Eddie Jones told his players to write their own Hollywood movie, but they came up with a classic love story.
England was centimeters away from a famous victory at Twickenham.
Sam Underhill thought he scored the winning try after 76 minutes, but referee Jerome Garces interrupted the merry celebrations to exclude the match-winning score.

Eventually the result went to the script. Make 84 victories in 94 Tests for the All Blacks under Steve Hansen, whose side stays on top of the tree.
The Kiwi's are still No. 1, even though they have been an hour behind and Jones's players will cling to the hope of defeat.

Twickenham had not seen so much intensity since the 2015 World Cup. England had never seen anything like this under Eddie Jones.
Sonny Bill Williams left the field with an injury, which seemed right, but his replacement, Ryan Crotty, made an impressive impression.
Determined to score before half-time, New Zealand launched a 23-phase attack and won a penalty for the posts.
Their decision to scrum instead of taking three points was arrogant, but Crotty had a hard line before McKenzie took a line to Barrett's inside shoulder to score the first Kiwi-try.
