England hammered 32-6 by the All Blacks

England were hammered 32-6 by the all conquering All Blacks at Twickenham this afternoon. The heavy loss comes just a week after Martin Johnson's side suffered a record defeat to South Africa.

New Zealand fullback Mils Muliaina dotted down twice, while man of the match Ma'a Nonu put the All Blacks out of sight. The result could have been much worse for England but Dan Carter uncharacteristically missed five kicks at goal.

Ill-discipline again cost England dear as they gave away 30 penalties and ended up with four players in the sin-bin at different points in the match. It would have been difficult for England to beat the All Blacks with 15 players on the pitch let alone missing a number of key men for 10 minutes at a time.
