England are looking to turn the page on a disappointing Six Nations

Jones, under fire at the end of the Six Nations, is looking to end a five-match losing run on Saturday.

But he said he is expecting more of the same in terms of the tempo of the second test.

The Aussie commented: "Bloemfontein's right in the centre of South Africa.

"It's a very strong Afrikaans area, very fast ground, at altitude, has an average of 60 points per test match.

"So we're anticipating an ebb and flow type game like we had at Jo'burg.

"Whenever you have a win, you come into the next game with a bit of confidence, so we've got to make sure we don't dent that confidence early."

 

England last toured South Africa in 2012 when they only managed to avoid a whitewash by drawing the third and final Test.

But Owen Farrell – captaining the squad in the absence of Dylan Hartley – thinks it could be a different story this time.

He said: "This group has a lot more experience now and we are excited to be here.

"Coming over here, you expect a physical challenge. We have to make sure we are up there with that and we are pretty smart all over the field – and are able to execute at the same time."
