New Zealand v England - Live

Last updated: 21st June 2014  

Full Time80 New Zealand 36-13 England

Conversion80 CONVERSION, NEW ZEALAND, BARRETT. 36-13. It's over.

TRY79 TRY, NEW ZEALAND, SAVEA. 34-13. 17 wins in a row from the All Blacks as Jane sets up Savea for his hat-trick. Too good this series and they win 3-0.

78 Second-row Retallick takes his leave, replaced by Patrick Tuipulotu. New Zealand penalty which goes into England's 22. Finish with a flourish? Maybe.

76 Morgan spills one and that sums up England's half - plenty of effort and guts but a mistake costs them.

75 Not straight from Mealamu on his own 22 so England get another opportunity, but the game's surely well gone now as they need three scores. Scrum coming up.

Yellow Card73 YELLOW CARD, NEW ZEALAND, CROCKETT. A team card for the hosts after too many offences and it's Crockett.

72 This one isn't fizzling out, far from it, as Yarde breaks again into the New Zealand 22. However, Nonu and Savea combine to get him into touch before Nonu takes a quick-line that leads to Barrett clearing.

69 Nothing comes of it and the hosts clear in the end.

68 England are banging on the door and showing plenty of hunger off the shoulder of scrum-half Youngs. Attacking line-out coming up then five metres out.

65 Life is made simple for the All Blacks as Lawes is offside at the breakdown so Barrett clears easily. Fekitoa and Woodcock now go off as Ryan Crotty and Wyatt Crockett replace them for the closing stages.

63 Scrum penalty against New Zealand allows England to launch something in the home side's 22. Yarde is up for this but Burrell fumbles soon after. NZ scrum.

60 Rob Webber and Danny Cipriani are on for England.

59 Lovely counter-attacking rugby from the All Blacks as Barrett runs from deep before Fekitoa adds his speed to matters. However, Nonu's inside ball to Highlander Fekitoa has gone forward. Scrum England.

56 Boy this game has opened up early, with England needing it to, but they do run the risk of New Zealand punishing them. All Black ball 20 out.

54 Boy this game has opened up early, with England needing it to, but they do run the risk of New Zealand punishing them. All Black ball 20 out.

51 What a kick from Nonu as he puts one behind the English defence that rolls into touch five out. Pressure line-out that England come through OK.

48 New Zealand reverse that put-in though as they have turned it 90 degrees through the strength of Franks. Barrett now clears to outside his own 22-metre line.

46 Youngs and Yarde again but this time the latter is held up over the line! Scrum five metres as the All Blacks replace pivot Cruden with Beauden Barrett.

45 New Zealand are now penalised for crossing on the halfway line so England kick to the corner, getting within ten metres. Another try here and who knows?

Conversion44 CONVERSION, ENGLAND, BURNS. 29-13. Two more points.

TRY43 TRY, ENGLAND, YARDE. 29-11. A response from the away side as Launchbury, Youngs and Tuilagi combine which allows Yarde to pick and score. Start of a comeback?

42 New Zealand have also made a change as Liam Messam comes on on his home patch, replacing Kieran Read.

41 Welcome back to this one-sided game and England have brought on Luther Burrell for Eastmond. They'll hope for a change in fortunes too in this series finale

Half Time40 New Zealand 29-6 England

38 England chance their arm and why wouldn't they as Youngs and Ashton go quickly in their own 22. But Ben Smith is back to recover the ball and then he coasts past Ashton to halfway. He's in great form.

Conversion35 CONVERSION, NEW ZEALAND, CRUDEN. 29-6. More points.

TRY34 TRY, NEW ZEALAND, A SMITH. 27-6. A fourth try here as Ben Smith offloads to his namesake. Outstanding.

33 New Zealand turn down three kickable points and go for a scrum fifteen out but that has backfired, as England win a turnover soon after. They're not out of the woods just yet though as back come the hosts.

31 Second-row Launchbury is back for England after he passes a concussion test, but one player still off is the carded Vunipola. What a half-hour from New Zealand as Hartley throws on his own 22-metre line.

Conversion29 CONVERSION, NEW ZEALAND, CRUDEN. 22-6. Great kick.

TRY28 TRY, NEW ZEALAND, A SMITH. 20-6. The All Blacks get another score after Jane slips inside Yarde before Smith finishes off on the right touchline. Simple.

26 That is what Fekitoa can do as he bursts through the English midfield after Brown was turned over on the halfway line. Fortunately for England they got back to win a breakdown penalty which Burns kicks clear.

24 Injury news to report and that is that England have lost Joe Launchbury to injury. Dave Attwood is on.

23 New Zealand are rampant and could have scored again after a short line-out saw Smith and Coles combine on the left wing. Luckily for England the hooker's final pass hit Ashton and went into touch five out.

Yellow Card22 YELLOW CARD, ENGLAND, VUNIPOLA. A high tackle from the England number eight on Cruden sees him go to the sin-bin. Meanwhile New Zealand kick to the 22.

Penalty21 PENALTY, ENGLAND, BURNS. 15-6. A clear offside from captain Richie McCaw at ruck time so up steps Burns from 40 metres out for what are critical points now.

Penalty18 PENALTY, NEW ZEALAND, CRUDEN. 15-3. A ruck offence from England leads to another three points for New Zealand. It came from an English line-out mistake though which is another concern for the visitors.

15 Savea is denied a hat-trick as a forward pass from Ben Smith is spotted by the referee. However, that is worrying for England as Cruden's sucking in the defenders. That should have been another try really.

13 Play is on halfway as both teams slip at scrum-time. The surface isn't the best after that recent shower.

Conversion11 CONVERSION, NEW ZEALAND, CRUDEN. 12-3. It is over and England need to plug a leak on the left wing.

TRY10 TRY, NEW ZEALAND, SAVEA. 10-3. Too easy. A looping pass out to Savea which he picks up off his toes before stepping inside for the run in. Top finish.

Penalty8 PENALTY, ENGLAND, BURNS. 5-3. Scrum-half Smith is now offside at the ruck so it's a chance for Burns to get off the mark. Should be simple and it is.

7 Yet another mistake, this time Aaron Smith kicks out on the full, so it's now an English line-out 20 out.

6 Cruden's conversion hits the post. It remains 5-0.

TRY5 TRY, NEW ZEALAND, SAVEA. 5-0. Numbers on the left and Savea is sent over by Ben Smith. Easy finish.

4 There's a pattern developing here as now Mike Brown kicks straight out after taking the ball back into his own 22. New Zealand ball now in a good position.

3 Mistake from Read now as he's pressurised by Youngs at the base before New Zealand go offside. Up steps Burns from 45 metres out but bang in front...wide.

1 Here we go then with Burns kicking off to his left. It's not gone ten metres. Nightmare start from him.

0 The anthems and haka are complete so it is almost time for kick-off. Black or white? Let's find out.

0 There has been a recent shower in Hamilton which should make the ball and surface a bit slippery.

0 The All Blacks have Kieran Read back in their side while Malakai Fekitoa is given his starting debut. England meanwhile have made big changes as Freddie Burns, Ben Youngs, Kyle Eastmond and Chris Ashton come into the back-line. Billy Vunipola, Courtney Lawes and Dylan Hartley return to the forward pack.

0 Hello and welcome to our coverage of the third and final Test between New Zealand and England. Hamilton is the venue today as the English look to end this series with a victory at a sold-out Waikato Stadium.
