Steve Hansen believes Eddie Jones unaffected by pressure

England flanker Tom Curry has been ruled out of the remaining Quilter Internationals after suffering an ankle injury in the win over South Africa. They've probably got more energy than us at the moment.

England coach Eddie Jones believes the introduction of a second referee could be rugby union's answer to dealing with the increasing intensity of the game. "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".

New Zealand lock Brodie Retallick also infamously said four years ago he only knew "a couple" of England players before naming Michael Lawes —instead of Northampton Saints forward Courtney.

England supplied the largest contingent of players to the 2017 Lions tour and upon their return, Eddie Jones requested suggestions from the likes of Owen Farrell and Maro Itoje on how the All Blacks could be beaten.

Curry limped off shortly after half time in England's win against South Africa last weekend before leaving Twickenham on crutches. So he's not too bothered by it.

"I guess the obvious answer, which really is the only answer, is that the selectors didn't pick him", said Foster.

'So I think the referees are doing a great job. "They obviously have a very good league and maybe our stuff is not shown on telly there".

"He's had some success against New Zealand in the past, but hopefully he doesn't get any on Saturday", Hansen said of Jones.

"You've got to play a certain way against them, there's no doubt about that".

"Does it mean we've got to be on guard against England?".

However, assistant coach Ian Foster told the assembled English and NZ media contingent that the team is still using this game to prepare for the pressure that next year's Word Cup will bring.
