England out beaten by New Zealand

17 Errors many unforced, summed up England’s day as the clinical Kiwi’s dump them out of the World Cup.

England fought hard but at the end of the day just could not contain the much more organised and skilful New Zealand side. Half time and thanks to a late rally it was only 16-10. The second half and although England played with more conviction the damage had been done and they went down to the final score of:
