80

England show more endeavour to try to close the gap but Billy Twelvetrees knocks on just behind the half way line to put a stop to their charge and the game. It's FULL TIME at Twickenham. England can be proud of their efforts which saw them bossing the game for a period and leading with just 20 minutes to go. New Zealand were too good, however, and after their lighting start, they showed their class in the final quarter of the match to pull away and keep their unbeaten record in 2013 intact. Stay with us for more LIVE action as Ireland host Australia next.

78

The All Blacks are looking threatening again and are doing a good job of pinning England inside their own half as the clock winds down

77

England are showing great adventure with ball in hand as they try to break out from their own half but they can't breach the All Blacks sturdy defence and the visitors hold them up and win a scrum

74

New Zealand have great possession in England's half as they look to kill off the game but the home team's defence hold firm as they force a Ben Smith knock on

71

PENALTY - Aaron Cruden extends the lead to eight

70

Sam Whitelock steals an England lineout now as the World Champions are continue to reassert their dominance. Now the All Blacks win a penalty at the breakdown as England are under increasing pressure

67

Ben Youngs is charged down now as the All Blacks exert more pressure onto their hosts. Vital moments in the match now as the final 10 minutes approach

65

CONVERSION - Aaron Cruden adds the extra two points

64

TRY - And they do strike back! The All Blacks work the ball from side to side at pace before Ma'a Nonu unleashes a superb offload in the tackle to free Julian Savea, and the winger scores his second try of the game

63

Ben Morgan rips the ball from Liam Messam in the tackle deep inside England territory to relief some pressure as the All Blacks look to strike back

60

PENALTY - Owen Farrell puts England into the lead

59

More good work from England as they batter away at the All Blacks inside their 22. Eventually Richie McCaw can't help himself and puts his hands into the ruck to give away a penalty. Owen Farrell will kick at goal

58

Now New Zealand look dangerous but England's defence is up to it and force the All Blacks to hold on

56

All the momentum is with the hosts now and they look menacing putting together phase after phase. Into the All Blacks 22 now before Courtney Lawes goes off his feet at a ruck and the All Blacks can breathe again

53

PENALTY - Owen Farrell makes use of the chance to cut the lead to one

52

New Zealand break out from their own half and look dangerous before Chris Ashton intercepts and grubbers though but Wyatt Crockett gets in his way and knocks him over. Penalty to England

50

Aaron Cruden hits the post and Billy Twelvetrees carries it up strongly before England clear

49

Ma'a Nonu is charged down by Dylan Hartley, but it falls for New Zealand who then surge up the field and earn a penalty about 20m out on the sidelines. Aaron Cruden will have a kick at goal

46

Again England keep the ball for a long period in the All Blacks half, as they keep building momentum. Nothing comes of it after 12 phases though as Chris Ashton puts in a grubber kick but only manages to give it back to the visitors

43

Kieran Read is back from the sin bin

42

England start the second period with determination but they knock on just inside the All Blacks 22. Wyatt Crockett has replaced Tony Woodcock who has a hamstring injury

41

Owen Farrell gets us underway for the second half!

40

England have been enjoying lots of the ball and are now starting to use the width of the field nicely as they build the phases. It comes to nothing however, as Dylan Hartley is penalised for sealing off and New Zealand kick it out for HALF TIME! The All Blacks started the game with huge pace and intensity as they raced to an early 17-3 lead, but the hosts have got a grip on the match now and are right in the game at the break. Join us in 10 minutes for the second half!

38

PENALTY - Owen Farrell cuts the lead to 4 points

34

PENALTY - Owen Farrell has no trouble with the penalty from handy to the posts

PENALTY - it's a great kick from Cruden and the All Blacks extend their lead to 10

31

Billy Twelvetrees is penalised for being in front of the kicker and Aaron Cruden will have a shot at goal from about 40m out

27

What a shame! Dan Carter is injured and has to be replaced by Aaron Cruden. Carter makes his way off after being unable to move freely in recent minutes

26

CONVERSION - Owen Farrell is successful with the conversion

25

TRY - It's all very messy from that scrum as first there is an accidental kick ahead from Tom Wood, then Kieran Read knocks on the ball on before it dribbles to Joe Launchbury who dots it down

24

No try - the maul goes to ground before the line, and there is another surge but there is no clear evidence of the ball grounded over the line. Another scrum

23

England maul it up and it collapses over the tryline. We're going to the TMO to check if the ball was grounded

22

The penalties continue as England keep pressing on the All Blacks line. Another lineout

20

England win a penalty at the kick off for obstruction from Tony Woodcock - they kick for the corner. New Zealand infringe at the maul and it's another penalty

18

CONVERSION - Daniel Carter adds the tricky sideline conversion

17

TRY - Ben Franks must a clean linebreak in midfield, the ball is recycled and spread down the line to Israel Dagg who puts Kieran Read away in the corner. Great try

16

Dan Carter is causing all sorts of trouble for England's defensive with his kicking game. A little chip for Ben Smith splits the hosts open but a knock on comes to stop the charge

15

England put together 8 phases but are thwarted in the All Blacks 22 as Charles Piutau is the 'arriving player' and forces a penalty for holding on.

13

PENALTY - no problem for Dan Carter and the Test centurion adds 3 points

12

The All Blacks put Lee Dickson under huge pressure at England's scrum and force a turnover. The home side stray offiside and Dan Carter will have a shot at goal from in front

9

A beautiful Dan Carter cross kick finds Charles Piatua as the visitors build phase after phase. England's defence is getting a workout. Finally they manage to hold up the All Blacks and win a scrum in their own 22

7

PENALTY - Owen Farrell completes the penalty from in front of the poles

6

After a strong run from Billy Twelvetrees, the All Blacks infringe at the ruck. Penalty to England

-20

The All Blacks will be looking to gain revenge for the 2012 loss and have made one change from last week's 26-19 win over France with Julian Savea replacing Cory Jane

-22

The overall head-to-head is less promising for today's hosts. In 35 meetings New Zealand have been victorious on 27 occasions, with England winning 7 times and one draw

-25

England are the only side to have beaten the All Blacks since they won the 2011 Rugby World Cup on home soil - when the 2003 World Champions won 38-21 at this venue last year.

-27

It's a lovely sunny day in London today - great conditions for running rugby.
