Things have changed a lot since then, however, with England starting to find some form under Borthwick, and the All Blacks under new management. With several big-name players having hung up their boots since October’s Rugby World Cup final, incoming head coach Scott Robertson has named a new-look XV, and the tourists will have their eyes on a rare victory on New Zealand soil.

It’s an early start for rugby fans in the UK, as the Dunedin test match kicks off at 8.05am BST (7.05pm NZST).
