Farrell eager to end New Zealand's unbeaten run

Saracen's Owen Farrel in action against South Africa last week

England fly-half Owen Farrell insists he is scared of nobody as he prepares to line up against world champions New Zealand at Twickenham tomorrow.

Farrell's no-fear mentality is what marks him out as a special player in the eyes of head coach Stuart Lancaster and it represents England's attitude ahead of tomorrow's final Autumn International.

"New Zealand are a world-class team. They are unbeaten in 20 matches - that is the challenge to look forward to, there is no point being scared of it," Farrell said.

"Rugby is a game that I love. It's not a game that I'm scared of.

"It may be a game against the best team in the world but it is still another game of rugby.

"I know we've been on the wrong side of two results (against Australia and South Africa) but we've got better and better and we've pushed teams right to the end.

"Hopefully it's time to win one this weekend."
