Burgess faces listening to over alleged gouge

Burgess faces listening to over alleged gouge

Credit must go to the English defence, after a messy opening half hour they nullified the Kiwis attack, led by hooker Josh Hodgson, racking up 40 tackles in an 80 minute performance.

George Burgess has been cited following an incident involving New Zealand captain Dallin Watene-Zelezniak during England's series-clinching victory at Anfield on Sunday.

After reaching the World Cup final a year ago and beating New Zealand three times in a row in 2018, England are a side on the rise.

England ran in four tries in total, the influential Jake Connor also crossing the Kiwis' line, as the hosts pulled clear in the second half after the teams turned round level at 6-6.

Scouser Graham, 33, is already England's most-capped player and will extend his appearances record to 43 in the showdown on Merseyside.

Bennett has called Castleford loose forward Adam Milner into his 17-man squad but will use the hard-running Thompson as an extra prop at the start of the match and that means business as usual for the Saints player, who enjoyed a magnificent season in Super League.

Wayne Bennett chats with England rugby union coach Eddie Jones.

"That's worldwide football. I'm a tough boy, I'm an adult, I'm a man so I can take those kinds of things but what I can't take is a loss", Watene-Zelezniak said during his post match-interview.

Japan crossed the whitewash five times and Hansen said the 2019 World Cup hosts were getting "better and better". England beat South Africa 12-11 in their opening November global at Twickenham on Saturday.

New Zealand were camped on England's try-line but couldn't find a way through some desperate defence.

Watene-Zelezniak was put through a gap on halfway by Kodi Nikorima's short pass and he toyed with the England defenders before sending winger Ken Maumalo over at the corner.

Shaun Johnson then added a penalty goal to give the visitors a 14-6 buffer.

England seized the momentum and kept the pressure on, with only fearless defence holding Tom Burgess up over the line.

Connor said: "I know Tommy possesses tremendous speed and if I put him into space he will score". "There's a lot of hurt in the changing room", he said.

"The boys have had to learn some pretty harsh lessons over the last two games about what Test football is all about".

"I don't really watch much football but, if I was choosing a team, I'd choose Liverpool". "They have a very simple game plan, they complete high and they stay there for the 80 minutes, it's something we need to pick up on".
