England head coach Stuart Lancaster has claimed that his team are excited to take on New Zealand on Saturday.

Lancaster's side host the All Blacks at Twickenham this weekend, but he insists that there is no fear in the camp ahead of the game against the world champions.

"To go into any game you have to believe in yourselves as a group and this game is no exception to that," Lancaster told reporters at a press conference. "The challenge remains the same when you're playing the best team in the world.

"You know it's going to be a formidable challenge but it's one that we're excited about."

England have beaten Australia and Argentina in their previous two games.
