New Zealand and England meet at Twickenham on Sunday (NZT) for the first time in four years.

"It's hard to wrap your arms around when you're both hitting each other at that much force, but I tried to".

He said: "We know they're going to have an ideal preparation for the game; they'll be up for the game".

Eddie Jones also hopes the input of the former All Blacks coach John Mitchell, now in England's camp, will enable his side to "climb Everest" by toppling the world's No 1 side on Saturday.

England will be relieved to have available a player described by Eddie Jones as the team's "spiritual leader", but the incident has polarised opinion as the sport continues to tie itself in knots over its crackdown on unsafe tackles.

"The bottom line is we talk, our wives talk, and that's not surprising".

He (Emery) is important. "I want, with each player to continue and hope we can do better", Metro Uk quoted Emery as saying . Officials are human beings and sometimes we all make mistakes".

"The only people that don't understand what it's like to be a head coach of an global team are the people who've never been one", the All Blacks head coach said. "There's a lot of pressure there, all the time, whether you're winning or losing".

"It comes just in..."

Having now strung two wins together since five consecutive losses in 2018, Jones responded to whether England's biggest challenge this week is convincing his players that victory against the world champions is a possibility. Eddie more than anybody understands that.

Watching his England side overcome a half-time deficit to defeat South Africa at Twickenham, the 12-11 win was not enough to soothe the Australian's mood. And he's still doing the same job. We are asking one referee to do it the way they did it when blokes like me were playing, jogging around.

Injuries have taken their toll on Jones' squad too but that gave him a chance to take a look at several players who have excelled in the early weeks of the Gallagher Premiership Rugby season - like Newcastle Falcons' Mark Wilson and Exeter Chiefs' Alec Hepburn. The action continues on Saturday against New Zealand before clashes against Japan and Australia.

New Zealand have only lost two of their last 21 Tests, including to South Africa in the recent Rugby Championship.
