Steve Hansen: England Test 'bigger than Lions'

All Blacks centre Jack Goodhue joined the squad in London after recovering from glandular fever

"Maybe he has a deal with a lawyer that he gets paid extra if the lawyer gets extra work". Because when it comes to pressure, Hansen feels there is no better team accustomed to dealing with its many faces.

Despite England's 12-11 win over South Africa last weekend, the stats and the experts suggest that England have no chance when they host New Zealand at Twickenham on Saturday, live on Sky Sports.

"You can either make the movie or be in the movie, and we want to make the movie", Jones said when asked if teams suffer by putting the All Blacks on a pedestal.

"Ed Hillary was one of the great men of New Zealand", added Hansen.

Chris Ashton has his shortcomings in defence and a readily accessible self-destruct button, but the predatory Sale wing possesses genuine X-factor and a strong afternoon against New Zealand would propel him towards World Cup selection. The last two weeks we've probably seen the energy levels and work-rate in that group as good as it's been all year. You need to have the right intensity, and be able to have a cool enough head with that intensity to convert pressure into points, take your opportunities and ultimately put scores on the board. "The one constant thing about being in the All Blacks is that you're under pressure because you're expected to win every Test you play and win it really, really well".

England face New Zealand for the first time in four years on Saturday when the All Blacks visit Twickenham.

When Jones' comments were put to Read at New Zealand's team hotel in London on Friday, he replied: "We do the Haka as a challenge but it is more about us connecting as a team".

As well, doctors and health care professionals are able to provide the flu shot for families and babies six months of age and up. However, the nasal flu vaccine, FluMist, is made from weakened but live virus cells and may cause flu-like symptoms.

The Australian won his first 17 games in charge as England, who had marked the end of predecessor Stuart Lancaster's reign with a "meaningless" pool victory over Uruguay as they crashed out of the 2015 World Cup on home soil, equalled the All Blacks' world record of 18 consecutive wins by a major test-match nation.

"Once you come to realise that [pressure], life becomes a little easier". "I think the Lions tour has made it bigger because we weren't successful. There's going to be 80,000 people, it's all over the papers, everyone's talking about it and you can't get a ticket".

England have won just seven matches against the All Blacks since they first met in 1905, but George has taken heart from the way the Lions drew a three-Test series 1-1 a year ago.

"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".

"They had both been narrow defeats - 20-14 and 16-15 - so despite all the criticism we knew we weren't far off".

"They'll look to wear you down".

"They beat South Africa the other day so you'd have to say they're on the up".
