England coach wants to build on record win over All Blacks

5:54 pm on 15 January 2013

The England coach Stuart Lancaster wants to use the team's record-breaking win over the All Blacks in December as a springboard to success in the forthcoming Six Nations Championship.

Following narrow losses to Australia and South Africa, England overcame the All Blacks 38-21 victory at Twickenham last month.

The 17-point margin was England's biggest winning margin against New Zealand but the manner of their victory was especially impressive.

Lancaster, says however the success will count for little if England, last year's Six Nations runners-up fail to maintain their form.
