Match 10: All Whites thrash Tahiti 10-0

ADELAIDE, 4 June 2004: Bottom placed Tahiti has felt the backlash of the New Zealanders going down 10-0 in their worst ever international loss today at Marden Sports Complex.

The hapless Tahitians were never in the game as the All Whites looked to rectify their upset loss to Vanuatu on Wednesday. New Zealand led by five goals at the half in front of a paltry crowd of just over 100 people in cold, overcast conditions.

Brent Fisher and Vaughan Coveny each scored hat-tricks with captain Ryan Nelsen bagging a brace. Neil Jones and Duncan Oughton also got their names on the score-sheet
