"It's strategic, not on form, because Sam has been playing lovely rugby", Hansen said. Two heavyweights, one dressed in black, one dressed in white.

"I think he's better than that now", said the Australian.

"You saw the amount of contest at the breakdown today, it's hard to get fast ball, so your ability to find space through having two guys who have got great vision is certainly an advantage". "No one thinks we can win", he said.

But concerns about the threat posed by Australia powerhouse midfielder Samu Kerevi saw him benched for the quarterfinal.

"He's ready to cut loose against New Zealand".

"Every game we have a look at the conditions, the opposition, what we think we need to do, what we need to take away from the opposition and this is the best fit for us". Had Jones, someone asked, put a smiley emoji on the end of the text message he sent Hansen this week? So there's no pressure on us, we've just got to have a great week, enjoy it, relax. What he needs to work out is what are England going to do about the pressure they are under. Whenever you play against New Zealand your work off the ball is going to be massively important.

Jones knows that, so he's tried a few avenues to get under the skins of New Zealanders ahead of Saturday's semifinal at Yokohama.

"I think if you have experienced that before you understand what you have got to prepare yourself for and most of our squad have been involved in those games so we've got great experience". It's all about this game and the moments it will bring.

In the sole switch among the replacements, Mark Wilson replaced fellow flanker Lewis Ludlam when the team was announced Thursday. From a place called Bluff in the deepest south to Cape Reinga in the far north, Hansen can genuinely say the men wearing All Blacks jerseys at the Rugby World Cup have the full backing of their nation.
