Tonga scrum-half Sililo Martens admitted his side's indiscipline contributed to the scale of their defeat by New Zealand.
Martens had few chances to shine
The South Seas Islanders conceded 15 penalties to gift the All Blacks a host of possession, which they used productively to run in 13 tries.
"We went out with a positive attitude, but we didn't have the muscle," Martens said.
"We tried our best and nothing came out of it.
"Nothing went our way with the referees from the start, and it went from there."
Tonga coach Jim Love felt his side paid for their debilitating schedule, playing their third game in nine days.
"The boys were pretty lethargic," he said. "We brought them up for the
Wales game but it was a struggle to bring them up for this one
"Even though it was the All Blacks and the boys were looking forward to it they just didn't have an edge and they played like that.
"We just haven't got the depth of players and it showed. There's a huge difference between professionals and amateurs."
