St George Illawarra Dragons winger Jason Nightingale caught up with our friends from the NZ Warriors ahead of the 30 hour journey from Auckland to Leeds to kick off the New Zealand Kiwi's tour of the UK.
Nightingale believes the new look Kiwi side will have to be at their best to beat England on home soil as they did in the semi finals of the World Cup back in 2013.
"The conditions in England are a lot different especially for most of us who live in Australia"
"England also step up when they are over on their home soil. They do rise to the occasion and we are going to have to meet them if we are to get the win out of this series".
The Kiwis will take on Leeds Rhinos in a warm up game on Saturday (UK Time) before the 3 game series against England kicks off at the KC Stadium in Hull on Sunday November 1.
