New Zealand have signalled their attacking intent against England by naming two playmakers in a full- strength side for Saturday's blockbuster Test at Twickenham.

England made a superb start under coach Eddie Jones after he signed on in November 2015.

"The crowd last week was wonderful, we had great support and enthusiasm for the game and they saw a great test match and I'm sure on Saturday they will see another". "Drawing the series for us wasn't successful so it's made this week have a sharper edge to it".

"There will be 80,000 people, it' s all over the papers, you can't get a ticket - you must have been on holiday if you can't work out it's going to be big". I remember us having a really good week of training and going in with a no-fear mentality with a view to taking New Zealand on.

"The other 67 percent want to beat them, so we're happy to go out there and get stuck in".

England did not show enough last week to suggest they can topple the All Blacks and the world champions are [1.2] for a reason.

The All Blacks biggest enemy may be their own expectations after Steve Hansen revealed this morning the constant pressure the team is under to deliver results on the global stage.

"There's already pressure on us, the one constant thing about being in the All Blacks is you're under pressure because you're expected to win every Test match you play and not only win it, win it really, really well".

"Once you come to realize that life becomes a little easier".

It is a prequel to the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story , which makes sense since everyone died in that film . In his own statement , Luna said that a TV series format would allow him to "explore this character more deeply".

"They had both been narrow defeats - 20-14 and 16-15 - so despite all the criticism we knew we weren't far off".

"The experience they had over us was massive - nearly four times as many caps - but with that you're almost not scared in some regards; you just think, 'right, we'll just go at it, try to express ourselves and throw everything at them to try and get the win".

Hansen has selected his strongest available team for the Hillary Shield match.

A gruesome photo has emerged of the horrific eye injury that's ruled All Blacks prop Joe Moody out of the rest of his side's European tour.

Hansen insists the player is not dwelling on that incident.

"Joe Moody has found a way to get himself injured this year in unusual fashion", Hansen said.

"Yes, he was disappointed, obviously".

All Blacks: Damian McKenzie, Ben Smith, Jack Goodhue, Reiko Ioane, Sonny Bill Williams, Beauden Barrett, Aaron Smith, Kieran Read (capt), Ardie Savea, Liam Squire, Brodie Retallick, Sam Whitelock, Owen Franks, Codie Taylor, Karl Tu'inukuafe. He did a shoulder charge which hit someone in the chops and got red carded and rightly so.
