Recent game: All Blacks and England draw 25-25 at Twickenham

In the last Test of the year for New Zealand, the All Blacks and England drew 25–25 this morning at Twickenham. In the last ten minutes of their season, the All Blacks let a 19-point advantage slip away, forcing them to settle for a draw.

The All Blacks had the best possible start to the Test with two unanswered tries to Dalton Papali’i and Codie Taylor in the first ten minutes of the game, and they would not relinquish the lead until the very last minute of play in a penalty-filled contest.

In the last ten minutes of the match, England managed to score three tries to tie the score despite persistent attacks on the New Zealand line. At the half, New Zealand had a 17-3 lead thanks to a try from Reiko Ioane in the 50th minute.

With ten minutes remaining, Beuden Barrett’s drop goal looked to have sealed the match for the visitors, who now led 25–6. However, England quickly responded with their first try in the 71st minute, and two minutes later, Freddie Steward scored again.

After Barrett was sent off for a professional foul while attempting to stop England from scoring their first try, the All Blacks were also forced to play the last few minutes of the match with just 14 players, as the hosts crossed the line with one minute remaining to seal a draw.
