REPORT ON GAME - New Zealand beat Samoa 25-16 in a historic Test at Apia Park on Wednesday, the first time New Zealand have played on Samoan soil.

Fly-half Dan Carter kicked six penalties and converted George Moala's try to secure the victory. Samoa's points came from a try by Alafoti Faosiliva, converted by Tim Nanai Williams, and three penalties by Tusi Pisi.

The All Blacks had scored 50 or more points in four of their five previous games against Samoa, including a 101-14 thumping in their most recent match in New Plymouth in 2008.

The home side, however, capitalised on New Zealand's typical slow start to a Test season, with the All Blacks combinations appearing rusty and timing off kilter.

New Zealand's work at the back of the breakdown was also sloppy while the delay in delivery allowed the Samoan defence to put pressure on the first-up runners, midfield and outside backs and not give them any time to attack.

Despite creating numerous chances in the first half, Carter kept the scoreboard ticking as he slotted four penalty goals, while Pisi landed a long-range shot.

Moala scored his try when he latched on to Carter's kick in the 46th minute, giving his side a 16-point advantage before Pisi brought the hosts back into the game with two successful penalties.

The All Blacks' pack then exerted pressure on the Samoan scrum, causing it to collapse and allowing Carter an opportunity to extend the lead with a 50-metre penalty.

Fa'osiliva's try, however, brought the capacity crowd of 8,104 into the match and it was not until another poor scrum earned another New Zealand penalty, which Carter slotted with five minutes remaining, that the visitors could feel safe.

"I'm not sure words can justify the type of match it was," All Blacks captain Richie McCaw said in a pitchside interview.

"I will say to the Manu Samoa team, the way you played that's what true Test match rugby is all about and we said before we came that was what we'd get.

"And that's what you boys did."

Samoa winger Alesana Tuilagi lamented the narrow loss but was pleased the All Blacks had finally made the trip to play their first test in the Pacific Islands.

"Thanks to Richie McCaw and the number one team in the world," Tuilagi said.

"I hope this is the start of a campaign where you come back. And we try again. And again. And again."
