Chris Ashton to make rare start for England

But a relaxed Read, speaking at New Zealand's London hotel on Friday, said: "We do the haka as a challenge, but it is more about us connecting as a team". In only drawing the series, that wasn't successful to us.

The two sides have not met since New Zealand edged a close encounter 24-21 at Twickenham in 2014, but the world champion will take on a resurgent England side fresh off victory against South Africa last weekend.

"I feel like this team is primed and ready to go".

"Because that's what happens when you play New Zealand sometimes - you sit there and you watch and you think "they're the best team in the world, we can't compete against them".

"I remember Nick Farr-Jones - very educated, silver-spoon in the mouth, smart guy - he said, "we're not doing that, that's ridiculous". "If he wasn't a rugby player he would be a marathon runner because he can run for days without getting exhausted".

Will you help us share the story?" " You won't see our Christmas advert on TV this year , because it was banned", Iceland wrote on Twitter.

While England's form this year has been inconsistent, it highlights further parallels with the class of 2012 who came into their match against the All Blacks on the back of a losing series in South Africa and one win in six games during June and November. Then you realise "we can be in this", but by then it's too late.

They are heavy favourites for victory at the weekend but Hansen shrugged off talk of his team being under pressure to deliver.

If the often outspoken English coach was not already aware how highly motivated the All Blacks are to dominate at Twickenham tomorrow, he certainly should be now after Steve Hansen raised the stakes significantly by suggesting this match is more important than last year's British and Irish Lions tour. We've focused on why we won those games.

"We understand who we are and our history, but you've got to be reasonably stupid if you can't work out this is going to be big", he adds.

"We have to put our stamp on the game".

During the news conference, Trump also turned on reporter Yamiche Alcindor of PBS' "NewsHour". Earlier in the video, Shapiro notices three frames that were frozen to slow down the action.

Eddie Jones says he will pay little attention to the haka when the All Blacks perform it on Saturday and has joked he would not notice if the Spice Girls were singing instead. "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".

Eventually defying all stereotypes about their "boring" rugby, England ran in three second-half tries after Owen Farrell kicked them into an unexpected 12-0 half-time lead.

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

"The other 67 percent want to beat them, so we're happy to go out there and get stuck in".
