Hansen relishing Twickenham clash with 'good bloke' Jones

The All Blacks perform the haka prior to the test against England in London in 2014

Hansen said Jones's experience means the All Blacks will be tested at Twickenham, even if England are depleted by injuries.

Hansen's apparent esprit de corps with Jones - the pair communicate every second week and their wives regularly stay in touch - suggests the build-up and aftermath of this highly-anticipated test will take a respectful tone, but that's not to say the All Blacks coach won't fire a few verbal bullets at the press, particularly those writing for English publications. Some of you guys over here, I think you called them "confetti caps", which I thought was pretty disrespectful to the jersey.

"So it probably indicates I like him and he might like me; I don't know".

England have otherwise been given a clean bill of health ahead of Saturday's visit of New Zealand to Twickenham - the first time they have faced the world champions in four years.

"The only people that don't understand what it's like to be a head coach of an worldwide team are the people who've never been one". It comes just in a different wrapper. They've got some good ideas about the game so we've got plenty of enthusiasm there.

Curry limped out of England's narrow win over South Africa on the weekend, and it appears unlikely the four-Test global will be fit.

"The bottom line is he'll be going about doing his job like he always does. They obviously have a very good league and maybe our stuff is not shown on telly there".

"Tom injured his ankle and we don't know how long he'll be". If you're off on any one little bit of your game you're going to get hit.

"If you look back to that game, there are some players who really put their hand up and it also allowed us to send a group over here early".

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.

Playing the Wallabies, Springboks and Pumas so often in the Rugby Championship, and enjoying sustained success against these teams, can create mental challenges when attempting to inspire the same motivation.
