Dylan Hartley: 'New Zealand want England revenge'

Dylan Hartley says that New Zealand will want payback against England when they meet at the weekend.

Dylan Hartley has insisted that world champions New Zealand will be determined to get revenge when they face England at Twickenham this weekend.

The All Blacks were surprisingly beaten by the Red Rose in the Autumn Internationals last year, and they face an England side on Saturday who go into the match on the back of wins over Australia and Argentina on home turf.

"They're a proud nation and a proud team and will be looking for payback," Hartley, who was born in New Zealand, told reporters.

"The All Blacks have been fantastic on recent form and come here with a big number one badge on.

"We'll have to be up for it and play the perfect game - for the whole game."

England recovered to beat Australia 20-13 earlier this month before earning a 31-12 win over Argentina on Saturday.
