Courtney Lawes says England have what it takes to beat New Zealand

  • WOKING ENGLAND- NOVEMBER 07 Joe Moody of the All Blacks with an injury to his eye suffered during training during a New Zealand All Blacks visit to the Mc Laren Technology Centre

Youngs nearly dummied his way over from an attacking scrum as play swung to the opposite and New Zealand took the lead for the first time in the 60th minute through a Barrett penalty.

NEW ZEALAND 16 (Damian McKenzie try; Beauden Barrett 2 pen, drop goal, con) ENGLAND 15 (Chris Ashton, Dylan Hartley tries; Owen Farrell drop goal, con) at Twickenham.

But French referee Jerome Garces, after consulting South African television match official Marius Jonker, decided Lawes had been marginally offside and disallowed the score to the dismay of a capacity Twickenham crowd of over 82 000. Then you realise "we can be in this", but by then it's too late. "We're going to be absolutely ruthless".

"In fact, we finished stronger". They've been together three months, we have been together three weeks. "We're used to it, we're expected to win every time we go out there, but we embrace it as a team and walk towards it as a team".

Overall, though, it was an excellent display by England, missing several first-choice players due to injury, and Dallaglio was impressed.

"We've got natural athletes who want to run and carry the ball and pass the ball and have terrific instincts and want to play what's in front of them", he said.

"They've had a few close games recently".

The Haka, a Maori challenge, has long formed part of the pre kick-off routine of New Zealand, the reigning world champions.

- Ten players in the England team reached double figures for tackles, with Sam Underhill and Maro Itoje making 20 apiece.

"You can either make the movie or be in the movie, and we want to make the movie", said the Australian, whose victory over South Africa as Japan coach at the 2015 World Cup is being made into a film called The Brighton Miracle.

All Blacks coach Steve Hansen had raised expectations by declaring the match to be bigger than last year's series against the British and Irish Lions, but an arm wrestle of a contest failed to provide quite the same drama.

"There's no doubt he was off-side, just about in the halfback's back pocket", Hansen said.

"What was going through my mind was are they (the officials) going to be fearless enough to make the right decision?" They're comeback kings, but they're in a good place.

"We're getting a lot of experience and I think we are on track for the World Cup".

England's next match is against Japan at Twickenham.

But neither side shone from an attacking point of view in what was a true defensive slugfest, albeit intense, at Cardiff's Principality Stadium where there was little reward for all the hard-hitting hustle and bustle. "If they're not fired up, they won't be there", Jones said.

But they pulled back to within five points just before halftime and edged clear soon after and, helped by a key, late TMO decision that cancelled out what England thought was a match-winning try, made it 15 wins in the teams' last 16 meetings.

Jones joked that he will take comfort in defeat from the company of his dog, a Papillon named Annie who frequently escapes on to the training pitch at the squad's Surrey base.
