"It's hard to wrap your arms around when you're both hitting each other at that much force, but I tried to".

"England have beaten New Zealand despite overwhelming odds before, and they can again - but to do so against a champion All Black side in mint condition, they will have to be every bit as sharp and skilful, and play with manic determination".

England co-captain Owen Farrell has not been cited over his controversial tackle that helped England narrowly beat South Africa Saturday, World Rugby has confirmed. You know, we're a bloody good team, we've lost a few games, we played tough today and we won. "When our boys played for the Lions we got them to do notes about what they felt worked and didn't work", he said. 'We varied between the two and we need more consistency'. The action continues on Saturday against New Zealand before clashes against Japan and Australia.

"I thought when the game opened up there were opportunities we didn't take which I'm disappointed in, but generally speaking we're pleased to have grabbed that win and to move onto New Zealand this week". "Sometimes you can take what you want from it", Farrell said.

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. Well, you're going to do it at some stage - you know that, you know that. If I stay long enough, you're going to get me sacked.

This was England's first match since Jones had brought former All Blacks coach John Mitchell into his backroom staff as defence supremo.

Two Farrell penalties kept England in touch before a long-range Elliot Daly kick gave Jones' men the lead.

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. It was a good Test match game of rugby today.
