Percival: Test Against The Best

Mark Percival says he wants to test himself against the best and that will come this Saturday when England take on New Zealand.

“It is one of the biggest tests,” the centre said. “They are very physical and strong and it is a challenge I am ready for. I want to test myself against them.

“It is a big game and a lot of people will be watching in a massive stadium.”

He continued: “It’s been a good camp so far. I’ve been on a few now so it is quite easy to come back in. Even though I haven’t played that many games for England, I have enjoyed being in the camps and learning from the best players in the world.

“It’s been good and I am looking forward to the rest of the week.

“It’s important to get a game in mid-season and I’m sure a lot of people will be watching it back home. We’re all looking forward to it. It is going to be a good occasion.”

England v New Zealand kicks off at 9:10pm on Saturday. You can watch live coverage of the game on BBC from 9pm.
