Game Stats: England v All Blacks, London, 21 November 2009
by Tracey Nelson
23 Nov 2009

The usual analysis of the All Blacks game, being the First 3 to the Breakdown, ball carries, tackle stats, penalties conceded, turnovers, the lineouts, and scrums. (NOTE: Dan Carter became the highest points scorer for New Zealand with the 14 points he scored taking him to 979, over taking Andrew Merhtens’ previous record tally of 966 points).

Please note Completed Tackles means that player actually brought the ball carrier to ground (ie. halting the movement and being the tackler according to the laws of the game), not assists in the tackle situation which are tallied separately. Missed tackles also includes slipped tackles where the ball carrier isn’t stopped. Most importantly, I do NOT call a slipped tackle a tackle, it gets noted as a missed tackle.

Numbers in brackets are the first half/second half breakdown for each total. An asterisk denotes a player who came on as a substitute.

Team: Mils Muliaina, Zac Guildford, Conrad Smith, Ma’a Nonu, Sitiveni Sitivatu, Dan Carter, Jimmy Cowan, Kieran Read, Richie McCaw(c), Adam Thomson, Tom Donnelly, Brad Thorn, Owen Franks, Andrew Hore, Tony Woodcock.
Reserves: Cory Flynn, John Afoa, Anthony Boric, Jerome Kaino, Andy Ellis, Stephen Donald, Tamati Ellison.

Substitutions were: Afoa for Franks, Boric for Donnelly, and Kaino for Thomson all at 57 min, Ellis for Cowan at 70 min.
