Stander will relish England contest

South African native CJ Stander says playing against England is always a big motivation as he prepares to earn his third Ireland cap at Twickenham on Saturday.

"I am South African. I'm not Irish but it's the same thing for South Africans," said flanker Stander, 25. "It doesn't matter what you play or what you do. We have a thing about England."

Jared Payne remains an injury concern for Ireland although he will be given until Thursday to prove his fitness for Saturday's game.
