ROBSHAW READY FOR THE KIWIS.
England v N Zealand, 2.30pm CHRIS ROBSHAW is determined to put two of the toughest weeks of his career behind him when he leads England into a battle at Twickenham today.
Lying in wait for England's greenhorn side will be world champions New Zealand who have marched unbeaten through Europe on autumn tours for the last decade.
England coach Andy Farrell described it this week as "the ultimate test" and it will be for Robshaw (left) whose ability and captaincy have been questioned over the last fortnight.
"When you sign up for the job of England captain you know that days like this will come, when pressure is put on you," Robshaw said. You know there'll be good days and some tough days.
"Over the last couple of weeks, myself and the other players have learned a lot about international rugby. We have learned the hard way."
