Tom Curry has been ruled out of the remainder of England's autumn series by the ankle injury sustained against South Africa.

We are in a good position but we are going to have to have a good preparation week and I think the last couple of weeks will allow us to play some good footie this weekend.

England will face back-to-back world champions New Zealand for the first time in four years at Twickenham on Saturday, with Hansen insisting Jones' men remain a global power.

"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.

England have additional insight into New Zealand through John Mitchell, the former All Blacks coach who is now Jones' assistant up to the end of the World Cup.

Cape Town - A world record is in the offing for the All Blacks in their Test against England at Twickenham on Saturday.

"He injured his ankle but beyond that we don't know how long, but for the next three Test matches he'll be unavailable for us - everybody else is available for selection".

"Eddie more than anybody understands that".

"He's got a tremendous work ethic, Eddie; he does a lot of homework and through that he will have identified some areas he'll want to try to target", Hansen said.

'So I think the referees are doing a great job. "It's disappointing but whenever there's an injury it is an opportunity for you as a player to improve and get better". Maybe. But there's a lot of good coaches out there.

"He's had some success against New Zealand in the past, but hopefully he doesn't get any on Saturday", Hansen said of Jones. We've got some good training under our belt, we've adjusted coming from Japan so the group that's got here is fresh and looking forward to the challenge and it's going to be a big one.

"Does it mean we've got to be on guard against England?".
