What have the coaches said?

England head coach Eddie Jones: “Over the past three weeks our biggest message to the players is what an opportunity this is to show what they can do and make their mark with England.

“They’ve applied themselves as a group and worked very hard individually during this camp to reach their personal bests.

“Now it’s all about coming together as a team, gelling and putting in a good performance at the weekend.”

USA head coach Garry Gold: “What makes them such a good side is the intensity and the pace that they play at, and to be able to execute their skills at that pace. We are not going to get a huge amount of opportunities, but when we do we have to make them count.

“That is the biggest thing about top-level test match rugby, time and space is taken away from you. But we will only get better by playing against teams like this.

“They (England) will want to push the boundaries and play a ball-in-hand game of rugby. They are going to try and use the width of the field, ask questions of our defence and stretch us.”
