Dagg dazzled for All Blacks

Israel Dagg impressed on the right wing for the All Blacks in Wellington on Saturday, according to SARugbymag.co.za's Opta-powered stats.

Dagg, who started at fullback in Sydney last weekend, scored two tries for the hosts at Westpac Stadium within the first 21 minutes of the match, being put away by Anton Lienert-Brown and then Beauden Barrett.

He also played an important role in the All Blacks' third try when he leaped into the air to reclaim possession from Aaron Smith's box kick. 

Dagg, who played the full 80 minutes, finished with 23 running metres from five carries, collected five kicks, and made four tackles without missing any.
