We take a look at some interesting facts ahead of New Zealand's encounter with England.

* Tony Woodcock's try in last weekend's 33-10 Test win over Wales was statistically significant: firstly because it was the 1700th try scored by an All Black in a Test match. Secondly, the try took the All Blacks beyond 13,000 points in Test rugby. Woodcock played in his 95th Test match for his 81st victory.
* The 18 points kicked by Aaron Cruden against Wales are his most in a Test match - heading his 17 from the previous week. Cruden has played in 19 Tests without defeat. No player in history has begun their career so well.
* The All Blacks have scored 47 tries so far in 2012, with the following in descending order: South Africa 23, France and Ireland 22, England and Wales 20 and Australia and Scotland 14.
