Only watched the game now, thoroughly enjoyed it. What a fantastic result for England, one that caps off one of rugby league's finest years in recent memory. No-one has yet mentioned Ben Thaler's handling of the game but I felt he had another fine match and for me is the best referee in the world. It is also time to recognise maybe that McNamara perhaps does have what it take at international level. He has created a genuine England team culture and prepared England in the best possible manner. Team selections and tactics may not have always been spot on but he made the right calls for the decider in bringing in Smith and McGilvary, yes the Kiwis may not have had their strongest side, but England have just defeated the number one international nation in a game that mattered. Well done to everyone involved in bringing England up to the level of the two Southern Hemisphere giants.
