Maori ABs beat US in Chicago rugby clash

AAP logoAAP 5/11/2016

Winger James Lowe and back-rower Akira Ioane have both scored two tries as the All Blacks Maori rugby team beat the US 54-7 in Chicago.

Lowe scored twice in the first half and Ioane touched down once in each half as the Maori won by eight tries to one to extend their record against the US to four wins from four games.

Both captains scored: Ash Dixon for the New Zealand Maori shortly before halftime and Todd Clever for the US whose only try came at the start of the second half.

Maori prop Kane Hames had a try disallowed in the first half but scored another in the second while replacement scrumhalf Brad Weber touched down before ending the game in the sin bin.

Substitute hooker Joe Royal added the last try near fulltime and Damian McKenzie, one of four touring All Blacks loaned to the Maori team for the match, converted from the sideline.
