48th minute: Owens warns Read about the number of tackles off the ball and NZ high penalty count. Warns the next one will be a yellow.

NZ: Continue to do this, are not picked up on it and do not get a player binned.

The fact that Curry so blatantly obstructed the All Blacks defence towards Underhill's disallowed try, and Owens still tried to award it before the TMO intervened speaks volumes.

You mean the one that Owens requested the TMO look at because he wasn't sure if there was obstruction or not?

I'm loving furious. Let's just get this out of the way - England were the better team tonight. Let's state that, and move one, because none of what I'm about to post is intended to detract from that fundamental point.

The All Blacks played like poo poo when it mattered, and the referees let England get away with way, way, way too much. From the kick-off, the England defenders were consistently living offside, and as usual, no action was taken regarding a hit around Whitelock's throat just prior to him shoving Farrell, and his graceless dive. Slade's shoulder charge should have, at the very least, been a penalty and a yellow, and a potential penaltyi try situation. The fact that Curry so blatantly obstructed the All Blacks defence towards Underhill's disallowed try, and Owens still tried to award it before the TMO intervened speaks volumes.

England played better, and the All Blacks played like poo poo, but gently caress me, it was a 15 vs 16 situation at times.

Lol plus all their forward passes. I counted at least two.

Pissing on the ref is extremely un-rugby like (unless they are French refs, in which case its fair game). If you want to piss and moan about refereeing go watch football.

The officials favoured NZ all game, the only reason England didn't get 30+ points was NZ getting every close decision in their favour.

NZ never looked like scoring and only got any points on the board at all because England threw the ball to them 2 metres from their own try line.

Obviously England were inspired by my heartfelt support over the last few weeks, and pushed themselves to victory.
In all seriousness, it was a comprehensive win, if anything the scoreboard flattered the all Black's. They were second best in every part of the game.

especially since Nige is the best ref in the world by a long way

New Zealand can't have Gracas and his All Black erection ref every one of their games, and I like the idea that the team that had two tries disallowed was the one getting the benefit from the ref.

Since I've had a night to sleep on it and I'm a little less angry now, having moved on in the DABDA process, I suppose England just had one of those days where the little things just went there way, kind of like Ireland in Chicago back in 2016. There wouldn't have been many teams, if any, that could have won on that day.

It was frustrating to see the All Blacks unable to really fire a single shot, and I guess England never having to really reveal their hand worked in their favour.

Garces blatantly favours teams playing against the All Blacks, unless it's the Springboks for some reason.

my ideal was Japan beating South Africa last week, and even if they lose to Wales they would've made sure Japanese press attention was on the final weekend. And the way things went, it would've been Japan-New Zealand in the third place game!
