e Tin by the Kiwis. It should be changed to The Graveyard as Englands Gillette Four Nations hopes were left virtually dead and buried. England, who trailed 18-0, now have to beat Australia in Melbourne on Sunday to have a realistic chance of reaching the final. Wellington was Great Britains Waterloo in the 2006 tri-Nations with a 34-4 defeat and Steve McNamaras men looked to be heading for anotherthumping against the world champions before a second half rally. McNamara said: We dipped our toe in the water, but got cold early on and that cost us. We tried tremendously hard to fight back but with only three group games there is little margin for error. We have made it a bit tougher for
ourselves but we are not disheartened. The Kiwis overcame
the loss of Manu The Beast Vatuvei with a broken arm after only two minutes to romp in front 12-0 with tries from Junior Sau and Lance Hohaia. Gareth Widdops fumbled Benji Marshalls kick then allowed Shaun Kenny-Dowall to
stroll through and make it 18-0 early in the second half. England, who lost Ryan Atkins with a leg injury, fought back when James Roby pounced on his own kick which rebounded off a post and then Widdop finished of
f their best move to make it 18-10. Sam Tomkins sent Michael Shenton racing clear from inside his own half and the St Helens-bound centre did well to feed Kevin Brown who
found Widdop on the inside. A Brown try was ruled out before Kiwis skipper Marshalls 67th minute try sealed victory. But Australia will have few sleepless nights with the Lions still without a win in New Zeal
and since 1992. New Zealand: Tries: Sau Hohaia, Ken
ny-Dowall, Marshall. Goals: Marshall 4. England: Tries: Roby, Widdop. Goal: Widdop.
