All Blacks' Hansen and England's Jones talk regularly

England's Owen Farrell knocks down South Africa's Andre Esterhuizen

"Talking to Eddie, I know he and England are very excited about this game, and we are, too", Hansen said on Monday.

I suppose the proof will be in the way we play on Saturday but I'm definitely feeling good going into it. "I know that with his attitude he'll come back in even better shape".

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.

"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.

England head coach Eddie Jones has highlighted the importance of discipline against the All Blacks but Ashton rejects suggestions that they need to play at a faster pace. It's just in a different wrapper. "I think he's a good bloke".

Curry limped off shortly after half time in England's win against South Africa last weekend before leaving Twickenham on crutches.

Witnesses reported the sound of a large explosion and a auto bursting into flames outside the Target store on Friday afternoon. Clayton said that the public is still advised that the area remains closed as investigations are ongoing at the crime scene.

The scientists suspected that "Omwamwi" - alien ship
Yesterday, a number of astronomers criticized Loeb's conclusions, particularly the lack of direct evidence pointing to alien influence.

"Tom injured his ankle and we don't how long he'll be out for, but he won't be back for our next three Tests", Borthwick said.

"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. Maybe. But there's a lot of good coaches out there. If you're off on any one little bit of your game you're going to get hit.

New Zealand go into the game on the back of a 69-31 win over Japan in Tokyo last Saturday with a side featuring eight debutants.

"You're the guys calling him bullish, I'm just saying he's just trying to do the right thing for his team".

Ben Foakes would have no issue with stepping aside for Jonny Bairstow in England's second Test against Sri Lanka despite a man-of-the-match display on his debut in Galle. Obviously. It wouldn't matter if he were bullish or not. "They are a good rugby team".

England lost 24-21 that day, but under Jones they have beaten every other Tier 1 nation in the world at some point since 2016 - though their form has been rather more inconsistent of late.
