Mark Regan will adopt a back-to-basics approach when he makes his first England start since the World Cup on Saturday.
The Leeds hooker, whose Test debut came under Sir Clive Woodward's coaching predecessor Jack Rowell back in 1995, returns to international duties as replacement for struggling World Cup star Steve Thompson.
The 32-year-old is determined to make the most of his opportunity as England target a rapid recovery from the 36-3 defeat against New Zealand in Dunedin.
"At the end of the day, we didn't perform," Regan said.
"We didn't get our basics right, we didn't play as a team and our defence wasn't too great.
"We are playing against a world-class side so we have got to step up to the mark.
"The guys who are coming in, like myself, have got a duty to perform.
"It's about concentration, commitment and a bit more physicality.
"There are a lot of things spoken about this England pack that we didn't do last Saturday and hopefully we can turn it around," the hooker added.
"The All Blacks forwards were out to impress their new coach and they did really well as a new unit coming together.
"At the end of the day, I don't think we performed to our greatest - we know that we have a lot of work to do.
"We are going to go out there and see if we can get all our basics right so we can front-up to them.''
Although the Bristolian can boast 31 caps, almost half of those have been from off the bench.
He now has a chance to illustrate an experienced, continuing worth to England, especially in the lineouts where Thompson and his jumpers went so astray at Carisbrook.
"We were outplayed and hopefully we can put that right on Saturday,'' said the former Bath forward.
"To be part of the England set-up is a great honour and that's what has kept me going through the years.
"I think I have sat on the bench 31 or 32 times and I've now got a chance to play, which I hope to take.
"We were disappointed to lose but we've got another crack at it and hopefully we can put things right.
"We are confident in our own ability as a squad and we've stuck together on this tour.
"We knew it was going to be tough and we played against a very good All Blacks side at Carisbrook.
"I am sure it will be the same again this weekend but at least we know exactly what is coming at us,'' Regan added
