Because the England player in front - the one who the ball went forward into - was always in possession of the ball. It didn't leave his grasp, so how could it be knocked on?
correct, it's not salty to say it's a bad call.

I took it as a "forward pass".
As a neutral I thought it was a try

Those are tough ones because you naturally get an advantage by deceiving the defender.

NZ needs to accept they have to be the close in muscle side.

Are skills aren't holding up out wide and we are getting outpaced in the loose.

It would be prudent if we maintained possession, put together some good phases and maybe kicked for field position.

Kiwis playing as if they haven’t met. No challenge for high balls, no coordination at the breakdown.

NZ haven’t looked like scoring 3. Hold onto ball and target hobbling Farrell, but they can’t get good enough ball and are too mistake prone anyway.
