Strange match in many ways, England had 62% of possession and made only 87 tackles versus 152 by NZ in the match. This probably reflects the dominance of the English pack, but England still don't really seem to know what to do with ball in hand. »

I was there, was great! The wasps backrow were mighty, completely outplayed the quins and that messed up their attacking play. It also meant that they had lots of opportunities to counter and wade was no match for lowe (he is a centre after all).
