On this week's RFU Podcast, England Under 20 fly half Sam Olver looks ahead to Sunday's Junior World Championship semi-final clash against Ireland.

The Northampton Saints youngster was on the spot to kick a last-gasp penalty to beat Argentina 17-16 in England's final group match, and says the reigning champions are determined to retain their crown.

We also hear from Stuart Lancaster, who explains a few key selections for Saturday's second Test against New Zealand in Dunedin – including that of Manu Tuilagi on the right wing.

Scrum half Danny Care is another new face in a re-jigged backline charged with levelling the series, and we caught up with him, as well as Harlequins teammate Joe Marler.

Finally, Tom Wood – back on international duty after leading Northampton Saints to Aviva Premiership glory – offered an insight into England's preparation for this mammoth encounter at Forsyth Barr Stadium.
