All Black flyhalf Danier Carter has once again notched up 22 points as the home team marched on to defeat England 2-0 in the two test series in New Zealand, winning convincingly 44-12 on the night.
The game was physical as always and left plenty of casualties as players from both teams suffered in the injuries department. Most notable for New Zealand was the loss of key men Ali Williams and Richie McCaw, both with leg injuries.
Matthew Tait also left the field after taking a terrible knock from debutant centre Richard Kahui.
Kahui, a surprise selection for many, was highly successful in his first game in the black jersey, and contributed to an overall solid performance from the All Blacks who ran in five tries to Englands two.
We'll get clips and a full report up from the game in the next day or so, but for now, here's the Haka for those of you who enjoy watching it.
