Former All Black captain Stu Wilson shares his thoughts on a tired All Blacks' performance and how the English crowd disrespected the haka.

The All Blacks may have got the victory over England, and in All Blacks' history it has always been about results, but there was something missing out on the Twickenham turf this morning.

The men in black just looked tired. They're certainly not playing like they did in the June tests and the beginning of the Tri-Nations. But in saying that it was still good enough to knock the English over.

Graham Henry, Steve Hansen and Wayne Smith, all they want is wins, regardless of the team they're playing against, and that's what the boys got.

There will be a bit of work done in the next week as there were certain areas that they will need to look at.

The Sonny Bill Williams-Ma'a Nonu combination looked OK but it was disappointing that they weren't really tested by the English. The touch that Sonny Bill had to give the ball to Jerome Kaino and set up the opening try was just typical of what he's good at. He just needs more time in the saddle and I'd really like to see him play at No.12 with Conrad Smith outside him.

The two wingers had strong games as Hosea Gear had a good first half and Joe Rokocoko was his normal busy self. His work rate is phenomenal at the moment, he's like another loose forward. But he's still not plugging through enough holes and half-gaps which is a worry. The gaps seem to close on him and it looks like he may have lost that spark.

Sam Whitelock led the way in the forwards with an very impressive performance. The Cantabrian was reliable in the lineout and made some important tackles on the defensive line.

However there was just something missing in that All Blacks' performance which was riddled with silly errors. That was their 11th game of the year and even though they've had a bit of a rest and some of the squad played in the ITM Cup, they are still making simple errors and their decision making is poor at times.

A lot of guys were caught doing silly things and I can't understand that, as their game should be improving as the year gets on.

There is only one player in the team that can fire a 50-50 pass and find the man and that's Sonny Bill Williams. Our guys were flicking the ball around instead of making the decision to go in and set another phase up and keep pressure on the Poms.

As you start to get tired towards the end of the year you have to rely on those good decisions. They're not being patient with the ball and that puts more pressure on them.

Tthe only thing that I was disappointed with was the Rugby Union, the only world nation that doesn't put their own country's name ahead of their union, and the fact that the English booed the haka.

I just sat back at 3.30am thinking 'you condescending pricks'. Let us do the haka and then you can do your Swing Low Sweet Chariot.

I go back to when Munster and Ireland play us, in Ireland you can hear a pin drop. They want to respect the side and feel the spirit of the haka. The same happens in France.

As guests in their house it was just so disrespectful and yet again it's not the first time they've done it.

It was as bad as the Kiwis fans booing the Australian national anthem before last night's league test. I just couldn't believe that New Zealanders were doing that and then a few hours the English did that to us.
