Eddie Jones names his favourite All Blacks

The All Blacks perform the haka prior to the test against England in London in 2014

England haven't played New Zealand since 2014 when they faced the world champions four times and lost on every occasion.

Flanker Tom Curry was ruled out of the rest of England's rugby tests this month because of the left ankle he injured against South Africa.

Their performances improved in tandem with England's fightback against the Springboks and they are expected to keep their places when Eddie Jones names his starting XV for the All Blacks' visit to Twickenham.

"We're looking forward to playing against one of the best sides in the world".

"The only people that don't understand what it's like to be a head coach of an global team are the people who have never been one", Hansen said.

"If you're going to spend all day grizzling about your goal-kicker then you lose focus about their overall part of the game". There's a bit to be learned there.


"But you know that, you know that there's going to be pressure with the job, and you accept that and you get on with it".

"There's no magic formula - it's not like Pythagoras' theorem. Twickenham, full house, big game, they're always pretty special".

"Sounds simple but their win rate of 91 per cent shows you it's not simple".

Meanwhile New Zealand coach Steve Hansen refused to rise to the media's bait and stoke up the rivalry ahead of Saturday's much-anticipated clash - the first time England will play New Zealand in four years.

Jones himself experienced plenty of success against the sport's dominant force after compiling a creditable record of five wins from 11 matches as Australia boss between 2001 to 2005.

"He's got a tremendous work ethic, Eddie; he does a lot of homework and through that he will have identified some areas he'll want to try to target", Hansen said. So has their scrum and the depth of their players.
