England and New Zealand played out a thrilling 25-25 draw at Twickenham on Saturday afternoon.
Eddie Jones’s side chased the lead for much of the game, with a graceful performance from Kiwi fly half Richie Mo’unga taking the All Blacks to an early 17–3 first half lead.
The story of the match, however, was England’s resilient comeback, with Freddie Stuart and Will Stuart colliding in two late tries to level the hosts.

Under fire defensively in the first half, but managed to plug some of the gaps, but nothing with his front foot.
13. Manu Tuilagi 5
Not a repeat of 2012. A couple of dents early in the second half before being substituted after 53 minutes.

12. Owen Farrell (captain) 100th England cap 5
An ankle injury late in the first half affected him, but he continued but failed to mark his 100th appearance for England.

England’s most threatening attacker, he searched for work and a couple of decent breaks, but blacked out.

He got on the wrong end of a scrum penalty decision which led to the Kiwis second try and no forward carries.

Part of an England scrum who marched back and out a couple of times.

5. Jonny Hill 5
Tougher day than against Japan last week and beaten by two greats in Retallick and Whitelock 5
He first started out as a blindside flanker and became involved in midfield and wings. Decent in strange position.
7.Tom Curry 5
A second-half turnover as England rallied briefly but quietly elsewhere. I’ve been out of color.
8. Billy Vunipola 5
I was asked to give up a promising England position and not head on like old Big Billy.
