If England had a scrum half they could be out of sight by now.

Clear contact with the man ahead of the ball carrier. Textbook penalty.
If that's the case you can milk a penalty of Smith every time he runs from the scrum he always leads the ball.

Been a high energy half. I fear England not got enough points.

If Retallick had have passed a second earlier it could be tied.
I'd expect the ABs to go into HT behind.

Youngs is f**king us so hard at the moment. Good start, but he's deteriorating by the second.

NZ cannot get any worse than this, England cannot get any better. Easy win in the end for the All Blacks.

Mistakes like that when we have an attacking platform is costing England the potential to win.

Poor decision making by AB's so far is not helping their cause, 22 dropout should have been long

Yep, but Engs defensive pressure has been pretty good.
We've not had enough phases through to get comfortable.

I can only imagine that when Youngs was, say, 11, someone took him aside and said
"look lad, why don't you try stopping, waiting until everyone is stood quite still, wait another breath and THEN fire it as hard as you can at his head or his ankles"

Yeah, there's a chance England could regret not converting those line breaks - they must have had 5 in the first 20 mins

The whole attacking long was just creeping up expecting him to pass it, but it took ages. The the whole shape off.

Goodhue attempting to counter ruck against Sinckler. 10/10 for the effort.
