  • New Zealand looking for another late consolation score - credit to the world champs, they haven't given up. But replacement Victor Vito puts it down with the line at his mercy. The ref looks at his watch, and blows for full-time. England have beaten the mighty All Blacks! They'll remember this win for a very long time...

  • England are camped in the New Zealand 22 and Brown tries a drop-goal to rub further salt into the All Blacks wounds, but pulls it wide...

  • CONVERSION, NZ. Cruden makes no mistake with the extras. But the visitors still have a long way to go with the clock ticking down... 38-21!

  • TRY, NZ: Finally, New Zealand show some flashes of brilliance and some quick hands from Smith sees Savea over for his second try of the match. Though it could be too little too late...

  • YELLOW CARD, ENGLAND. England are back on the attack as they look for more late points. The ball is hoisted and Conard Smith is tackled in the air by replacement prop Mako Vunipola who is sin-binned for his efforts...

  • PENALTY, ENGLAND. England take it through the phases and New Zealand stray offside again so Burns puts another one over! 38-14!!!

  • Cruden kicks long but England run it back at them and they are just metres short again. A wayward pass misses Ashton and goes into touch. The All Blacks kick long again and Robshaw is there.

  • The All Blacks lose the restart forward as their horror match continues. England go to Barritt as they power towards the 22. Burns puts a great kick into touch in the corner, pushing New Zealand into their own 22.

  • PENALTY, ENGLAND. Burns gets stuck in straight away, and has a chance for his first Test points after the men in black are penalised on their own line. Over it goes! 35-14

  • Changes for New Zealand, and it's a big one: Carter is hauled off! On comes Aaron Cruden and Piri Weepu for Aaron Smith... Change for England too, as Farrell makes his way off the pitch to a standing ovation, and Freddie Burns takes his place at pivot.

  • CONVERSION, ENGLAND. This time Farrell finds his target and puts two more points on the board for his team. 32-14!

  • TRY, ENGLAND. The All Blacks need to be next to score and they try keep it in hand but Tuilagi latches on for the intercept and trots over for yet another try for the home side!!!!

  • Once again, Farrell can't add the extras... that was from bang in front too. 25-14!

  • TRY, ENGLAND. Now it's Tuilagi who busts up the middle! he has one man to beat, but unselfishly draws his man and passes to Chris Ashton who launches into the air with his trademark dive for England third touchdown! Amazing scenes here at HQ!

  • Farrell can't add the exras from far out... 20-14

  • TRY, ENGLAND. Now Barritt bursts into space! The centre has his midfield partner on the outside, draws Dagg and passes to Tuilagi who passes back inside and Barritt goes over for the try! Started and finished by the South African...

  • Aaron Smith puts a chip over the top for Jane to chase, but Brown takes easily. Chris Robshaw takes Brown's pass and charges forward - the England skipper leading from the front.

  • CONVERSION, NZ. It's another successful conversion from Carter who closes the gap to a point. What a fightback from the world champs... 15-14!

  • TRY, NEW ZEALAND. England's lead has been cut down even further after Jane puts the hosts on the backfoot once again with another dangerous run. He's not done yet though, and flips a pass to the supporting Read who runs in untouched for the All Blacks second try in two minutes!
