Dan Carter says the current All Blacks are better than his 2015 Rugby World Cup-winning squad and will beat England by 10 to 12 points.
“Teams peak at the World Cup but the All Blacks have got better since 2015,” Carter told the Daily Mail.
“Maybe the opposition hasn’t been as strong but they’re just playing with so much confidence.
“They’re playing the game a lot faster than we did in 2015 in terms of execution and the speed. I’ve not seen the GPS stats but they’re running more and the ball’s in play a lot more. Opponents just haven’t been fit enough to keep up with the speed they play at.
“Hopefully it’ll be a close game at Twickenham but I’d give the All Blacks a 10 or 12-point margin because their speed will be too strong.”
