TOKYO: England and New Zealand will meet for the 42nd time, in the Rugby World Cup semi-finals on Saturday, with the All Blacks winning 33 of the previous games, England seven, with one draw.

Here are five of the most memorable encounters.

June 1995, World Cup semi-final, Cape Town

New Zealand won 45-29

This game is forever remembered for one of the most remarkable individual displays in international rugby history as 20-year-old wing Jonah Lomu scored four tries, trampling over and through England players as if they were children.

Lomu, who died in 2015 following complications from kidney disease, was a thunderous presence, with Mike Catt regularly trampled underfoot, as the All Blacks blew into a 35-3 lead after half an hour.

England regrouped and scored four tries in the second half but the damage had been well and truly done by then by a superb New Zealand team who had so much confidence that number eight Zinzan Brooke even landed a drop goal almost from the halfway line.
