"Tom Curry is not available this week and he'll be ruled out for the rest of the series as well", said England forwards coach Steve Borthwick.

"We usually talk either by text or by phone, probably every second week".

"The bottom line is, we talk and our wives talk".

"I think we've got over the stage of seeing him in a white jersey now".

"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", Hansen said.

Curry limped off shortly after half time in England's win against South Africa last weekend before leaving Twickenham on crutches. "It just comes in a different wrapper".

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".

"Eddie more than anybody understands that".

"People who get excited by it are the people that have to write the stories, and sell the newspapers". And he's still doing the same job.

'So I think the referees are doing a great job. Then when you get a chance to score a point you should be able to get them.

After facing New Zealand, England play Japan on November 17 before facing Australia on November 24.

Territory is a big part of the way they play and their kicking game allows them to do that so we are going to have to have good plans around how we defuse that and we will go from there.

New Zealand also have some competition for the world record, from none other than Namibia - a team they are grouped with at next year's Rugby World Cup for a second successive time. 'You've been involved in rugby, things don't change quickly'.

"We've got a lot of options there", added the former England captain. Obviously. It wouldn't matter if he were bullish or not.

Smith insists they are in good shape for the game at Twickenham despite the long journey to London. "So it makes them a good side".
