As All Blacks prepare for the first test session with England in four years, the lack of knowledge will not go on one face that is known to the bigger side.
Former Captain Hurricanes looks like home with his new team, but he still complains.

Former Captain Hurricane Brad Shields is now a part of the English team and looks at home in his new country, but admits he is still accustomed to lingo.
"I usually call loosely forward loosies, but here they are back row, second row, first row – not locks and loosies so I'm always mixing with such things," said Shields 1 NEWS.
Shields, 27, has an English heritage and quickly entered the Eddie Jones team in June after leaving Hurricane this season.
The broken chef then returned, but re-fired, and Twickenham debuted at a tense 12-11 victory over South Africa last week (NZT) and appreciated every moment.
"It was an amazing experience to put a jersey and play at that stadium and I was always wondering how it would be."
I hope this weekend will experience another Twickenham show on All Blacks, and English assistant coach Steve Borthwick says his record was already impressive.
"Very experienced, very modest, very respectful," Borthwick said.
Shields today reveals whether it will be part of the Sunday test that begins Thursday, Thursday, at the NZT.
