On a day to think about how a game might have gone differently, there's an article looking at NZ thinking in 2019

In short, it says Hansen was right about including Scott Barrett to attack the English lineout but probaby should have just swapped out Whitelock, rather than putting him in the back row instead of Sam Cane. Also thinks Hansen didn't go after Jones in the pre-match war of words, which set too much of a defensive tone. Finally, Hansen elected not to beast his squad ahead of the match, because his captain was carrying a niggle, which made him a doubt. That might have left his side undercooked.
