So then. Take a deep breath.
It would be a really good thing for international rugby should England beat New Zealand at Twickenham overnight.
Remember England will host the next Rugby World Cup. Having a home side going in with a chance is obviously a bonus.
Competition is good.
England are not the traditional enemy; South Africa is.
England’s victory over New Zealand in 2012 was the best game of that year.
Think of what back-to-back England wins against New Zealand would do as a backdrop for when England comes here for three tests in June.
Isn’t the idea that New Zealand are the best side between World Cups a curse?
