'He's a dangerous wee man' – Steve Hansen raves over Damian McKenzie's heroics against England

All Blacks coach Steve Hansen heralded the impact of fullback Damian McKenzie, after his heroics in New Zealand's 16-15 win over England at Twickenham.

Having been 15-0 down, the All Blacks fought their way back into the match, sparked by McKenzie scoring their only try of the game to seal a gutsy one point victory.

Speaking to media after the match, the performance of the mercurial fullback wasn't lost on Hansen.

"He's just getting better all the time," Hansen began.

"He's a dangerous wee man when he gets an opportunity.

"He just about split them late in that second half, he'll be pleased with some of the stuff he did, and there's a couple of wee lessons he got in the game too.

"He had a pretty good game."
