"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".

But Hansen says the famous All Blacks will be wearing their poppies with pride.

"But if you were asking me was he disappointed, yes he was, obviously".

"Winning 18 games in a row is not easy - only two teams in the history of world rugby have ever done it".

There were also 27 Englishmen among the 131 global rugby players to have died in the war. "We have natural athletes who want to run and carry the ball and pass the ball".

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.

Saracens hooker George came on for Dylan Hartley to help England to secure a 12-11 win against South Africa last week. They have been transformed under Jones, who was appointed in December 2015.

And Hansen says that disappointment has given the upcoming November global between New Zealand and Eddie Jones' side an added edge.

A full-strength England just did enough to see off a New Zealand side missing some 21 leading players.

The starting side has four changes from the side that faced Australia, one of them forced by injury this week when prop Joe Moody tore his eyelid at training, opening the way for Karl Tu'inukuafe.

"He might have a deal with a lawyer that he gets paid extra if the lawyer gets extra work".

READ: Why are the All Blacks so good? .

The All Blacks as a unit talk about the expectations on them, and Hansen and his staff encourage the players to "walk towards the pressure".

"There's huge anticipation at what lies ahead on Saturday (local time) and the team is certainly looking forward to the challenge of the weekend", Hansen said.

"We have to put our stamp on the game. The management are real harsh on the boys and the boys are harsh on each other so it makes it a healthy competitive environment".

"I said to Eddie have you have seen Ashton play?"

All Blacks coach Steve Hansen has billed the clash as bigger than last year's series against the British and Irish Lions, which finished in a 1-1 stalemate after three gripping Tests.

He added: "You've got to be reasonably stupid if you can't work out this is going to be big. There's 80,000 people, it's all over the papers, everyone's talking about it, you can't get a ticket".

"Styles make fights" is usually the talk of boxing promoters but it could prove true of England's long-awaited clash against world champions New Zealand at Twickenham on Saturday.

"They'll play a physical game up front, their kicking game is pretty good, their aerial skills to support that are pretty good".

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

"They've showed today they're going to be competitive against whoever you want to play against them".
