The two sides meet in the opening weekend of the Six Nations tomorrow to play for the Calcutta Cup, which is currently held by England.
The captain told Sky Sports News: "It is always a massive occasion. We spoke in the week about the honour of playing in the oldest international rugby fixture in history.
"Both sides will be fully aware of what the game means and the history and rivalry between the two countries.
"I have a very talented and great group around me who enjoy going out there and playing rugby. I think that showed in the autumn."
England finished second in the 2012 championship.
