England and New Zealand will face off at Twickenham in one of international rugby’s most eye-catching fixtures, where a pair of players will become Test captains.

England captain Owen Farrell and All Blacks lockdown Brodie Retallick will reach three international caps earned as the sides meet in a mouthwatering fall international match.

They have not faced each other since the unforgettable semi-final of the 2019 Rugby World Cup, arguably the high point of the Eddie Jones era. .

With the next World Cup on the horizon, both the hosts and Ian Foster’s All Blacks will want to put a mark on Rugby Headquarters, and this victory will go a long way towards rescuing a bumpy autumn for Jones and his friends.

Check out the latest action from the fall international fight between England and the All Blacks below:


England 0-7 New Zealand, 7 minutes

Here are the real red flags for England. Richie Mo’unga delivers a well-considered crossover to Caleb Clarke, who advances to England 22, taking comfort and a matador from Jack Nowell’s bull-like charge.

Marcus Smith makes a solid interception but New Zealand keeps the ball in play and England hits the door.

England 0-7 New Zealand, 6 minutes

Rather, it is very sharp, sent by telegraph from England and read from Papalii. He’s been excellent in the open in recent weeks and now he’s really pushing regular captain Sam Cane for the starting point.

All Blacks will feed a scrum after a hit to base.

TO TRY! England 0-7 NEW ZEALAND (Try Dalton Papali, 4 minutes)

He’s caught and Dalton will gallop off Papali!

A gift from England. Line-up shots are long over the 15-metre line and allow New Zealand’s defenses to advance. Papali’i sprints to snatch Jack van Poortvliet’s air pass, puts his foot on the ground and slides under the posts, giving him a perfect start to New Zealand.

England 0-0 New Zealand, 3 minutes

It’s a weary sigh from home fans as Jack van Poortvliet takes a relatively aimless box kick after England’s New Zealand half-court loss. Jordie Barrett collects and demands a sign.

England 0-0 New Zealand, 2 minutes

Scott Barrett was unable to clear the ball, but was able to clear Dalton Papali away from Codie Taylor’s first lineout shot.

Fast pla from New Zealand, both centers are in the foreground. Rieko Ioane takes the pass from Jordie Barrett and then juniors Barrett makes a halftime break.

Yet England regrouped and forced a hit, allowing Marcus Smith to have a long gap.

England 0-0 New Zealand, 1 minute

Maro Itoje is in good shape to take the kick-off with the blade.

Ellis Genge made an early statement of intent and outperformed Sam Whitelock after a long English leave, but the hosts were offside.

kickoff approaching

Frenchman Mathieu Raynal, who was called in earlier in the week after Nic Berry had to return to Australia for personal reasons, will oversee the events tonight. Brian MacNeice is TMO.

England is white, New Zealand is black. Richie Mo’unga will kick things off.

Twickenham begins a familiar refrain as the All Blacks team up for haka as they suppress New Zealand’s own challenge. British players throw their arms around their shoulders and form a united front. No formal shenanigans this time – just stares deep into the eyes of their opponents.

Two powerful renditions of the anthems, with a strong voice as Twickenham accentuates the final notes of “God Bless the King.”
