Two Sam Underhill Tackles That Sum Up England’s Performance Against The All Blacks
Latest posts by Jason Hennessy (see all)
England have done it. Eddie Jones’s men are through to the Rugby World Cup final thanks to an incredible 19-7 win over reigning champions New Zealand.
A quickfire try from Manu Tuilagi set England’s stall out early with the All Blacks failing to fire a shot after that. England dominated Steve Hansen’s side from start to finish in one of the most impressive semi-final wins in recent memory.
Maro Itoje was incredible. Tom Curry was everywhere. Owen Farrell played over 50 minutes on one leg. Manu Tuilagi completely shut the All Blacks down in defence. But it was Sam Underhill who stole the show.

The Bath openside was a human wrecking ball at times. Tackling everything that moves and making a complete and utter nuisance of himself at the breakdown. The sheer ferocity of some of his hits pretty much sum up England’s entire performance.
Check out these two hits – the first one above is on All Blacks captain Kieran Read, with the other on replacement Jordie Barrett. Simply sensational. What a beast of a man.
