Makinson treble helps England win rugby league series vs NZ

Kiwis coach Michael Maguire is expecting a physical battle against England at Anfield

The case will be heard by a three-man panel, including one representative each from England and New Zealand.

After guiding England to the World Cup final last December, Bennett is delighted they have been able to continue the momentum, despite losing nine members from the team that pushed the Kangaroos all the way in Brisbane.

New Zealand will feel they were their own worst enemies in this contest.

Conversions: Connor (6 mins), Tomkins (75 mins).

England showed their guile, however, in their sprint to the finish.

England defeated the Kiwis 20-14 at Anfield on Sunday.

From 6-6 at halftime, New Zealand went back in front just four minutes into the new half with an exceptional try.

The signs looked promising from the visitors early. The Ngāti Raukawa product will be joined by Jillaroo counterpart Ali Brigginshaw, Dally M women's player of the year Brittany Breayley, and Isabelle Kelly, also of Australia and Georgia Roche of England. The killer blow came with a floated pass from George Williams putting Makinson over in the right-hand corner.

One man continually overlooked by Wayne Bennett is St Helens centre Mark Percival, who missed out to Jake Connor in the left centre role last weekend.

Shaun Johnson then added a penalty goal to give the visitors a 14-6 buffer.

The England side were brought back to life by a terse exchange which saw Sam Tomkins felled late after getting a kick away.

From the ensuing penalty, Makinson added a second try that nearly mirrored his first effort, and suddenly England were within four then when Jake Connor spun across for their third four-pointer of the afternoon, the mood in Liverpool had turned to a boisterous cauldron that was bubbling behind the home side.

New Zealand were camped on England's try-line but couldn't find a way through some desperate defence. Enter the man of the hour, Tommy Makinson.

Bennett has called Castleford loose forward Adam Milner into his 17-man squad but will use the hard-running Thompson as an extra prop at the start of the match and that means business as usual for the Saints player, who enjoyed a magnificent season in Super League.

They have now wrapped up the series but will still have plenty to play for at Elland Road next Sunday.
