Has Hargreaves made any tackles below the neck in the whole series ?

No, but still gets away with it.

Also thought the Makinson try was good, Proctor was looking for the penalty, which I don't think it was anyway because they'd been caught short on that side imo.

Apart from that though we've had enough chances in their 20 to score a few times but just haven't been clinical enough.

I agree, there was loads of depth. Proctor would have got nowhere near Bateman (was it?) Regardless.

Teams evenly matched but NZ have learned and slowed down the PTB, not played up middle in the forwards. England have gone away from what won them the first two - although with the loss of George Burgess they were never going to have the same forward dominance.

Agree with lack of using the big men but that probably because we have a lighter bench with only one recognised prop in there. The three of Graham, Hill, and Tom Burgess are going to have to share longer minutes because of George’s absence?

I thought they were always going to find this match more difficult with the personnel they lost from last game, not counting the ones that were already injured.

If these Test series were decided by aggregate score over the three matches it would make them more interesting.

We've looked very soft in the middle since the props have been rotated

Soon as Thompson then burgess came back on we looked far more threatening.
