Burns knocks the PENALTY over!

It's a strong scrum from both teams. Read is put under pressure at the back and Ben Youngs disrupts the ball. England earn a penalty at the breakdown and opt to go for poles. He has no problem with distance but pulls it wide.


Burns takes the kickoff, it doesn't go ten metres. Scrum on the centre mark.


The All Blacks set up for the Hakka led by Liam Messam. They look fierce, the intensity burning in their eyes. England aren't phased though and they stare down their opposition.


It's a wet evening in Hamilton and the surface and ball will undoubtedly be slippery. The players take the field in front of a capacity crowd for their national anthems.


With all the changes that have been affected there are some interesting match-ups, particularly in the backline. Fekitoa, is facing off against Tuilagi in the centres. Flyer Julian Savea plays up against Saracens' Chris Ashton, who has much to prove.


England have also made some changes to their team from last week. Chris Ashton starts on the wing this week, with Manusamoa Tuilagi at centre. Burrell is on the bench for this game. But perhaps most notably Freddie Burns gains the starting berth in the number 10 jersey.


New Zealand are glad to have Kieran Read back in the side after his concussion problems have been solved. Malakai Fekitoa also gets his first start in an All Black jersey, combining with Nonu in the midfield


Welcome to live coverage of the third and final Test between the All Blacks and England from Hamilton. England have pushed New Zealand in both Tests so far, but they are still fighting to avoid a 'blackwash' so there is plenty for them to play for whilst the All Blacks can equal the record for most consecutive Test victories if they win this one.
