New Zealand arrive at Twickenham this weekend desperate to avenge their only loss in 32 matches, this time last year. Just how desperate they are to get one back over the English, however, became apparent earlier today when The Telegraph gained access to a meeting room the All Blacks used in their London hotel on Monday.
Arriving in the aptly named Lancaster suite, players were met with the message: “We are the most dominant team in the history of the world”. Motivation will surely not be lacking for this game, but the management are evidently keen to make sure everyone is as pumped up as they can be.
There were a series of other motivational mantras scribbled on a whiteboard in the room, including: “We are playing England – this is about history, about human nature”, and “On Saturday, don’t moan, even to yourself”.
What do you think? Will the All Blacks avenge last year’s loss, or will England record another historic victory?
