The All Blacks lead England 29-6 at half time in the third test at Waikato Stadium in Hamilton.

The All Blacks were dominant from the outset, with left-wing Julian Savea bagging a double within the first ten minutes.

The All Blacks kept the heat on with relentless waves of attack. England scrambled in defence, but the pressure proved too much, and some nice work from Corey Jane released Aaron Smith down the right-hand touchline for the All Blacks' third try.

Smith picked up a second eight minutes later after linking up with fullback Ben Smith, who is more than backing up his brilliant performance in Dunedin last week.

England managed two Freddie Burns penalties in the half, but haven't been able to string together anything remotely threatening in attack.
