New Zealand outplayed England at the Olympic Stadium to keep the three-match rugby league Test series alive with an attritional 9-2 victory.

England, who were favourites to secure a series-clinching win after starting with a 26-12 triumph in Hull, defended heroically at times against their more enterprising opponents but were short of ideas in attack.

The Kiwis scored the only try through winger Shaun Kenny-Dowall two minutes into the second half and, although England thought they had drawn level with a try from James Graham controversially disallowed by the video referees, they could have no complaints about the final outcome.
