TOKYO, 23 Oct - Imagine being on the wrong end of a shoulder tackle from Sonny Bill Williams and a short while later finding yourself at the same holiday hotel in Fiji.
England's Anthony Watson, pictured, was in exactly that position after a bruising encounter with the All Black while on British and Irish Lions duty in 2017.
The winger, who is one of 13 players from that successful tour in Eddie Jones's squad, survived the collision to help the Lions win 24-21 while Williams, below, became the first New Zealand player in 50 years to be sent off. He was banned for four weeks.
"It was completely random," Watson said. "Everyone was cracking up in the hotel but we were just sat there as if nothing had happened.
"I know it was a massive swing of momentum in terms of the test and the impact it had but I didn't see it as the big deal that was made out - that there was a massive drama and we were going to hate each other for the rest of our lives, or anything like that.
"We just talked about all kinds of stuff; about rugby, his family and stuff like that. It was just a general conversation - we didn't talk about the tackle.
"He was just doing what he thought was right at the time but he apologised the day after. He's a very nice bloke, very down to earth and I don't hold any type of grudge against him at all. It's rugby at the end of the day."
England face the All Blacks in the semi-final at International Stadium Yokohama on Saturday and the experience of that Lions tour means many of the players will be unfazed by the prospect of playing the world champions.
"I was never too fazed by the whole mystique of the All Blacks. I respect the prolonged success they've had as a team but the whole aura that surrounds them and the invincible stuff - I never bought into that.
"They are rugby players and we're rugby players. We work very hard and they work very hard. They are definitely beatable.
"We will not let the occasion of the game dictate anything to us. I thought we did that very well last weekend (against Australia) and that was managed by our leaders like Owen (Farrell), Maro (Itoje) and Mako (Vunipola). Guys like that were on it all week and it will be the same again this week."
Jones has collected notes and input from the Lions players to help work out a way to beat Steve Hansen's team.
"Most of my stuff was technical. It wasn't focussed on their gameplan or anything like that. It was just focussed on specific things and the aerial battle was one of them."
