England vs. New Zealand: All Blacks go on spying mission at Twickenham

'I just think the game is getting more intense.

"You don't ring people up you don't like, just because they are doing the same job as you".

England have otherwise been given a clean bill of health ahead of Saturday's visit of New Zealand to Twickenham - the first time they have faced the world champions in four years.

Asked this morning by a United Kingdom writer about his "experimenting" last weekend at Ajinomoto Stadium, and whether that would be continuing this week before the test against England at Twickenham, Hansen seized his chance to fire back.

"We are asking one referee to do it the way they did it when blokes like me were playing - jogging round the field basically".

"And if you look at our overall numbers, we're actually overall pretty good".

"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", Hansen said. If you're off on any one little bit of your game you're going to get hit.

This morning at 7:00am, the Los Angeles Fire Department reported via Twitter that the fire is an "imminent threat" to Malibu. The nearest evacuation center is at Palisades High School, located at 15777 Bowdoin St, Pacific Palisades, CA 90272.

England lost four consecutive Test matches to New Zealand in 2014, but a quirk of the global fixture schedules means the two sides have not met since.

"I guess the obvious answer, which really is the only answer, is that the selectors didn't pick him", said Foster.

England coach Eddie Jones believes the introduction of a second referee could be rugby union's answer to dealing with the increasing intensity of the game. They've got some good ideas about the game so we've got plenty of enthusiasm 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.

"So you'll probably find people that are close to those players and family that might support it, then you'd have others with a different view on players jumping into a national team from another country so quickly".

"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", added Hansen. "It was physical, it's probably not the style of rugby we're used to but they're extremely good at what they did".
