Curry blow for England ahead of NZ clash

  • Beauden Barrett was a member of the 23-strong contingent that travelled to London early to prepare for the upcoming test against England on Sunday morning

"I don't really think it's relevant at all from what's going to happen at a World Cup".

Hansen said he and the Australian speak or text roughly once a fortnight: "You don't ring up people you don't like, just because they are doing the same job as you", Hansen told a news conference on London on Monday.

Ashton has the benefit of talking from experience, having featured in the 38-21 win over New Zealand six years ago, and he is relishing the chance to do it again after returning from a four-year exile against South Africa last weekend.

"They play different than we do, it's not to say they play a better game or a worse game, they just play differently".

"We were actually at the stadium so we weren't having scones like he suggested, or a cup of tea", Retallick said.

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

The All Blacks assistant coach, Ian Foster, believes players selected to take on England this weekend will be the best prepared they have ever been for a northern hemisphere tour and denied that Beauden Barrett's goal-kicking at fly-half was an area of concern.

"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".

Teammate Ben Smith said of the reception he and his teammates received: "There wasn't too much fuss when we got there - we were down the front". They've got some good ideas about the game so we've got plenty of enthusiasm there.

England lost four consecutive Test matches to New Zealand in 2014, but a quirk of the global fixture schedules means the two sides have not met since. Maybe. But there's a lot of good coaches out there. You've got to be in the game and, when you get the opportunity to score points, you've got to be good enough to take them. Obviously. It wouldn't matter if he were bullish or not.

Playing the Wallabies, Springboks and Pumas so often in the Rugby Championship, and enjoying sustained success against these teams, can create mental challenges when attempting to inspire the same motivation.
