All Blacks come back to beat England by 1 point

England could not hold on to their first half lead as the All Blacks scored three tries in the second half to win a test match 28-27 this afternoon (June 14).

With this comeback victory, the All Blacks win the three-test series with a game to spare.

Fullback Ben Smith, Julian Savea and Ma’a Nonu all crossed for the home side in the second spell after they had been 10-6 down at halftime.

Flyhalf Aaron Cruden slotted a conversion and two penalties, while his replacement Beauden Barrett added a conversion and a penalty for the home side, which now have an 16-match unbeaten streak.

Winger Marland Yarde, fullback Mike Brown and Chris Ashton scored tries for England, while Owen Farrell, who was sinbinned for a professional foul midway through the second half, slotted three conversions and two penalties.

The All Blacks are now unbeaten in 32 tests in New Zealand, a run stretching back almost five years and have won 28 of their 30 internationals since they clinched their second World Cup in 2011.
