England beat All Blacks reach Rugby World Cup final in 12 years

England historic win over New Zealand 19-7 to reach Rugby World Cup 2019 final.






Now England is into its first Rugby World Cup final 2019 in 12 years after a brilliant demolition 19-7 of three-time world champions New Zealand.

 Eddie Jones's side had stormed into a 10-0 lead, Manu Tuilagi's second-minute try and a long-range penalty from George Ford fitting reward for a blistering first half.

 While the opening try after just 98 seconds is an obvious place to start, the genesis of it began before the game had even started.

 The finalists' first win over the All Blacks since 2012 was built on small margins, a brilliantly executed gameplan and an ability to adapt to setbacks such as Owen Farrell's injury.

England beat New Zealand for the first time since 2012, ending a six-game losing streak against the All Blacks, and for the first time at a World Cup after three previous defeats.

New Zealand lost a World Cup match for the first time since the 2007 quarter-final, having recorded an 18-game winning streak since that defeat.

England have reached the final for the fourth time - no side has reached that stage more often (level with New Zealand and Australia).

New Zealand were kept scoreless in the first half of a World Cup match for just the second time (the other versus Australia in the 1991 quarter-final) and for the first time in any Test match since their 2012 defeat by England.

England won 16 turnovers against New Zealand, the most by any side at this year's World Cup and England's joint-most in a match at the tournament, also winning 16 against Japan in 1987.

Maro Itoje won three turnovers in a match for the third time at the tournament - no other player has managed that more than once at this World Cup.

Sam Whitelock lost a World Cup match for the first time in his career - his 18-game winning run was the longest of any player in the tournament's history.

The All Blacks had not lost a World Cup game in 12 years and had won 15 of the past 16 games between the two nations.


Only once before have the All Blacks failed to score a point in the first half of a World Cup game, and not in 28 years.
