England vs. New Zealand: Eddie Jones did not miss a decisive assault

New Zealand is clinging to claim a close victory over England

England coach Eddie Jones hopes England will "get some love from the game" in the future, as Sam Underhill's likely victory is slowly losing 16-15 away from New Zealand.

Underhill threw the corner at the 75th minute, only to see Courtney Lawes deciding offside on the build-up.

"Sometimes your game loves you and sometimes it does not," said Jones.

"It will always balance, we'll get some love from the game below the track."

England has benefited from a similar tight decision during the last week's victory for South Africa when Owen Farrell's latest attempt on Andre Esterhuizen was declared legal.

New Zealand coach Steven Hansen believes that referee Jerome Garces, who sent Sonny Bill Williams to the second test defeat of all blacks by the British and Irish lions in 2017, showed courage to make the right call.

"There was no doubt he was away," Lawes said. "It's just in the back pocket of half of the scrum.

"What they were telling me was that they would be brave enough to make the right decision?

"England probably took a lucky break last week, so they could not get two straight."

Bath's Underhill's brother said, "We did not see the screen. When it brought it back was what it was, but it is these small margins. "

Former England coach Bryan Moore said during an annotation: "That was marginal, these are things that happen against you. It is the interpretation of the referees and England must live with her. "

Jones gets heart from performance

Despite the defeat, Jones believes the outcome is good for England's 2019 World Cup qualities, where his team will meet with All Blacks in the semifinals, should have won the respective Pools and the last eight meetings.

"We had a team of 400 hats and we had a team of 800 hats, which is a difference and your ability to handle these difficult situations is greatly reduced in experience," Jones said.

"The next time we play them, it could be a different story. Every time we play them, we'll feel like we have a game to get them.

"We needed a bend to rejuvenate ourselves and we did that.

"We have Mako and Billy Vunipola and Nathan Hughes all to come back to the conflict, so that's a good way to be in."
