Eddie Jones calls for two on-field referees

Eddie Jones calls for two on-field referees

"We've been able to come here fresh which is good - this is probably the freshest we've been", Foster said as the squad prepare to face England at Twickenham for the first time in four years.

"First and foremost you've got to have some form of relationship that allows you to get on with each other".

"I think we've got over the stage of seeing him in a white jersey now".

England flanker Tom Curry has been ruled out of the three remaining November internationals due to an ankle injury, forwards coach Steve Borthwick said on Tuesday. "We've been going through those notes", England's head coach said.

Asked if Jones would be under the greater pressure given England's poor record this year, Hansen told Sky Sports: "There's a lot of pressure there, all the time, whether you're winning or losing".

Barça through to Champions League last 16 despite late Inter equaliser
Despite the late setback, Barca again proved their ability to perform without injured captain Lionel Messi , with stand-in skipper Busquets excited to see this improving side link up without their superstar.

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.

"Eddie more than anybody understands that".

"When we were successful with the Wallabies we could beat them because we could get to their set-piece, particularly their line-out", he said. We've got some good training under our belt, we've adjusted coming from Japan so the group that's got here is fresh and looking forward to the challenge and it's going to be a big one. They've got some good ideas about the game so we've got plenty of enthusiasm there.

"It's like everything - when you're selecting a national team, there's a whole lot of good players that don't quite make it. They do it in rugby league in Australia".

New Zealand go into the game on the back of a 69-31 win over Japan in Tokyo last Saturday with a side featuring eight debutants.
