England face New Zealand for the first time in four years and have been installed as heavy underdogs against the world champions.

The All Blacks, three-time World Cup winners and defending champions heading into next year's tournament, ran out 24-21 winners the last time they faced England in 2014. Players like him are never 100 per cent right.

Hansen doesn't say these things by chance. Because when it comes to pressure, Hansen feels there is no better team accustomed to dealing with its many faces. He flew straight to England from New Zealand. "If he wasn't a rugby player he would be a marathon runner because he can run for days without getting exhausted". When the players run out, they will pass the spot where soil from the Belgian grave of former captain Ronnie Poulton, who was killed in 1915, was buried at Twickenham in May.

"If you're slightly off against the All Blacks they'll take advantage".

Tom Youngs believes England can go about silencing their army of doubters against New Zealand on Saturday by producing the same kind of no-fear performance his own underrated side did six years ago.

Hansen has selected his strongest available team for the Hillary Shield match.

"New Zealand week is different. If we're not good enough then we work out how we can get good enough".

"They won 18 Tests in a row coming out of a World Cup that was deemed to be a disaster". The truth is a little more complicated but then a review of the 31-year-old Ashton's union career, since he switched from rugby league in 2007, is less a gentle trip down memory lane and more a 130mph joyride mixed with a stock-car smash. [The pressure] is there, it's not going to go away.

"Thirty-three per cent of our players have beaten them and understand that like any team they've got weaknesses and that we've got an opportunity to get at them", Jones said.

"I don't know who's writing them (England) off; it would be foolish to do that", said Hansen. You're expected to win every Test match you play and not only win it, win it really, really well.

"It's not hard because they feel it straight away - it can be an overwhelming place. You couldn't describe it any other way", said Hansen.

Chris Ashton has taken the long way round back to the England team but timed his return just right as he prepares to start his first worldwide for four years against New Zealand in the most eagerly awaited fixture of Eddie Jones's tenure.

"There will be 80,000 people, it' s all over the papers, you can't get a ticket - you must have been on holiday if you can't work out it's going to be big". "I think the Lions tour has made it bigger because we weren't successful. Drawing the series for us wasn't successful so it's made this week have a sharper edge to it".

England were far from convincing in a 12-11 win over South Africa at Twickenham last weekend.

"The acceleration requirement of the players is 30 percent more now than it was two or three years ago, so the game's getting physically more intense and therefore you need to be able to particularly fill the high-work rate positions with two players because it's nearly impossible now to field a front-rower for 80 minutes".

"The other ones whenever they have gone out, they have done a really good job".

"They'll look to wear you down".
