Even the All Blacks stand off when Marx has the ball
England got their autumn series off to a winning start at Twickenham with a hard-fought 12-11 victory over South Africa, but the main talking point was Farrell's "no-arms" tackle on Esterhuizen in the dying seconds of the game.
"Not only is Steve Hansen's side massively more experienced, it arrives with another Southern Hemisphere Rugby Championship under its belt", he said.
New Zealand will play England for the first time in four years this weekend at Twickenham in a hotly anticipated match.
"If you add to the mix the elusive brilliance of Beauden Barrett and Ben Smith, as well as the finishing prowess of Rieko Ioane, there is an argument to be made that, for once, England would do better not to turn up".
England supplied the largest contingent of players to the 2017 Lions tour and upon their return, Eddie Jones requested suggestions from the likes of Owen Farrell and Maro Itoje on how the All Blacks could be beaten.
One dead after mid-air plane crash in Ottawa's west end
Police walk on to a property as they work at the site of a small plane crash in the Carp area of Ottawa on November 4, 2018. The Transportation Safety Board confirmed Sunday afternoon it was deploying a team of investigators to the scene.
"England will have to deliver a game for-the-ages, and by definition those do not come around very often".
Flyhalf Handre Pollard had the chance to win it for South Africa with another long-range penalty three minutes from time but his effort skimmed off the outside of the post.
"(The) Most important thing is what we do next", the Australian said. We've lost a few games, we played tough and we won.
That, however, may not be the end of the matter with citing commissioner Keith Brown - who is himself from New Zealand - having 24 hours from Saturday's final whistle to decide if further disciplinary action should be taken.
"It was one of those Test matches that was a bounce of ball, most Test matches are like that when you're playing the top teams and you've got to ride your luck". Well, you're going to do it at some stage - you know that, you know that. "Sometimes you can take what you want from it", Farrell said. Imagine if Theresa May comes out and says: "'We got the result because we hung in there.' I don't think that's going to happen".
Chelsea vs Crystal Palace, Premier League
Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has challenged Danny Drinkwater and Victor Moses to secure their futures by improving their games. It is risky to not have continuity, we need to improve continuity.

Where they can take heart, however, is the three point lead they have over opponents Manchester United ahead of Saturday's match. The Red Devils are already 9 points behind with early pacesetter Manchester City with their title dreams all but over.
Arsenal now closer to Premier League's best - Emery
With Xhaka I am happy, because first he's a very good player, and he has a very good commitment for us. "I'm not interested, no". Coming away from Arsenal and being disappointed with a draw is a positive, and also the amount of chances we created".
