The former New Zealand rugby league international is one of nine changes made by England boss Martin Johnson for the clash in Dunedin.
And having been one of the England players who was on the much-criticised team night out last Sunday, Hape is determined to do his talking on the pitch.
"I am looking to stamp my mark on this World Cup," he said. "What has happened has happened.
"It is a distraction that is trying to take us away from focusing on our main point while we are here, which is rugby.
"We can't get drawn into things that have been happening or people who are making stories up.
"This is a big game and we owe it to ourselves and all our fans to go out there and put in a good performance.
"I am itching to get out there. Toby Flood and I have trained well together this week and I am looking for a big performance.
"Last week was frustrating, watching the game against Argentina. This week is our chance."
