England: Owen Farrell cleared to tackle All Blacks

England have not played reigning world champions New Zealand since 2014 and next week's showdown has been eagerly anticipated ahead of next year's World Cup in Japan.

With Curry highly unlikely to recover by the weekend, Jones said Sam Underhill and Mark Wilson are next in line to wear the No 7 jersey.

The Australian official could have awarded South Africa a penalty which, had it gone over, would have seen the visitors snatch victory in the opening match of their European tour.

"Manu is back and progressing well - we're cautiously optimistic he'll be available this week, the same with Courtney Lawes".

"We had a meeting with the senior players last night (Sunday) and have a pretty good idea how we want to play against New Zealand".

Jones started Owen Farrell at fly-half for just the third time under his stewardship but when it came to describing how the 10-12-13 axis performed against the Springboks, Jones was less complimentary, "Very rusty, as you'd expect with three training runs". We lost a few games but we played tough today and we won.

Two Farrell penalties kept England in touch before a long-range Elliot Daly kick gave Jones' men the lead.

"And the expectations when you coach a top side like England are, you're expected to win, and play well". We are asking one referee to do it the way they did it when blokes like me were playing, jogging around.

Jones replied, "I think that's part of preparing for any game. Once you've got that, then you've got an opportunity to put yourself in the position where you think about winning the game".

That, however, may not be the end of the matter with citing commissioner Keith Brown - who is himself from New Zealand - having 24 hours from Saturday's final whistle to decide if further disciplinary action should be taken. We're a bloody good team.
