England will be looking to go one better than last week when they face the All Blacks in the second Test in Dunedin on Saturday.
The visitors came close to catching New Zealand out in the home team’s first Test of the year in Auckland, but a late Conrad Smith try saw the All Blacks secure a tense 25-20 victory at Eden Park. This means that both teams will be looking to launch a comeback of sorts heading into their second clash at the sheltered Forsyth-Barr Stadium.
Things are likely to be even tougher for England this time around, as the All Blacks have had another week together and will be intent on putting things right and asserting their dominance as the world’s best team.
Lancaster faced some pleasant selection headaches this week, with the players involved in the Premiership final available again and last weeks team having performed so well.
He decided to show faith in some of the players that served him well during the Six Nations, with flyhalf Owen Farrell entrusted with steering the ship once more.
