Tuilagi and Lawes could face All Blacks, Curry unlikely

Tuilagi and Lawes could face All Blacks, Curry unlikely

England trained in the rain on Wednesday and they will have to get used to such weather conditions as Twickenham is expecting light rain on Saturday.

Tom Curry is out of England's autumn Test against New Zealand with what head coach Eddie Jones described as a "severe ankle injury".

The 27-year-old was due back in the worldwide arena last weekend but he was withdrawn from England's squad on the eve of their 12-11 win over the Springboks because of a groin strain.

Repeated knee, hamstring and groin injuries have since held his career back but the return of his attacking power could prove crucial as England look to do more than simply contain the world's best team.

Tuilagi will forever be remembered for his dazzling display in the 38-21 triumph over the All Blacks at Twickenham in 2012.

Tom Curry has been ruled out of the remainder of England's autumn series by the ankle injury sustained against South Africa.

Ben Youngs has welcomed the return of England's game-breaker Manu Tuilagi and is itching to see him let loose on the All Blacks this weekend. Underhill is expected to replace him when Jones names his team on Thursday.

Despite the cuts to Final Fantasy XV's planned releases, Square Enix isn't turning its back on the game. The troubled development of Final Fantasy XV continues, even two years after launch.


After the test match against New Zealand, England will then face Japan and Australia across consecutive weekends.

Courtney Lawes is also available having overcome a back problem that forced him to miss the same match, while there is no concern about the bang to the hip Owen Farrell took on Saturday. He had no idea!'.

"One thing about the All Blacks is that you are going to have to score tries".

He said: "We know they're going to have an ideal preparation for the game; they'll be up for the game".

'So having guys like him and other guys is vital because you need guys that are going to be game changers or game-breakers and he's certainly one of those guys, so he's going to be important if he's involved'.

"We don't want to get lost in what they do and how they play and everything like that".
