All Blacks vs England: Your match analysis

All Blacks need several changes made All Blacks brushing off the first test rust We wrote England off at our peril Four questions re the All Blacks' first test All Blacks scary? Tee hee hee Poor selection hinders All Blacks

So Andrew Mehrtens and Taine Randell, after your amusing, but slightly small-minded pre-match analysis earlier in the week, England got whacked in the first test then aye?

Arrogant England disrespect the All Black brand aye?

The All Blacks will no doubt iron out a few wrinkles in their performance, and give England a proper whacking next week aye? Tee hee hee.

Your world-beating All Blacks really struggled to put a second-string England team to the sword, and didn't look much like world-class at all.

The All Blacks lacked energy, weren't athletic, accurate, powerful, or even a tiny bit scary. Or did I miss something?

The world champions hardly struck fear into any of England's second team, whose mistakes, and the uncharacteristic lack of balls of the usually excellent Nigel Owens, who failed to bin at least two All Black players for cynical play in their "red zone", gifted the result to an All Black team beaten in the scrum, lineout and much of the breakdown.

I'd put money on it that England can't wait for next week, and the prospect of even more enlightened analysis from Mehrtens and Randell in respect of how arrogant, disrespectful and second rate they are compared to your All Blacks, whose pre-match war dance and funny faces proved far more scary than the rugby they played.
