England Extended Highlights: England v New Zealand | 2015

The latest in our monthly series of extended England Rugby League highlights is here and we're taking it back to 2015 and the deciding game of the three-match test series against New Zealand with the coveted Baskerville Shield on the line!

England had won game one in Hull 26-12 but the Kiwis had hit back a week later at the Olympic Stadium in London sealing a 2-9 victory. 

The decider would take place at Wigan's DW Stadium with both sides looking to lift the Shield, which hadn't been played for since Great Britain claimed the prize back in 2007.

The England side that took to the field that day:

Zak Hardaker, Jermaine McGillvary, Kallum Watkins, John Bateman, Ryan Hall; Gareth Widdop, Matty Smith; James Graham, Josh Hodgson, Chris Hill, Elliott Whitehead, Liam Farrell, Sean O'Loughlin.

And on the interchange bench were James Roby, Tom Burgess, Michael Cooper and Brett Ferres, with the side being led by Steve McNamara.
