From the BBC: "The All Blacks cut the world champions to pieces with a stunning first-half display before England fought back without reward after the interval.

Tries from Carlos Spencer, Doug Howlett and Joe Rokocoko helped the home side to a 30-3 half-time lead, a Charlie Hodgson penalty England's sole reply.

Daniel Carter kicked 21 points as the All Blacks cruised to a commanding win.

Henry's decision to beef up his pack was rewarded in spades with Jono Gibbes and Xavier Rush playing major roles alongside the outstanding Richie McCaw in a dominant back row.

England, by contrast, looked laboured and weary and will do well to do avoid a 2-0 series defeat in Auckland next Saturday."
