England will be looking to go one better than last week when they face the All Blacks in the second Test in Dunedin on Saturday.

The visitors came close to catching New Zealand out in the home team’s first Test of the year in Auckland, but a late Conrad Smith try saw the All Blacks secure a tense 25-20 victory at Eden Park. This means that both teams will be looking to launch a comeback of sorts heading into their second clash at the sheltered Forsyth-Barr Stadium.

Things are likely to be even tougher for England this time around, as the All Blacks have had another week together and will be intent on putting things right and asserting their dominance as the world’s best team.

Lancaster faced some pleasant selection headaches this week, with the players involved in the Premiership final available again and last weeks team having performed so well.

He decided to show faith in some of the players that served him well during the Six Nations, with flyhalf Owen Farrell entrusted with steering the ship once more.

    Should be interesting to see if England would be able to be better than last week with a few of their stars back in the lineup……

    England should have been further ahead….again we have a referee not willing to blow AB negative play and off the ball play….Peyper started off well and I thought for once we will have a referee who will stop them from playing illegally….

    Brenden Nel ‏@BrendenNel – Again the first time England infringes in 22 theres a card. Same rule doesnt apply to All Blacks.

    @Jacques(Bunny): Careful Bunny, you will be inviting all the conspiracy theory believers to blame an AB victory on the ref again.

    @out wide: Nope NZ plays brilliant rugby but so sick of referees have two sets of rules when it comes to AB

  28. avatar out wide says:

    By the way your observation that Peyper is missing cleanouts round the ruck as penalisable is wrong. Under current rules it is legal.

  29. avatar out wide says:
    June 14th, 2014 at 11:09 am

    There you are bunny – a ruling by the tmo well in favour of England if Brown didn’t ground the ball. Peyper can’t be blamed for that.

    England over the line…..

    TRY Awarded, same thing happens last week for SA but was not given…..again different rules apply…

    @out wide: You are not allowed to play a player of the ball or from the side!!!

  32. avatar Jacques(Bunny) says:
    June 14th, 2014 at 11:14 am

    @out wide: Peyper gave three penalties to England in the first half for same negative play and first time England does it in their 22 they get a yellow….Peyper is an idiot…..

    Patrick Tuipulotu has made his All Blacks Test debut

  35. avatar Jacques(Bunny) says:
    June 14th, 2014 at 11:18 am

    @out wide: He did not ask the correct question…..try no try the TMO had no choice. If he ask me a reason not to award the try the TMO would have said something else

    England score under the post……

    NEW ZEALAND 28 ENGLAND 27 after 80 min. Try converted by Owen Farrell for ENGLAND

    All Blacks done it again this time with only one point

  38. avatar out wide says:
    June 14th, 2014 at 11:22 am

    @Jacques(Bunny): Bunny, Peyper rightfully ruled against McCaw in one of those first 10 mins penalties for coming in from the side, Farrell was carded for making no attempt to roll away when he was blocking the ball from coming out in the red zone. Very different – I think you might be too harsh on Peyper who is one of the better refs around.

    Anyway well done England – going to be hard to beat at home in the next RWC
