England however are well stocked with back row options for the remaining games against New Zealand, Japan and Australia.

"We've been able to come here fresh which is good - this is probably the freshest we've been", Foster said as the squad prepare to face England at Twickenham for the first time in four years.

With Curry unavailable, England are likely to turn to another rookie flanker against the All Blacks in the form of Sam Underhill.

With the highly-anticipated fixture that commands ticket prices up to £195 now due, Jones will use the drawn series with Steve Hansen's world champions as guidance. It's a big part of their game to nail it so they can get into their game at the right end of the field.

"I think you've got to be careful with the word "experimenting", Hansen said.

"We had a meeting with the senior players last night (Sunday) and have a pretty good idea how we want to play against New Zealand".

"There's a lot of pressure there, all the time, whether you're winning or losing". There's a bit to be learned there. "The players have been bouncing around probably trying to get us management up".

"They win so many in the last few minutes of the game, it's something you can't ever give up on". "It was physical, it's probably not the style of rugby we're used to but they're extremely good at what they did".

"There's no magic formula - it's not like Pythagoras' theorem".

"It's like everything - when you're selecting a national team, there's a whole lot of good players that don't quite make it".

England head coach Eddie Jones was aware that New Zealand had declined the offer of free tickets from the RFU, assuming that the players had preferred to watch the Springboks match in the warmth of their Teddington hotel, "drinking cups of tea, maybe having some scones, saying "oh, we'll take these guys".

His good mate Jones, an Australian, has already had a go here. They're the three areas they've improved the most in. As Eddie Jones was determined to stress, there is a huge difference between acknowledging how to defeat New Zealand and precisely doing it.

"But now they're able to play that tighter game when it's required and that's why it's so hard to beat them now".

England claimed that Manu Tuilagi and Courtney Lawes were both fit and available for selection after missing the 12-11 win against South Africa with groin and back injuries respectively.
