"New Zealand are a very good team and can choose how they want to play", he said.

Now another of English rugby union's most notorious recidivists, Chris Ashton, has re-entered the Test picture, with the same kind of air of the unexpected, with his selection to start in the big Test of the autumn against the world champions, New Zealand, at Twickenham tomorrow.

"That try-scoring skill is nothing coached", said Jones.

"England have to confront New Zealand before the first whistle on Saturday by responding to the haka".

"The acceleration requirement of the players is 30 percent more now than it was two or three years ago, so the game's getting physically more intense and therefore you need to be able to particularly fill the high-work rate positions with two players because it's nearly impossible now to field a front-rower for 80 minutes".

While that challenge cast a spotlight on Farrell's physical approach, Jones believes it is England's playmaker who is given insufficient protection by referees while borderline hits on Ireland's Johnny Sexton are often condemned.

"However, for us it's about making our own statement". He takes the ball to the line, he puts his body on the line, he doesn't play in a dinner suit.

But Read, who played in the All Blacks" 24-21 victory over England at "headquarters' in 2014, was braced for a tough encounter in front of a capacity crowd of more than 80 000.

"New Zealand week is different".

Lawes missed the 12-11 victory over South Africa with a problem that initially surfaced early last month and grew more severe when having to squeeze his 6ft 7in frame into a single bed at a local hotel the night before Northampton's defeat to Leicester at Twickenham.

A powerful forward pack gave scrumhalf Jan Webster a platform to produce a fine display of tactical kicking as England outscored the All Blacks' three tries to two, via flank Tony Neary, wing Peter Squires and prop Stack Stevens. "I need to be competitive and abrasive, but I have to react to the referee better and understand what he is and isn't going to let go", he said.

"You know that the opposition can do what they like, and for us, we will respect what they do".

"The Lions tour has made it bigger because we weren't successful in only drawing the series".

England: Elliot Daly, Chris Ashton, Henry Slade, Ben Te'o, Jonny May, Owen Farrell (co-captain) Ben Youngs; Ben Moon, Dylan Hartley (co-captain), Kyle Sinckler, Maro Itoje, George Kruis, Brad Shields, Sam Underhill, Mark Wilson.
