Hansen's brave side gave New Zealand a scare last week before bowing out with their heads held high against England.
jThe Kiwi coach said: 'We did very well but we did not quite get up. We came here to win and we've got at them but we didn't have enough.
'I'm very proud and we've come a along way. In the second half we couldn't get any ball and kept giving away penalties.
'Jonny kept knocking them over as he does and in the end that was what broke the camel's back, but it was a great effort.
'Congratulations to England. They have been under the cosh three times and come away with a win.'
