When England produced a heroic defensive performance to defeat New Zealand 15-13 in Wellington in 2003 they were described in the local media as a "tribe of white orcs on steroids", with a pack that "intimidated and unsettled".

Tuilagi was due to make his first worldwide appearance in two years in the 12-11 victory over South Africa that opened the Quilter Internationals, only to withdraw from the bench because of a minor groin strain. It was great to see him running around today.

Manu Tuilagi is poised to make his England comeback on Saturday after being included in a 25-man squad to step-up preparations for New Zealand's visit to Twickenham.

'We know what a world-class operator Manu is, ' Youngs told Sky Sports.

Tuilagi was meant to return to action in last weekend's narrow 12-11 victory over the Springboks but was a late withdrawal from the matchday 23 with a minor groin strain. I'm really pleased he's able to get back out there. It settles down the boys to know that he's there'.

Europe and its security", he said, referring to Trump's recent decision to quit the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces treaty. The French president recalled that the European Union is a unique project of peace and prosperity in the world's history.

Courtney Lawes is also available having overcome a back problem that forced him to miss the same match, while there is no concern about the bang to the hip Owen Farrell took on Saturday. You know against New Zealand you're going to have score tries, simply trying to slot penalties probably isn't going to be enough because of the threat they pose. "It is about going out there and really taking the game to them".

England will unveil their team to take on the reigning world champions at midday on Thursday.

"I think it's important to recognise that there's a reason they've been so dominant for years".

'That is one thing we definitely don't want to do because we know what they're capable of.

"We don't want to get lost in what they do and how they play and everything like that".
