Jones ready for All Blacks test
Eddie Jones says England will work on exploiting New Zealand's weaknesses this week and insists they are beatable.
The Red Rose set up a Rugby World Cup semi-final clash with the All Blacks by beating Australia 40-16 in the quarters on Saturday but now face their biggest test yet.
New Zealand thrashed Ireland 46-14 on the same day and the two-time defending champions have not been beaten in the tournament since losing a quarter-final to France in 2007.
However, Jones says his England side have nothing to be afraid of and that they will do everything they can to expose and exploit the Kiwi's weaknesses.
"No one's got a 100% record in Test rugby," said Jones. "No one averages 100 in Test cricket. No one wins every Grand Slam 6-0 6-0. So every team has got a weakness. Every team is beatable."
When asked what those weaknesses were, Jones added: "Well, we'll find that out during the week."
"The All Blacks are a great side - well coached, good leadership team - if you give them the type of ball they want, they are hard to defend against," added Jones.
"But like any team they've got weaknesses. If I was an Englishman I'd be making sure that whatever time the kick-off is in England you're ready to sit down and watch it."
