All Blacks v England - Steve Hansen and Eddie Jones talk regularly

Springboks fans are some of the most passionate in the world

The England head coach sat down with his senior players on Sunday night to work through the notes they had compiled from their Lions experiences in New Zealand last summer, when the All Blacks were defeated in Wellington and the series drawn.

Pollard booted South Africa, missing key men with the Test falling outside the official worldwide window, into an early lead after Kyle Sinckler strayed offside and England were a man down with 15 minutes played when Itoje was shown a yellow card. "We're happy, they're not so happy".

England hope to have Manu Tuilagi and Courtney Lawes available but Ben Morgan has officially been ruled out.

How does the win on Saturday set you up for New Zealand?

"If it was all legal - and I didn't have a good look at the replay - we should start tackling like that."

Pollard had a chance to win it from the tee in a tense finale, but the fly-half was unable to edge South Africa back in front. So does Jones think England should take some lessons from how victory was won? 'We varied between the two and we need more consistency'. "We didn't give", Jones said.

Having now strung two wins together since five consecutive losses in 2018, Jones responded to whether England's biggest challenge this week is convincing his players that victory against the world champions is a possibility. "I think everyone's been looking forward to the game".

"Zero, mate", Jones replied.

New Zealand opened their autumn campaign by beating Japan 31-69 in Tokyo on Saturday, with a mainly second-string side. "They're the best team in the world and that's exciting for us but in terms of preparation, the preparation's about getting better and that's the same for every Test match we play".

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