A hat-trick of Shaun Johnson tries helped New Zealand's rugby league team secure a 34-14 win against Tonga at Mt Smart Stadium on Saturday night.

Kiwi Coach Michael Maguire says their victory over Mate Ma'a Tonga shows they're back on track after losing to the same team at the World Cup two years ago.

Fans from both sides were eagerly anticipating the test.
