Game Stats: All Blacks v England, Christchurch, 21 June 2008

The usual analysis of the All Blacks game, being the First 3 to the Breakdown, tackle stats, penalties conceded, turnovers, the lineouts, and scrums.

Please note Completed Tackles means that player actually brought the ball carrier to ground (ie. snuffing out the movement), not assists in the tackle situation which are tallied separately. Missed tackles also includes slipped tackles where the ball runner gets away. Most importantly, I do NOT call a slipped tackle a tackle, it gets noted as a missed tackle. Either you’re nailing the ball carrier or you’ve stuffed it up!

Numbers in brackets are the first half/second half breakdown for each total. An asterisk denotes a player that came on as a substitute. (Boric 15 min, Lauaki 27 min, Mealamu 32 min for blood bin and permanently at 50 min, Woodcock at 40 min, Cowan at 67 min and Donald at 74 min).

Reserves: MacDonald, Donald, Cowan, Lauaki, Boric, Woodcock, Mealamu
