James Hall and Edgard Marutlulle kept the South Africans in contention but, despite Elgar Watts and Jurgen Visser registering six points with the boot, they were well beaten in Port Elizabeth.
