England win the line-out! Another chance gone begging for the All Blacks as Lawes gets up and wins the line-out and England clear their lines.

Drop goal attempt! Off the back of the line-out, Ford attempts an ambitious drop goal, but it goes well wide.
The game slowing down a lot now as a result of the rapid start. There have been a few reset scrums and New Zealand will have another one on their 22m in the middle of the park.

Close! England get into the New Zealand 22m and there is an overlap before Reece intercepts it but his pass is then intercepted by Youngs and England win a penalty. They will have a line-out on the 5m.
Knock on! What a spot from the referee team as there is a slight knock on in the maul and the try is disallowed. New Zealand will resume with a scrum.

CONVERSION, NEW ZEALAND, MO'UNGA! 13-7: Good kick from the flyhalf and suddenly New Zealand are back in it.
So close from England. Jordie Barrett is turned in his 22m before he is tackled hard and loses the ball. England get up to the try line before Ford knocks it on as they try to go wide with a penalty advantage. They will have a shot at goal.
PENALTY, ENGLAND, FORD! 16-7: Another solid kick from the pivot and England extend their lead again. Less than 20 to go.

New Zealand trying everything they can to spark something. Savea tries to barge his way over a few players but England stand tall and Farrell is there to help drag him into touch.
