"But they are the number one team in the world, so can adapt depending on how they see fit".

"If he weren't a rugby player he'd be a marathon runner because he can run and run for days without getting exhausted".

"I remember Nick Farr-Jones - very educated, silver-spoon in the mouth, smart guy - he said, "we're not doing that, that's ridiculous".

Jamie George insists England are braced to face New Zealand at their most devastating after being served notice of what Saturday's Twickenham showdown means to the world champions.

The name of Hillary, who died in 2008, has extra resonance for the All Blacks. He flew straight to England from New Zealand.

A few months before they actually won the World Cup, England produced perhaps their best performance of the Clive Woodward era.

Lawes missed the South Africa game with a back problem but his presence bolsters the England lineout and general play fo the pack for what will be a draining game against New Zealand.

"Once you come to realise that [pressure], life becomes a little easier". [The pressure] is there, it's not going to go away.

"The experience they had over us was massive - nearly four times as many caps - but with that you're almost not scared in some regards; you just think, 'right, we'll just go at it, try to express ourselves and throw everything at them to try and get the win".

The All Blacks biggest enemy may be their own expectations after Steve Hansen revealed this morning the constant pressure the team is under to deliver results on the global stage. "The management are real harsh on the boys and the boys are harsh on each other so it makes it a healthy competitive environment".

"Once you've acknowledged it's there you can deal with it", he said.

Hansen reckons it has become an even bigger game due to their failure to win the series.

"There's 80,000 people (in the stadium), it's all over the papers, everyone's talking about it, you can't get a ticket".

"The buzz is bigger, that Lions tour has made it bigger".

"If he was Sexton then we'd be able to complain about him, but because he's Owen Farrell he's allowed to be hit late", said Jones. "If they want to be physical they can be, if they want to play wide and expansive rugby they can do that, so we'll have to wait to see which way they choose to play but we will be ready for whatever".

England head into this weekend's clash with wing Chris Ashton, one of the most prolific try-scorers in the game, back in their starting side for the first time in four years.

"They'll look to wear you down".
