London - World champions New Zealand came from 15-0 down to beat England 16-15 in a thrilling November Test at a rainswept Twickenham on Saturday.
England, after letting slip a commanding lead, thought they had won the match with four minutes left when Sam Underhill crossed for a 'try' after Courtney Lawes charged down a kick by New Zealand replacement scrumhalf TJ Perenara.
But French referee Jerome Garces, after consulting the television match official, disallowed the score for a marginal offside infringement by Lawes at the ruck that preceded the kick.
England, bidding for just their eighth win over the All Blacks in 41 Tests, surged into a shock 15-0 lead on the back of tries by Chris Ashton and Dylan Hartley.
But New Zealand were only five points down at half-time thanks to Damian McKenzie's converted try and a Beauden Barrett penalty.
Flyhalf Barrett's second-half drop-goal and penalty then proved the decisive scores.
