An awesome display all over the pitch by England. 

Indeed. However, their achievement still comes a long way second to Vale getting their game on and beating Oldham - in my sporting world anyway!!

Wonderful stuff, agreed.

Everyone gave 100% for the full 80 minutes and the forwards were immense. We've finally found a back row that can win the ball and turnover possession. Itoje gets better and better.

What a great try that was in the 1st minute! I haven't seen England play that well for many years but with everyone fit we do have a very good squad of players.

Absolutely awesome stuff from us.

So, so unlucky it wasn't a bigger margin.  Itoje absolutely collossal.

The start was absolutely incredible but I loved the way we strangled them out in the closing minutes.

Incredible display by England to beat the All Blacks full of skill, intensity and commitment. Some of the tackles by Sam Underhill were  shuddering and the performances by the likes of Itoje, Lawes, Manu Tuilagi etc were immense even to someone who doesn't follow the game much. Can't remember seeing such a fluid Rugby Union game in a long time.

There’s “history” between the two isn’t there ?

Maybe it’s the NZ/Australia rivalry creeping in, but Gatland and the Welsh in particular may have been better seeing how the final plays out before spouting out their “views”

Gatland says how fantastic the Welsh have done with their small population (2.9Mat last count). He should do well to remember that his own usually all conquering New Zealand has only 700k more !

South Africa will play for penalties.  As long as England stay disciplined and dont give them away, they shouldn't have too much trouble.

We are playing right into there game plan at the moment.
