New Zealand fight back from 15-0 down to edge out England

All Blacks centre Jack Goodhue joined the squad in London after recovering from glandular fever

Trailing 16-15, England thought they had snatched it when Underhill scored after a chargedown with four minutes to go, only for the TMO to rule out the score for an offside decision against Courtney Lawes.

But the All Blacks fought back by scoring 16 unanswered points with full-back Damian McKenzie's 39th-minute try supplemented by Beauden Barrett's conversion, and two penalties either side of a drop-goal - the fly-half's first in 71 Test matches.

It was the ideal start - Ashton's try came after just 115 seconds - and they dominated the majority of the first half; Underhill smashed one All Black into touch, Jonny May chased down a perfectly-weighted grubber to force Damian McKenzie into conceding a five metre scrum, then they stole a line-out and on it went, all in New Zealand territory.

Barrett's drop goal and another penalty edged the Kiwis ahead, and they duly closed out the win, leaving Read delighted with their resolve ahead of this weekend's Test against Ireland, the world's second-ranked team.

"I also liked the way Sam Underhill played", Dallaglio said.

While Jones was prepared to rattle a few cages on the officiating front, he was sticking to the party line yesterday when it came to his co-captain Dylan Hartley, reiterating that he was taken off at half-time against New Zealand because he was injured.

Jones was rightly proud of his team's effort and they will go into the next two tests against Japan and Australia on November 17 and 24 brimming with confidence.

Long range kick specialist Elliot Daly's penalty then set up a lineout just 10 metres from the New Zealand tryline. "He was in the half-back's pocket".

The game takes place this Saturday, with kick-off at 3-00pm. It loved us last week and didn't love us this week...

The 34-year-old has averaged a career-low 13.4 points per game, and that's not only because of his limited minutes. We're not playing well and we just gotta figure it out.


Reflecting on the match as a whole, former Australia and Japan coach Jones said: "We're obviously devastated".

In an ominous warning to England, Hansen has revealed that his world champions are looking to make a statement at Twickenham.

That result, allied to England's 12-11 win over South Africa in their opening November global, has calmed the fevered debate over Jones' future that erupted after a run of five straight defeats earlier this year.

"Sometimes the game loves you, sometime the game doesn't love you".

He added: "To be here and play a team like England is a great opportunity for a footy team and a footy player. We're excited about where we're going".

"There was no doubt [Lawes] is offside". Kyle Sinkler, Maro Itoje and Ben Te'o all made brilliant yards before the ball went wide to Ashton who went over in the corner thanks to the wet ground.

"I've said it a number of times, I don't comment on those decisions", Jones said. They've been together three months, we have been together three weeks. Five of England's last six defeats to New Zealand have been by no more than ten points so a narrow away victory looks the value bet.

"England were very, very good and we showed a lot of character in a hostile environment after being 15-0 down and in the weather conditions", said All Black coach Steve Hansen.

They are the best in the world and we will get a lot of reward for the work we've done.
