England brilliantly takes a comfortable seat at the Rugby World Cup final, a fit they never reached in the past 12 years after an undisputed dissolution of All Blacks of New Zealand; three-time rugby world champions.
The British squad had stormed into a 10-0 ahead, Manu Tuilagi’s second-minute try and a long-range penalty from George Ford fitting reward for a blistering first half.
England who won the 2003 title could have been out of control had tries for Sam Underhill and Ben Youngs not been cancelled by the video referee. When Ardie Savea pounced on a wayward line-out throw to reduce the deficit to 13-7 All Blacks were on the charge.
Even with that the superb Ford landed a trio of nerveless penalties and with the young dynamos Underhill and Tom Curry maintaining strongly the back row England held on in a brilliant output to drive home one of their greatest victories that have proved futile in the last twelve years.
New Zealand All Blacks has kept a very sound record of not losing a World Cup game in the past 12 years and had also won 15 of the past 16 matches between the two nations.
Nevertheless, England who left the past world cup competition at the group stage came reinforced enough to strip the All Blacks of their royal garment to reach the world cup final.
