All Blacks beat England

1:35 pm on 7 November 2010

The All Blacks have beaten England 26-16 in their rugby international at Twickenham.

New Zealand set about their Grand Slam tour in customary fashion, getting on top of England early and then holding on through some stout defence.

Hosea Gear and Kieren Read scored early as the All Blacks leds 17-3 at half-time.

England looked to attack and scored a try just after the break and closed to 23-16.

However, New Zealand defended superbly especially with only 14 men for the last 10 minutes when Jerome Kaino was sinbinned, and secured their ninth successive victory over England to set them up for another clean sweep of wins over the home unions.
