England 3 New Zealand 14 rugby LIVE SCORE: Farrell penalty hands hosts first points after All Black early domination | The Sun

ENGLAND are hosting New Zealand in a mammoth Autumn International this evening and the game is underway.

Eddie Jones' side got back to winning ways last weekend with a 52-13 hammering of Japan while the All Blacks defeated Scotland 31-23 last time out in a close encounter.

But it has been a poor start for England against the All Blacks, finding themselves behind so far despite an Owen Farrell penalty handing them a potential way back.
