Lacked continuity/composure... i reckon.........thought the aussies looked good.......they might provide a stiffer challenge for the AB's next time out.
AB's need a better forward effort on saturday and all will be good.Wink

Yeah, looked good early in second half, passes started finding their mark and sticking. Look far better than England when we get going.
I'd like them to keep Ben Smith at fullback, start Barrett and put Dagg on wing in place of Jane who hasn't been playing well. If Read is fit move Kaino to blindside and start Read at 8.
My 2 cents.

Also, I thought the ball had to be grounded for a try?? Makes me wonder why McCaw's try wasn't awarded as he was the only one under it.

True. But I thought a ball had to travel back out of the hand as well to score a tryBig smile
Clear forward pass to NoNu so all square.
Ben Smith is good. Really good

My point was more that they reviewed it, the ref thought it was held up as did everyone else, but they still got it wrong.
We could pick over every mistake/miss in the game but for the TMO to make such a blatantly wrong decision is pretty poor. I'd be saying the same thing if it was the other way round.

pretty much agree there stonefish as would many I would think? last two test combined. I think for his massive work rate the most outstanding would be brodie retalic we may well have been 2 nil down if not for him.

Thought the Ab's were all over the poms in the second half and the final score flattered england at the end to a certain degree.

wonder how many more "get out of jail free" cards the blacks will need, our half back played like a school boy and thought nothing of it, 1 mistake yes but continued.....please.

when they tossed it about they did well but it appears in days gone by they are trying to rely on their fitness imho

All Blacks showed glimpses of form but are taking longer to gel than we are used to. By the same token this pommy team is far more competitive than the opposition we usually encounter during thiis part of the international season, and are gonna take some beating at World Cup time.

And this is not the full strength English team either. But in my opinion they are far better than the regulars

Last week they played their best in the second half.....yesterday they played their best in the first half.......That forward pass was a shocker but a very enjoyable game.....shame about the welsh.....I was gutted for them.....that armless tackle lost them the game......they just cant seem to pull the close ones off......The championship coming up in august will be very interesting this year.

I went to the game last night.  I'm ashamed to say it's the first All Black game I've been too since the 2nd test v the Boks in1981, - that's disgraceful I know, but TV these days makes it so easy.  Back in those days I was working at the game, but that's another story. 
Anyway back to last night - what a venue and atmosphere, the crowd is that close you may as well be on the track.  A  great first half performance, followed by a steady second half effort.  I sat in front of members of the English touring party, they were singing the praises of the NZ back three - who were clearly helped by some pretty average tactical kicking.  Bring on the Aussies on 16 August, and go the mighty Red and Black machine before that!!!!!!
