All Blacks beat England 32-6 to secure grand slam

10:33 am on 30 November 2008

Fullback Mils Muliaina scored two tries as the All Blacks piled on the second-half points to claim their biggest win over England at Twickenham by 32-6 to complete their third grand slam of wins over rugby's four home nations.

England were far more competitive than in tjheirn previous losses to Australia and South Africa.

But they were again undone by their own mistakes, handing the All Blacks a 12-3 halftime lead despite Dan Carter missing two of his six penalty attempts.

And as they did in their wins over Scotland, Ireland and Wales, the All Blacks turned up the pressure in the second half.

After saving a certain England try with a tap tackle on Nick Easter, Muliaina scored twice in 10 minutes.

Ma'a Nonu added the third to complete a great month for the All Blacks while England, who had four players sin-binned after another indisciplined display , still have a long way to go.
