All Blacks Survive A Late England Comeback to claim a draw

Will Stuart, an unlikely Twickenham hero, saved England in an exciting Autumn Nations Series tie with New Zealand with a last-ditch try and Marcus Smith's conversion.


With replacement prop Stuart scoring two tries and Freddie Steward adding another, the hosts crossed the line three times in the last eight minutes of a game that appeared to be lost.


For a large portion of the match, New Zealand outperformed the home team and looked poised to win for the fourth time in a row at Twickenham. Dalton Papali'i and Codie Taylor scored two tries in the opening seven minutes, and Rieko Ioane added a third try that appeared to be retaliation for their World Cup semifinal loss to Eddie Jones' team four years prior.


But in the 72nd minute, Stuart forced his way over the line from a metre away, and Beauden Barrett was shown a yellow card.


As Steward crossed over in wide open space for their second try and Stuart put the ball down in the final minute at a bouncy Twickenham, the man advantage proved to be critical.
