Eddie Jones will pay little attention when the All Blacks perform their haka at Twickenham, joking that he would not notice if pop group the Spice Girls were singing instead.
England faces Steve Hansen’s world champions for the first time in four years in London on Sunday.

World Rugby, the sport’s governing body, has instructed teams to respect the traditional challenge
“At that stage of the game, they could be playing the Spice Girls and I wouldn’t know what’s being played,” Jones said at a media conference on Thursday.
“They’re making a comeback aren’t they, the Spice Girls? Maybe they could sing at that time. It’s got not relevance to me at all.”
