Gloucester's Freddie Burns kicked two penalties on his England debut, as world champions New Zealand were soundly beaten 38-21 at Twickenham.

The fly-half was named among the replacements, and took to the field in the 64th minute. He was soon involved - scoring two penalties in quick succession to put England 38-14 up.

Burns' Gloucester team-mate Ben Morgan started the game at number eight to earn his ninth cap, while Bath's David Wilson came off the bench to earn his 23rd cap.

It was the All Blacks' first defeat in 20 matches, and their first loss to England in ten years.
