New Zealand's media have launched a stinging attack on England's rugby team branding them nothing more than thugs.

Despite the All Blacks winning the Test series 2-0 much of the focus has been on the sending-off of Simon Shaw, the ban meted out to Danny Grewcock for stamping on Daniel Carter and the general indiscipline, which the New Zealand media argues was largely at England's instigation, shown in the matches at Carisbrook and Eden Park.

Under the headline 'Dirty England A Disgrace' the Dominion Post's Australian columnist Spiro Zavos said England were "nothing more than a rabble, a rugby equivalent of a lynch mob, intent on playing All Blacks off the ball and angering them into mistakes and indiscretions".
