England denied victory by All Black comeback

"Debate has also raged as to whether Lawes was offside but World Rugby believes he was at the moment Perenara lifted the ball", The Guardian reports.

Jones said: "I don't comment on those decisions".

My main focus is physicality, carrying ball and defence, but I work hard at my lineout, he said. We are prepared to stay in the fight so we'll get some love from the game further down the track'.

Steve Hansen, the New Zealand head coach, said Shields was in for an "emotional" time on Saturday. He's just a really good, safe, confident outlet for Barrett and he always makes the right decisions.

"I don't know. I don't think so".

"I wasn't watching the screen". It looked an ambitious decision but paid off when Barrett's pop pass sent McKenzie over under the posts. "When it got brought back it was what it was but it's those small margins".

World Rugby has shared their stance on the contentious offside call made in yesterday's Armistice Day Test between the All Blacks and England at Twickenham. "With the tough-tackling Sam Underhill also poised for a recall, Eddie Jones is set to name an England side on Thursday created to rattle the world champions at Twickenham".

England had the chance to extend their lead nearly straight away but twice they turned down a shot at goal and went for the corner, only to be denied by the All Blacks defence. Not just for now, but for the Rugby World Cup in Japan next September and October. At 15-13 up and with the clock going down, we had a chance of adding the points to go 18-13 up. Whenever we play them we will feel like we have a game to take to them. Jones called on his players to act as movie directors rather than extras in the 41st instalment of the fixture and they did exactly that in the first half.

Lawes could extend his unbeaten streak against New Zealand to three games on Saturday, having featured in that Lions win in Wellington and also the drawn third Test.

"The other ones whenever they have gone out, they have done a really good job".

As for his own experience of coaching Wales against New Zealand, Hansen said: "It wasn't that pleasant because we got thumped".

"There is no secret to beating New Zealand - you have to take them on and put them under pressure. If we do that, we're on the road to being the best team in the world, which is what we set out to be".

"The next time we play them it might be a different story".

"If we'd kept going for another five minutes, we maybe would've got them".

The Leicester midfielder, whose career has been blighted by injuries, had been due to make his first England appearance in more than two years during last Saturday's 12-11 win over South Africa at Twickenham before a minor groin strain ruled him out of a place on the bench.

Jones joked that he will take comfort in defeat from the company of his dog, a Papillon named Annie who frequently escapes on to the training pitch at the squad's Surrey base.

Asked if he would like to face England more often, Hansen replied: "As long as it doesn't create more logjams in the calendar". And we're happy to go out there and get stuck into them.

Scrumhalf Ben Youngs' floated cut-out pass then found Ashton who, taking advantage of some inexplicably slack marking, used the wet turf to slide in at the right corner.

Hansen, though, had words of praise for his side too.
