Debutant winger Julian Savea scored a hat-trick to inspire New Zealand to an impressive 42-10 win over Ireland at Eden Park on Saturday.
The Irish had no answer for the pace and power of world champions' backline and the Hurricanes winger ran in three tries inside the first 43 minutes of his first international.
The running lines and swift incisions of Israel Dagg, Conrad Smith and Savea caused Ireland problems throughout and coach Declan Kidney will need to come up with a way of negating the dangerous New Zealand backs if Ireland are to avoid a series sweep.
Ireland's start was bright, but they lost possession off their own scrum with three minutes on the clock and conceded a penalty seconds later which Dan Carter sent over.
The All Blacks went off their feet two minutes later and Jonathan Sexton levelled matters.
But from there on it was largely one-way traffic on the scoring front, with Carter kicking two penalties before converting the first of Savea's debut tries.
A couple of minutes before the break, Savea went over for his second after Dagg ran a great line, with Carter again adding the extras to make it 23-3 at the break.
Any thoughts of an unlikely Irish comeback were extinguished within three minutes of the restart as Dagg and Savea combined again. The All Black 15 twisted and turned before popping up a pass for Savea to get his hat-trick. Carter got his third conversion to make it 30-3.
All the attacks were coming down Fergus McFadden's flank but the right winger got some relief as Rory Best scrambled for possession and Sexton hoofed the ball upfield. The Leinster man beat Richie McCaw in a foot race to touch down and Sexton's conversion made it 30-10.
The relief was short-lived as New Zealand's strong ruck sucked in Irish defenders but not enough to stop Adam Thomson from crashing over.
And as the clock ticked down, Smith was then rewarded for a fantastic performance when he dived over to the right of the posts. Carter added the extras to make it 42-10 and give the Irish plenty to ponder.
Ireland captain Brian O'Driscoll said: "They are definitely one of the best teams in the world on turnover football. They made us pay a couple of times.
"It was a considerable step up from the provincial stuff. Test match rugby is a different level and I think they bring a good intensity and tempo to it. They try to keep the ball in play as much as possible and back themselves.
"For some of their scores we didn't help ourselves but they definitely created a few themselves too. I don't know whether it was a 32-point game but they were considerable, worthy winners."
All Blacks counterpart McCaw said: "The Irish put a lot of heat on the breakdown and we had a lot of ball carriers taken down too early.
"If we get that right and get good, quick ball next week then we can put more pressure on. We can step it up again."
New head coach Steve Hansen added: "There were a couple of tries we blew and there are other areas we will be looking to improve on."
"We started this week with a goal to have a performance we could be proud of and I think we have done that."
