It's 24-7 at the moment.

Anyone remember the way the Maoris played at the Stoop last year? They played as though their lives* depended on it. These guys are the same.

* It isn't their lives they are playing for, it's their AB career! Same thing!

To be fair to England, they have done fantastic to get this far. 5 players missing due England senior tour, and then injuries have killed them in this tournament, I think I am right in saying they have lost another 4 during the tournament!!

It's 40-7 at half time.

Only worth watching if you are a masochist or a New Zealander.

Embarrassing is harsh considering the players missing. These are still only young lads. Quite a few are still eligible for next tournament. In contrast the kiwis have a bloke who played against the Lions 2 weeks ago!!! Always going to be tough.

Having watched all the previous games, our lads have shown massive commitment and fight, especially the semi against a beast of a Boks team

It's not England players fault we have withdrawn too many players to go elsewhere and our boys need to eat more Weetabix.

I think its been quite noticeable in the tournament that our pack have looked smaller/under powered in games. A couple of times I think it has just been true grit and stubbornness that got them through. As Flatman just said, 2 years is a big gap at this age. I expect many of these to be back (bigger) next year!!!

I don't think adding missing players would have made too much difference. NZ were in a completely different league.

He is pretty unreal. And he can throw in well too!

I don't think we have a hope of signing their hooker. He's too good and will surely be a senior Allblack . They were thoroughly ruthless and punished any little mistake. On the up side it was good to see us in the final again.

I'm not sure Rieko Ioane was still eligible to play. Jordie Barrett was though.

And no.. you can't have Asafo Aumua or any of our young players. Feel free to take Liam Messam or George Moala.
