PostSubject: England beat the All Blacks   Sat Dec 01, 2012 9:23 pm

England 38-21 New Zealand[size=150:3ekggliu]

England pulled off one of the great victories in their history as they destroyed world champions New Zealand at a rejoicing Twickenham.
The All Blacks had been unbeaten in 20 matches but were completely outplayed as second-half tries from Brad Barritt, Chris Ashton and Manu Tuilagi snuffed out a brief comeback.
Three penalties and a drop-goal from Owen Farrell gave England a 15-0 lead after 42 minutes, only for tries from Julian Savea and Kieran Read to make it 15-14.
Match analysis by Matt Dawson a Former England rugby international and 5 live pundit said: "
I can see this being maybe the greatest England victory, ever, at Twickenham. Nothing is springing to mind where they have annihilated the world's best team as they have today. "
England harried, hounded and were just relentless. They said to New Zealand 'we will tackle you wherever you go and then we'll pinch the ball and see if we can live off scraps'. New Zealand cracked.

"
I think I have been to every single England game at Twickenham since I was 14. This was by far the best game I've seen. It's the best performance by an England side considering the opposition and considering what this team has been through, particularly over the last two weeks. Absolutely magnificent - it was an absolutely astonishing performance to win by 17 points."


But there was no denying a hugely impressive England, who secured their first win over the All Blacks in nine years - only their seventh in history.

Stuart Lancaster's men were superior in every department;
their scrum excellent, their breakdown immense and their defence relentless.

A late try from Savea was barely a consolation for the visitors, the final margin of 17 points a new record for the men in white.

Congratulations to the English team, a wonderful result.

I try not to be sexist willow but didn't know the women were playing as well. From me and Annette hearty congratulations to the Women's team, New Zealand must be licking their wounds this morning. As for seeing the matches it's bad enough over here to view the English Rugby Union let alone the Women's one as well!! BG is no different to most other countries where football rules the waves and anything else is not worth watching.

STOP PRESS: I have seen the Dagenham Girl Pipers playing the Bagpipes and they make a good job of that as well, it's not easy for men to play them, let alone women.
