Steve Hansen discusses Andrew Hore incident and England's players

All Blacks coach Steve Hansen spoke to the media earlier today ahead of his team's Test against England at Twickenham on Saturday.

Hansen addressed the Andrew Hore suspension for the strike on Bradley Davies, spoke about where the strengths are in the England team, and also said that he thinks flyhalf Owen Farrell must be a tidy player, considering he was nominated for IRB Player of the Year 2012.

hahaha he looks so bored trotting out all that nonesense - our back three is very average, and farrell is not a "tidy player" unless you take into account his strip as he's always on the bench. say it like it is steve, you're going to beat us by about 15 points but the scoreline will flatter us.

Haha I was about to say the same! He's just rattling off the usual pre-match nonsense while saying absolutely nothing... Watch his face though, he seems to be smiling a little when discussing Farrel and the England backs ;-)

At least he somewhat owned up for the Hore incident, which is what it was; an incident. I don't think Hore's a dirty player at all, but in this case he got what he deserved.

Based on ratings which must count for something. It's interesting to note the difference between NZ & England is 11.84 points. Also interesting is that when you take those 11.84 points off of England's 81.07 you fall somewhere between Japan & the USA.

NZ are 11.84 points better than England.
England are 10.98 points better than Japan & 12.75 points better than USA

Also worth noting the from 34 games played between NZ and England. NZ has won 27 thats 79.41%

No wonder England did a victory lap the last time we drew.
