England made the perfect start to their Autumn internationals last week – but there is no time to rest of their laurels.
Eddie Jones’ side secured the narrowest of victories over South Africa at the weekend and were perhaps a little lucky when Owen Farrell was adjudged not to have fouled Andre Esterhuizen in the final play of the game, thus avoiding a crucial penalty.
The Red Rose have since been boosted by the news that Farrell will not be cited for the challenge, meaning the co-captain has avoided a suspension.
So, onto the next one – and it does not get much tougher than this. The All Blacks are undoubtedly the best team in the world right now and provide the biggest test of Jones’ men heading into next year’s World Cup.
But when does the action take place? Where can you watch it? And what is the latest team news?
