The All Blacks and England have drawn 25-25 in New Zealand’s final Test of the year at Twickenham on Sunday morning.

The final result will disappoint the All Blacks who blew a 19-point lead in the last 10 minutes of their season.

In a penalty-ridden game, the All Blacks made the best possible start to the Test with two unanswered tries to Dalton Papali’i and Codie Taylor in the first 10 minutes,

New Zealand led 17-3 at half-time, with Reiko Ioane scoring their third try in the 50th minute.

England could not cross for a try until the final 10 minutes of the game but then scored three tries to level the scores.

A drop goal from Beuden Barrett with 10 minutes to go appeared to seal the victory for the visitors with a 25-6 lead, but England immediately hit back with their first try in the 71st minute, before Freddie Steward scored again two minutes later.

The All Blacks were also forced to play the game’s final minutes with 14 players after Barrett was yellow-carded for a professional foul while trying to prevent England’s first try.
