    Good start but they’re so quick to pounce on our mistakes.

    The line out looks like it’s going to be a real competition, the AB’s are going after us there.

    A couple of England drop goals would be nice at the moment. Thought we were going to get one at about 4 min.

    Bah he said play on

    England need to stay positive here, starting to kick more rather than keep doing whats working.

    Be interesting to see the possession and territory stats

    I hope Wales come out playing their A game like England are here. The next score will be huge.

    10-0

    epic game

    Can Wales play NZ in the final instead, please?

    Wow !!

    More nervous then ever now!

    England probably disappointed to only be 10 nil up.

    New Zealand very glad for the break and relived to be only 10 down.

    Hopefully the rain holds off and doesn’t spoil a potentially great second half

    40 more minutes like that please. NZ hardly been in Eng 22. Line outs lost, under pressure at the scrum, under pressure virtually everywhere else. Only criticism of Eng? Few sloppy handling errors

    Gooooo on England!!

    I can’t actually sit back and enjoy this…it’s so tense.

    NZ do look rattled but I’m just waiting for them to come back with a sucker punch that kills us. Curry and Underhill have been good at the breakdown and Itoje has been a pain in the bum.

    likewise.  But I’m not daring to dream – the AB’s have a habit of scoring big in the second half.  We need another try at least.

    Farrell’s injury could be a real problem here.

    It’s been a great first half for a neutral, albeit England supporter today. Several England players having a great game. Nigel too.

    50:50 now?

    Good 40 mins but a long, long way to go.

    I still don’t expect England to win, but at least they’ve turned up.

    Itoje has been the best player on the pitch.

    NZ have put no pressure on us at all so far. Unless that changes – we’ll be in the final.

    Harsh.
    Two disallowed tries, missed penalty, missed drop goal.

    I think that’s a poor call

    First one was correct but I think that wasn’t. Did Jamie George ever let go of it?

    Worse still, my wife has now got up and won’t stop wittering on about something.

    I think that’s a poor call

    Me too. It may be correct, but it’s nonsense.

    England play so well when their tails are up.

    It’s the right call, before var both would be tries.
