What channel is New Zealand vs England on? TV, live stream and how to watch Second Test today

England renew hostilities with New Zealand in their Second Test against the All Blacks on Saturday.

Steve Borthwick’s side are hoping to become the first team to defeat the hosts at the formidable Auckland venue since all the way back in 1994 after last weekend’s painful 16-15 loss in a thrilling opening clash in Dunedin.


England impressed once again at Forsyth Barr Stadium and scored tries in each half through Maro Itoje and Immanuel Feyi-Waboso as they went toe to toe with the three-time Rugby World Cup winners in their own backyard, but ultimately they were just found lacking as Marcus Smith endured an evening to forget from the kicking tee as opposite number Damian McKenzie notched two late penalties to secure victory following scores from Sevu Reece and Ardie Savea.

Many feel that England missed a golden chance to secure only their third-ever win over the All Blacks on New Zealand soil and first since 2003, with new head coach Scott Robertson beginning his tenure with the narrowest of triumphs in their first match since losing the World Cup final to South Africa in France in the autumn.

No team has beaten the All Blacks at Eden Park now for 30 years, a simply incredible run that stretches back 48 matches.
