NZ getting a good roll on with their forwards. England struggling to contain them.

Taupau is a beast. Manly would be stupid to let him go to the Roosters.

A terrible set from England and a terrible kick from Tomkins.

That was a Ben Hunt special.

And now they have conceded a penalty. I think NZ will score here.

England starting to find some weaknesses in the NZ defence.

Why didn't Burgess look right? Lomax was right there in support.

England's defence has been quite good.

They have improved in that department over the past couple of years.

That was shit from Johnson.

They would have had another tackle up their sleeve. Set up for one more play. Instead he puts in a nothing grubber and England get the ball back and have won the game.

Looking at the replay, I really don't think a penalty try should have been awarded to England.

The foul play didn't stop him from scoring. He was going to be held up regardless. But I guess over there they crack down harder on those situations.

The second game will start in 4 hours at 12:30.

I'm expecting the Kiwis to be better, but I think England will win and wrap up the series. I just think they have shown a lot of improvement in the past couple of years and are a tougher side.

The one thing that will go in Kiwis favour though is that England are missing Widdop. Tomkins just isn't a half. They are missing that bit of direction that Widdop provides. They could also use his kicking game.
