Cape Town - A world record is in the offing for the All Blacks in their Test against England at Twickenham on Saturday.

England will face back-to-back world champions New Zealand for the first time in four years at Twickenham on Saturday, with Hansen insisting Jones' men remain a global power.

Japan will play England at Twickenham on November 17 followed by a test against 2019 pool opponents Russian Federation, ranked 19, in Gloucester on November 24.

"If you're good enough to take that away from them then you've got to be good enough to score points".

Tom Curry has been ruled out of the remainder of England's autumn series with an ankle injury the Sale flanker sustained against South Africa.

"The only people that don't understand what it's like to be a head coach of an global team are the people who have never been one", Hansen said.

Hansen was impressed by how Jones managed to prepare a depleted England side to upset South Africa 12-11 last weekend.

"Eddie more than anybody understands that".

"But you know that, you know that there's going to be pressure with the job, and you accept that and you get on with it".

"And looking from afar, I think he's doing a pretty good job".

Territory is a big part of the way they play and their kicking game allows them to do that so we are going to have to have good plans around how we defuse that and we will go from there.

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

"To win a Test match against a good opponent you've got to do your homework and things have to fall your way a little bit". "They are a good rugby team".

New Zealand go into the game on the back of a 69-31 win over Japan in Tokyo last Saturday with a side featuring eight debutants.
