'No excuses' for Warburton

Wales hammered by All Blacks in third Test

Wales captain Sam Warburton admitted that New Zealand had been simply too good for his side in hammering the tourists 46-6 in Dunedin.

Following 39-21 and 36-22 victories, the All Blacks dismantled the Welsh in the third and final Test to cruise to an impressive series whitewash.

Wing Ben Smith and centre George Moala went over for New Zealand, with hooker Dane Coles and full-back Israel Dagg also grabbing scores for the hosts.

Beauden Barrett added 26 points - the out-half tagged on two tries, five conversions and a brace of penalties - as Steve Hansen's men battered their guests in Otago.

A clearly downbeat Warburton conceded that his troops had been outclassed by the home side.

"Everything is raw," the Cardiff Blues flanker told Sky Sports. "I am finding it hard to find the words and pick the positive aspects.

"If you look at the scoreboard, it tells the story.

"We can have no excuses about it being a long season. They were far better than us today - it is simple as that.

"New Zealand have been outstanding and deserve the win over the last three Tests.

"It was poor today. In the first half, our kick-chase was bad, our defence was not good enough, and we were making basic mistakes that you cannot get away with over here."

Wales's only points in Dunedin came from the boot of out-half Dan Biggar, who scored two penalties.
