Andy Robinson has rejected allegations that England launched a spying mission on New Zealand-in the build-up to Saturday's-clash at Twickenham.
All Blacks coach Graham Henry, after announcing his side to face England, told a press conference at the team's London hotel that two men in camouflage were seen filming the closed training session at Grasshoppers Rugby Club.
Henry said: "They ( England) are obviously taking this Test match very seriously. They had their cameramen there today - unless it was one of you (television) people at the back? Was anyone hiding behind the fence today in camouflage taking a video of the training?
"I think they (England) are pretty switched on and keen on the game.
"You look at strengths and weaknesses of the opposition and formulate a game-plan. How we played against Wales and Ireland is not necessarily how we will play against England. I guess they are trying to get more information. It's over the top."
All Blacks media manager Scott Compton said television crews had briefly been allowed into the training session, but the two cameramen in question had not been in the designated area and were seen filming outside the agreed time.
"When approached, the two men claimed to be from the news agency Reuters, but then scarpered," said Compton.
A spokesman from Reuters said they had not sent any television cameramen to the All Blacks' training session.
England's denial was equally forthright, with a Rugby Football Union spokesman stating: "It's not true."
