Well done England. One of their best displays I ever seen and not one of the boring England teams of old. Would have liked ABs to have one but to lose to that team is not gutting at all. Is good for rugby and sport so good luck to them next week...

Congrats England plum.
The 12 point margin felt like it should have been more, England looked a different class tonight.

Still proud of The AB boys for hanging on.

I hope England win the world cup.
Class team. Also, too much focus on eddie imo, their players were immense.

Congratulations to the England team. A thoroughly deserved and impressive victory. No excuses from NZ fans. The England team outplayed us all over the park from start to finish.

Good luck in the final. I'll be supporting England.

Yeah it's tough to lose in a tight thriller but when you're comprehensively outplayed like that you almost accept it more easily. Eddie Jones masterclass. 2003 semi final all over again.

Looking at how many of the England lads are limping off the park you know just how bloody hard that was. I hope they've not played their final today.

The fact I'm so overjoyed only shows what a bar New Zealand set. Not just last week but constantly. It took a BIG performance to win and that's being celebrated so heavily due tot he fact it's New Zealand.

You learn a lot more from a game like this than a close defeat, in terms of tactics changes and player changes. Close defeats have the 'it was just the spin of the ball' excuse.

I feel the same. The ABs just didn’t turn up. All I can say is phenomenal work England.
Yes, England played well, far better than us, but in what world does that feel good, or even not so bad. fudge that for an abject joke.

Nah you were all over us. Usually if we are 13 points behind with 30 to go I think we can win, never felt like it today. England in total control and they took us to school on all facets of rugby. Congrats on a dominating performance.

I honestly don't feel that bad because rather thsn playing badly I felt England were just class tonight.

Well done and enjoy, and if its vs those dour saffas-please win the final!!!!

It took an all time performance from England and a New Zealand side not performing at their best for it to happen. Commiserations to the kiwis.

Good luck in the bronze playoff

Absolute class England. Things look a lot easier when you take time and space away from a good team. By far and away blew the ABs off the park.

Shag had planned for the rush defense for years but tonight showed even his dual playmakers couldnt deal with it.

All the best for next week

I always thought that the 2015 exit was an unfortunate accident but that this team had the potential to win the World Cup. That success started almost 8 years ago and I hope England are crowned next week because they are the past complete team with the ABs

I think the Kiwis didn't perform at their best because England put them under sk much pressure, they lost their rugby.

Huge congratulations to England. I don't remember a better forwards performance by anyone anywhere. So many outstanding individuals, though Itoji deservedly MOTM.

Bad luck to NZ to come up against that. In the end, the scoreline flattered them. Need more practice working with back foot ball.

Just too many big bastards (and all them with no little skill as well). Having smashed the AB's for 60 minutes, they then brought on the likes of Wilson, Kruis and Marler.

It'll take a hell of a team to stop them now.

Because we were just so farken bad it became a joke. Jinky little runs and glamour offloads while under the cosh in our own 22. It was like watching a bad 7s performance.
Gallows humour I can accept. Capitulation, no.

Partly true but their lineout wasn't performing to the required level even without England's interventions. They looked nervous and shell shocked but didn't respond

Cheers Kiwis. In hindsight England were well on top but it never felt comfortable watching and you could see how much it took out of the players. ABs still a class side.

Superb England. What a performance. English fans deserve to be proud of their team today and do a bit of gloating. Apart from the lineout overthrow it was as near to a perfect performance against the All Blacks as I can remember.

From a NZ point of view still proud of the boys they tried hard but they were not the match of England today but they have produced so many great moments you need the odd bad one to get a sense of balance.
